So, Dear Public, I'm Here to Confess That I'm The One Who Freed Us From This Mess

I want to give a big thank you and hugs to anyone whose been supportive in the past few days. Emily, Skylar, and Matt, Harvard, Alisa, Jessica, Sara, Peter, my parents. And anyone else I might have overlooked.

I know I am strong and will get through this. In fact, Ben kind of hit the nail on the head when he said there was a slight twinge of relief in my voice, because I certainly didn't want to be stuck here forever (i.e. until grad school). To be completely honest, I'd been flirting with the idea of looking for another job anyway, and was probably about a month away from actually doing it, and really, what's a month? I'll tell you what a month is. It's the difference between me being non-committal, and me being a victim of circumstance, and you know what? I'll take it.

I am a little excited, to tell the truth. A lot scared, but a little excited about the possibilities.

I also think I've made some headway on the grad school decision. Houston isn't lookin' so bad anymore...And maybe St. Louis wouldn't be so scary this time around. You know? It's nice to have options sometimes.

You know what's close to Houston (relatively speaking)? Fort Worth! You know what's close to St. Louis (relatively speaking)? Where my parents now live! Either way, it sounds like an awesome possibility.

Thanks for the fun night we had and I hope you enjoyed the card!
