I just had a really sad thought process.
Recently my parents have been discussing getting another dog. They said that if we do it would be around this time next year. My brother(he’s 20, but still lives at home) and sister (she just turned 13) were really excited, but I was really upset when I realized that I would be leaving for college at that point. It kind of made me realize that this coming year is like my last year of being with my family. Like as a whole. Who knows where I’ll be after I graduate? Maybe my brother will be married or even have kids by then. And my sister will be leaving high school as soon as I graduate college. After this year my family will be so different and I’m not sure if I’m ok with it.
