"Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what’s to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been, and look ahead of what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. The thing is, we didn’t have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves for growing up.”

The Wonder Years

i've been having these weird revelations about life lately. i seem to be spending a bundle of my time thinking and realizing i'm growing up, reflecting on the past five years of my life, and dreaming about the future. in all of this, i have come to the conclusion that i am happy.

and maybe it is that i always expected to have some grandious plan by the time i found myself at graduation day, but i'm here and i smile to be in athens and surrounded by opportunities and lovely people.

my world has been filled
with papers
and lists
and coffee cups
and books
and alarm clocks
and groggy eyes

the time is crunch.
a pending graduation and a beautiful spring have arrived.

april is showing off in this time of research and being handcuffed to my computer.

but i can't even be mad.

because life has become beautiful again.
i have accepted responsibility for the hole that i am in with school. i have also accepted the 22 days that are between me and freedom. knowing that whatever happens, that day will come.
there is no need to overreact (see photo).
