I know everyone back east will laugh but seriously, California people are so happy for a little rain. I seriously saw people out dancing in it all the way home and now I’m out back playing with my roommate’s dog in it.

I had to share. I’m deliriously happy right now. I’m gonna get drenched and go inside and play piano.

I’m 24.
Not much has changed.
Well, maybe just a little.

In the past year I was thrown out on the street, lost many people in my life, and had to start my life again with almost nothing. I didn’t choose that path, but instead held my head up and accepted it.

But, today I’m better than I was and I will continue to move forward. I love where my life is now, I love the people in my life, and I love who I am today after deciding almost a full year ago that enough was enough. I’m stronger, happier, and healthier than I have been in almost five years.

All I can say is I’m looking forward to the days ahead and I’m anxious to see what the future holds now.
