I do so love the song “Say Goodbye to Hollywood” by Billy Joel. This song is especially pertinent this summer because I did recently say goodbye to Hollywood. When I left California, I did leave a little piece of my heart there. I met some amazing people, had some great experiences, and overall had a crazy-busy awesome summer. Now I’m saying goodbye to A-town (which honestly isn’t as hard, other than a couple friends) and tomorrow I’ll be back in Southern MN, where I feel my heart truly is. Some people think that’s weird, but it’s true. And it’s not because it’s “cool” or because I’m “rebelling” or because I “don’t appreciate” how I’ve grown up, it’s just that my heart has always wanted more room to roam than just a small-town in Northern Wisco, and this summer has proved that to me.
I’m beyond stoked to be going back to school tomorrow (even though I technically can’t move in until Sunday morning. I’m beyond stoked to be starting Greeter training. I’m beyond stoked for this year in general. Yeah, I said goodbye to Hollywood…but I’ll keep finding bigger and better things until my heart sings again. :)
