starting Monday i begin what feels like the longest awaited new chapter of my life i’ve ever had. Somehow the last 3 years feel melted in to one long, strange, journey, that has brought me here.
going for my graduate degree
leaving my current job finally, for good
making a new life with the love of my life
it’s hard to believe it’s all happening sometimes—i keep wondering who’s life this is that i’ve stumbled upon. And then i look to my left and see my love’s smiling face, I look to the right and see my friends and family cheering me on, and I look ahead and see more happiness coming my way.
Happiness is right here.
