I haven't posted on this in a long time. It will be about half a year, if not more.

Right now, a lot of things are happening that seem to really make me cherish the family and friends I have been given. My cousins lost their father and deep down, or maybe not so deep, I wonder and think and overanalyze and obsess with the fact that one day my parents will no longer be in my life. It is a scary thing to type that, let alone think it in my head. I can't think of what I would do. They mean so much to me. Even now, losing my cousin is killing me. It's not so much that he passed away; he was suffering and is in a much better place now. It's knowing my cousins are still suffering, and will for the rest of their lives.

Ever since my Grandma died, I have noticed more and more deaths around me. I think it takes one person close to you to no longer be there for you to realize the hole that they leave. You never realize that every person you meet takes a piece of your heart. Some bigger than others. It's not a bad thing, it just hurts like hell when you can no longer see them or hear them or smell them or even remember what their face looks like. The pain ebbs away, but one day you realize you can't think of their voice or see them in your mind and the pain returns, only it's new. This pain is one of finally losing this person not only in life but in mind. Memories are cherished, but don't always last forever.

When you find yourself mindlessly walking through each day, take a moment to step back mentally and observe your world. Cherish your friends and family and those moments. From silly things to momentous occasions. Cherish them then because life is not just a scrapbook or yearbook to look back on; it is a journey to live day-by-day and to plan for the future. Enjoy the people you hold dear in your life, and make everyday count.

It seems that every good transition begins with an intervention. The kind that wakes us up from our stale life and makes us realize we are behind. Or rather, there is more ahead to experience.

I feel there is a shift in me. Almost half a year ago there was a slide backwards, towards the direction of something that I wish had never occurred. But as I told a friend earlier, there are no regrets in life, only experiences.

So there was my mistake. One full of confusion and mix-up of emotions. I emerged from the dust dazed and broken and numb.

For months I forced things - hoping that it would happen again to me. Only for real. And there would be sparks and a constant smile on my face. But the smile that I wore was the one I usually wear. The cover-smile to show the strength above the pain.

Now, I don't know if I'm numb or what has happened. But I feel that there is a change deep inside me. A voice that has never before spoken in my mind. One of confidence, self-worth, and motivation. In one day, I changed the way I am. The poise with which I stand. The voice and words I use. The way I let the world see me. This is a *new* Becca. One that truly does not care about what others say or think, because deep down inside there is a strength born anew.

So this transition begins with the help of those a few years older than me. It is strange how a few hundred more days of experience can show a significant difference between guys my age. They seem to know exactly how to turn my head and make me feel full of worth. I am no longer treated like a piece of meat, but like a person who can be respected and loved.

Nothing can beat that feeling of a complete stranger telling you that you are beautiful.

it is over....

how strange it feels to say I am no longer a high school student, but a college freshie.

for most, our orientations are fast approaching. I wish ALL the best of luck!

the Class of 2007 really made a difference at Lecanto, and I know will make a difference in the world someday.

in the wise words of Edward R. Morrow
"Good night and good luck"
