Well School is done and it's safe to say that I've achieved more in the last few months than I have in the last few years. I'm finally doing things for me and it feels absolutely amazing. My grades are good, I'm getting the hang of my new (and very adult) job, and I have so many exciting and awesome plans for this summer that I can barely sit still. Bonnaroo is only a few weeks away and if I can stay committed to my goals, I can weigh less by the time I leave for Tennessee than I did this time last year, and once I prove to myself that what I'm doing now is more important than what I did last year, there's nothing stopping me.
Graduation, a clean slate, Tabula Rasa, washing away the last three years of debauchery, disappointment, and heartache. I don't know what comes next for me beyond walking across that stage, but I know that whatever is on the other side will be better, and brighter than where I've been. I went to the abyss, almost threw myself into the endless darkness of the world I'd created, the world that fed into all my bad habits and self-drepreciation. But I'm not that person anymore. I've found my back back to my path, to my purpose, and nothing will stop me.
But before I step both feet on that path...I've got the summer of a lifetime ahead of me. :) Goodbye cruel world, hello fun, sun, and a whole new world.
