Today, it begins
This morning, as my alarm went off just a little too early (though far later than my 6:30 a.m. plan...), I was filled with an incredible sense of promise:
Today, it begins.
I just felt, overwhelmingly, that everything lies ahead of me.
Today, I am able to leave this house where I feel so stifled, just like I did growing up, just like I did throughout high school & during college breaks (my friend Shravan is right: when visiting your childhood home, limit it to a week; that's the longest you can stay without becoming a child again).
Today begins the Fulbright, Sussex; today, I am put back on the path.
