I started posting in live journal at 15. I am now 27. In twelve years my world has certainly changed. I am expecting my first child any day now and the joy he has already brought me I can not even begin to express. I have found an amazing travel companion and we have been married almost two years. I have a college degree and a good job and a cozy place to call home. I am so grateful that my life took this path. How wonderful it is to be present, to be happy and to be alive.

The transition of a working stiff to a student was not at all challenging, the transition from a student back to a working stiff has presented itself with some challenges. I just find it so disheartening that I have worked so hard for a degree that is utterly useless, I am now just very over qualified for the job I had before I went back to school. I wonder if all children of my generation struggle with the same sense of disillusion, or if they have settled into lives of mediocrity,failure and debt far better than I ever could.

After a long and seemingly endless progression of educational endeavors, I find that in a week I will be a college graduate. It honestly seems like it was just yesterday that I decided to move up here to focus on completing the degree that would ultimately take me six years to finish, but that choice was the best choice I have made to this date. That one decision set off an amazing series of events that has led me to the place that I am today, I will admit that monetarily I do not have much but there is not a day that goes by that I don't wake up and feel satisfied and grateful for the bit of earth that I call home. I do not know what awaits me after I grasp that diploma, but that really doesn't matter, what matters is that I stay open to any path that the universe sets to take me on, after all forcing myself towards a destination I am not suited for, is just swimming against the current. I think of all the years that have passed by me while I searched for myself, I think that it took up until this point to realize I was capable of doing anything that I wanted to do and that realization came from finding my peace in this world. Along with my graduation from college, I will be a married woman in just one short month and that by far is something that I find to be perplexing, if only because I never thought I would get married. It seemed however that it was just because I had not found him yet, I had just bided my time with men who both inspired me and drained me, men who made me weak and then in return make me strong. I am grateful to have found Rich, the only true sense of home I've ever felt profoundly. To me being bound to him for life feels natural, like I have been tied to him since birth. I am proud of myself in this moment, proud of how hard I have had to work and proud for what it has produced. I am entirely grateful to all the spirits that be for this journey.

I am twenty-five, recently engaged, six months from away from being a college graduate. There are no words to describe how thankful I am. There are such great things at work in an existence we but barely understand, so all that I can do is reflect on just how beautiful this life is, or for how fortunate I am to have a loving family, to be marrying into a loving family, to have a future husband who no only accepts all my little quirks and hang ups but who understands them, to have a few amazing friends, a fat red dog and a modest roof covering my head. I have learned through great trial that it is much easier to go with the current than to fight against it. All I am is humbled at the divinity I see in simple things everyday, how lucky are we to be here, to see and feel and taste and love, even if it is only for but a brief second in the eyes of the Great Unknown.

My brother turns 20 on Friday
and it breaks my heart
because once this little boy was my best friend
and now he is a stranger
and growing made this happen
All I have now is Atlanta
to remind me that he and I
have the same spirit
He is the only person
I ever think understood
what it was to be family

I move to Saint Augustine in 8 weeks.
Things these days just seem easier.
Its just the process of stopping the urge to fight everything little change in life.
I am begining to travel
I have a book plan in the works
I love the man I found in this journey.
I love our sober life
I cant wait until tomorrow, first time in my life, that I can say that.

Its fathers day now ten months in.. time is slowing down.. and this is everything.. In all this I found that you made me into something.. something real.. and however selfish, angry and damaged you are you are still it..I want a life with you.. I surrender.. its all I can do.. because when you know, you know.. there is no looking back.

This is a new year.. I am afraid of this economy.. I have faith in people and love again.. Trying to keep my head above water in this fiscal reality.. trying to maintain a job.. focusing more so on what God has given me.. and how grateful I am for that.

Almost two months.. well I'm suprised for both of us.. Having you was like being blind and having sight for only a breif moment..it has made me more bitter about the possibility of happiness.. I dont understand.. maybe I never will.. Why God places people so perfectly and why we choose to walk away...

I am your passenger.. but you barely know.. that I am here right beside you on every turn.. on every road..time like highway keeps going on and on.. and it brings me closer to you..
