What is This "Growing Up" Thing?

Honestly, though. When will I know how to do this "growing up" thing?
I have lived in Arizona my whole life. Born here, raised here, live here still.
So what happens when the rest of my family decides to move to North Dakota without me and my sister?
Will I really have a home anymore?
When will I see my family?
Do I really have to go to North Dakota for Christmas when it's in the negative temperatures?!?

These are all questions I have been asking myself.
I know plenty of people go to school out-of-state and that it's quite normal to not see your family save for the big holidays; but it seems very different for me to be staying in Arizona and the rest of my family moving on to the north. My sister and I are getting "left behind" because we are big girls in college now.
It's finally starting to hit me - my dad and brother have been living up there for three months now, but I never thought it would be permanent, and now my mom and brother are making the move up there at the end of this month.

I'm honestly feeling quite sad and lonely about the whole thing.
When Dillon left, I still had my family to support me and love me and cheer me up.
But now that family will all be far away, from 4 hours away (my sister) to 26 hours away.
So who do I have now?

Let me know when this growing up stuff will be fun, guys.

  1. Aw, I'm sorry :( That's the worst feeling ever - and once you're out of college and decide to move away even further? Still not fun. Big hugs!

  2. I'm in that same boat too, girl. It'll get better eventually. Just gotta hang in there!

    Also. I don't follow very many blogs, 23 to be exact, and I'm going to be hosting a giveaway sometime next week once my FB page hits 150 likes (it's got 9 to go!), so I wanted to let you know so you could participate since you're one of those. :)

    Hope your day is wonderful!

  3. Sadly, Life never comes at anyone easy. There will always be the good times but there has to be some bad. All you can do is make the best of whatever you are put through. At least now, if you need a get away, your family can be that get away. and since you obviously won't be seeing them all the time like normal.. when you do see them, it will be crazy exciting!
