I'm feeling pretty good right now. In ways I never could have expected or anticipated, the New Year has welcomed me with open arms. I've got a bunch of creative projects in the works, a heart that's the lightest it's been in ages, and one semester before I dive face-first into adulthood and test out this education I've spent all these years accumulating (in that vein, I recently learned how to use a semi-colon properly, craziness). Both graduation and Great Britain are growing ever-closer, and I'm doing my best right now to take things a step at a time. I'm doing my best not to hold myself back, to live without fear in a world that markets caution like it's all that can save us. I'm trying to let go of anger, which is proving far more difficult than I could have imagined. I want to be a better writer, son, brother, partner, performer, student, and leader, but becoming better requires sacrifice. It requires work.
It requires love.
