Completing My Lasts Before Doing All My Firsts

Tonight as I walked off the softball field after our final spring game (we won, by the way), I couldn't help but reminisce about all the great memories I have had here. I took it all in as I walked- the humidity, the gentle breeze, the big, dark Texas sky. It really has been a great year for me to grow and develop as an individual. But it is so bittersweet at the same time as I know the life that awaits me in Minnesota will be full of change, excitement, and adventure. Despite all that, I can't help but feel like I just got here either. It feels like there are so many things to do here, so many people to meet, so many stones to turn up, that I simply haven't had the time to do. I am saying goodbyes and wrapping up things without even fully getting a chance to experience them. But I've made the most of what I have done here, and that's life. I am moving on. I have learned a lot here, and the one thing I hope to never have to do again is complete my lasts before doing all my firsts.
