C'est Fini.

Today as I walk out of my house (at 6am, natch) for the last time until Christmas, I am closing the door on my childhood, my life in Virginia, and my life as The Young Southern Prep. This is such a weird post to write, kind of akin to writing my own obituary, but an epilogue nonetheless. 

All good things must come to an end, and likewise, I have decided to step back from blogging for some time. I don't like finality, so I can't say that in a few months I won't be back here writing seven posts a week, but right now, my heart really just isn't in it anymore.

While it's so tempting to blog and to give myself the opportunity to do so through these next few weeks, I've come to realize that I need to be living for them for myself and my friends, not for the blog post I'm going to write about it later.

I never imagined the things that would happen when I started my blog in mid-January of my freshman year of high school, but this little thing certainly has changed my life for the better. I have gotten to know so many wonderful people and I've enjoyed the glimpse of people's lives through their own blogs. My high school experience was made infinitely cooler as "the girl with the blog", but as high school has ended, I've decided that this should be a stopping point. I've written my way through snowstorms and stressed nights, trips to China, France, India, good weeks, bad weeks, graduations, weekend getaways, and everything under the sun. 

Never fear, this is not the end, you can still find me on twitter and pinterest, and writing for The Smart Girls Guide.

What else can I say, c'est fini!
