Empowered by the word no and my life and where I am going. This is a good feeling that I could get used to. I can finally say confidently that I am growing up and not down. I think the last year has been worth it.
I couldn't be any more ready for the summertime. Only a final 5 week stretch and then I'm home free. At least for 4 months. I feel peaceful. This feeling is long overdue and hopefully something that sticks.
I've been revisiting Augustana and Laura Veirs (July Flame) and it is good.
