This could be a scene from a teen movie

but it's not. Except for the music, which is completely Dawson's Creekesque, this is way too fucked up.

Sitting in the robinson lounge for the end of the year midnight barbeque, I look around me, the faces are people I know, people I've known, or people that I've just shared a space with for the last semester.

It hits me that, on some levels, coming back to the hall, this hall, was a mistake. I feel disconnected where once I was a god. Or as much a god as an RA ever is. At least I felt some connection with most of the building. For all that I am an outgoing person, most of the people in this room are strangers.

Maybe this will be a positive experience, someday. This has helped me realize how much the RA position meant to me. After the two years and the GAHD position at Western, I needed to remember what there was to love about the job.

You were an excellent RA. And you are an even better friend. I do believe in some way, we are in the same boat. This chapter in you life is ending and it is now time to start a new chapter. But always remember that just because this has ended, you can forget it. It is a part of who you are. You will always be that person in a leadership role who takes the extra step and goes above the normal duty. I know that it may not seem like it, but remember all those times that someone in the hall was down and you listened to them? Or when someone was having a good day and you shared it with them? Those are the extra steps.
Perhaps the next chapter in your life could involve the Biosphere? We could just swap places.
P.S. I think I may go through the same feelings as you when I return next semester. It's gonna be weird. I know that I will need you then.
