How happy I am: Very! While the past two weeks prior to this one have been notably bad (may or may not post a whole thing written from that time soon), this one has had an upward slant! I am so close to two of the thing I have been dreaming about for a long time – solo travel through freaking Colombia (jungles! beaches! magic!) and freaking college in California. I feel so lucky that this is the life I get to live.
