All good things

Anyone who still reads this may notice that I haven't updated for a good two months or so now. What does that mean? Well, effectively, it means that this is the end of the long and winding road I've been traveling through my college years. In the past two months I've finished my spring semester, moved from the apartment where I lived for two years back to my parents house (very temporarily), returned to Bemidji to finish the one class I needed to take to graduate, lived on my friends' futon for six weeks (tough on my back, let me tell you, but possibly the best time of my life), moved from their house to my other friends' townhouse in the Twin Cities (sleeping on a semi-real bed this time), and spent one last weekend with my best friend before he has to go back to Bemidji. In other words, I've been very busy.

I'm still wandering down the path, of course. But it's a different road, with new signposts and landmarks and a long dashed yellow line that seems to disappear around corners I didn't even know existed. So it's time for me to say goodbye to The Long and Winding Road, the outlet for heartache and angst and love and joy that got me through my college years and helped me to meet some of the most wonderful people at the university and beyond. This will be my last post here.

This blog will, of course, remain archived online. And if I decide to start another blog (which I may do after things have settled down a bit for me), I'll post a link to it here.

It's been a great run. Just looking back in the archive proves to me how much my writing style has grown and changed in the past few years. This is my soul, as raw and real as I have ever exposed to anyone. I always like to think that any real writing contains a bit of the essence of the author, and this blog is filled with my spirit as much as anything else.

To everyone who has read this over the years, I wish you safe journies. Wherever this road takes me, you helped to get me there. Thank you.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Yup, good to be done. Next up is finding a job (hopefully in the Cities), finding a place of my own, and earning enough money to pay back student loans (eesh).
