Things are changing again.

I suddenly have a lot more options with regard to grad school. I don't want to move, but I will if I have to. I'm making a list of schools that have good religious studies programs (it's a lot shorter than I would have guessed) and I'll be applying to many of them. Not all of them are in the United States.

This is the first time in my (lengthy) college career that I've had professors express any real interest in me. I've had two insist on writing letters for me, without any prompting. At W&M I couldn't get any - I was that mediocre. I'm starting to look for something worthwhile to do this summer to boost my cv. I'm updating my passport in case that something involves an airplane and a foreign country.

My band, Ghostdance, has its first show tomorrow and two more booked in January. I think we're actually pretty good, especially considering my depression and total lack of commitment to anything other than school.

Kim just bought a new tent in preparation for FSG. This year is going to be better than last because we're going to bring actual food and I'm not going to bring my phone. I won't be taking the anxiety with me. And I've got something important to offer to the fire this year.

I'm going to Michigan right after Christmas and I can't wait. Going to stay with my aunt feels like the closest thing I have to going home anymore since my parents moved. I don't think I even know anyone in DC anymore.

All things considered, I think life could actually be good for now. There are a lot of mistakes I won't be making again. I've learned a lot about myself in the last several years and I feel like I'm finally getting to move forward.
