holy crap

guys. i'm DONE!!!

it is 12:57 am. i just finished my last assignment for the semester. the semester that almost killed me, yes, but taught me oh-so-much-more than just book-larnin.

i have a month off.

what the hell am i going to do?

ONE WHOLE FREAKING MONTH. weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!

you know what was weird right before i sat myself down for the final. bloody. time. to write this thing, i found a tiny, paper flower on my desk by the keyboard.

now, i don't do tiny paper flowers. i have NO idea how this tiny paper flower got to be in my apartment in the first place, let alone how it magically appeared on my desk, by my hand.

it looks like a chamomile flower. and because i'm a google-freak, i googled chamomile symbolism. apparently, it means wisdom, luck, and longevity. COOL.

i love everybody right now. i feel like i just won a war with one of the most uncomfortable parts of myself - the part that is afraid to succeed.

YES!!! my love...no more fear in succeeding :)

Congratulations on tucking one more semester under your belt. I'm so proud and happy for you, bee! :) Give yourself plenty of pats on the back, you worked hard, and it shows. Be proud, turn the music up loud and dance in the middle of the room.

You deserve a treat...one is on the way ;-)

loving you extra,

Hurrah, congratulations B!

I say this event deserves a celebratory drink...or seven, if you're so inclined.

Your accomplishment this semester speaks volumes to your strength, commitment, and sheer tenacity. Don't forget that.

Sippins with you in spirit,

your cosmic twin.
