So today I had to decide where to go to college... Hofstra University.
Yeah, it's on Long Island in NY, kinda far from home. I'm leaving behind all my family, friends and Cat to start over, so to speak. I'll have to make all new friends, get used to the community, take trips to NYC and stuff. It'll be a new experience, to be sure. Talking to Cat tonight, I realized how I'm (strangely) gonna miss her more than anyone else. I've only known her as more than another face in school for around seven months, but she knows more about my personality than anyone else, prolly. I love her, and I always will. She very well could be my soul mate, and if we'd met in another time and place, it would've worked out perfectly. But of course, fate would have it that we meet in our senior year of high school, right before we both go our separate ways, her to firefighter training in Maryland, me to act in NY. When I told her that Hofstra was my choice on IM tonight, she came really close to crying and I definitely did cry. I've devoted the past seven months to getting this girl the happiest that I could make her, be it through a relationship with me or otherwise.
Do you wanna know how I decided to go to Hofstra over St. Mary's in southern Maryland (something I'll never tell Cat): a coin toss. I decided that I'd be just as happy at both places, and that they'd give different experiences. So I said "Heads Hofstra, Tails St. Marys" and flipped it once. I knew that if I did two-out-of-three or something, I'd keep reneging on my decision and just be indecisive about it like the Troy that I am. Nevertheless, after telling my parents the decision, they kept telling me all the plusses of St. Mary's, like how I'd be so prominent there cuz of the small number of theatre majorers there (18, yikes). It made me start to rethink the whole thing through, of course, until I practically smacked myself to stop it :)
Oh well...so one chapter of my life draws near to a close and another is about to be written...
