Attention(The Academy Is…)
His life changing decision
(Sitting at his laptop.)
This is it. I'm gonna do it.
(Clicks on a photo folder.)
New Zealand, here I come. I'm leaving before I go over the edge.
(Selects a photo he took of her during their first Idyllwild trip together.)
Because when I see her, it stings like hell to not hold her. Now, it's not so bad, but once she gets into Cal Poly...
(Goes to the next picture, one of her from behind, overlooking the cliff in the sunset. God, she looks like an angel against the setting sun.)
It's one thing to see her every once in a while, to talk to her on the phone. I have periods in between where I'm not thinking about her as much. Once she transfers, I'll see her almost every day again. I thought that's what I wanted, but now, I'm not so sure.
(Next picture. A shot of her in the driver's seat.)
This has taken a turn for the worst. I know that we could've had something, but it''ll never happen. Not now.
(Another photo, this one of the both of them. She insisted on taking at least one shot together. A pang in his heart so strong that he grabs at his chest. Goes to the next photo, a shot of her alone.)
I've gotta go. It's about time I gave my heart a break. I'll tell her when the time comes to say goodbye.
(Closes photo viewer, closes folder. Open browser and goes to Cal Poly site to sign up for the study abroad program.)
Come on, man up. It's time to move on.
