I'm reclaiming myself.
No more of this. No more being afraid of anything. It's mine.
I am happy if you aren't. I am grateful for everything. I will do what I need to do in this life, idealist or not. Later tonight, I meet the rep from the Peace Corps. I will ask him all of my questions, and we'll see how soon I can sign up. I'm dropping a class and will be studying again for the LSAT.
May 25 I'll be in Denver for Millencolin. Hahahahah. :-)
Maybe going to SIU was detrimental at first, but I kept myself in the face of adversity. I stayed true to myself, and even in doubt, found myself at a better place.
I don't think my trial by fire is yet over, but I am stronger every single day.
