Today I celebrated my 4 year birthday!
4 years ago I was laying in a hospital bed, with stitches in my chest,
paralyzed on my left side, unable to walk by myself. Today a couple of my new friends brought me some flowers, some of my old friend took me out to lunch in the Pearl District and then out to Cupcakes. It was a great day.
After my surgery I had a new sense of urgency. A sense that what I did and when I did it really mattered, that I had to do things, see things, and meet people. I had a sense that I had something to do, I just wasn't sure what. I spent a couple of years struggling, wondering, even envying Spencer for finding his niche and being able to go after it. Well this fall I found mine. And happiness hit me like a train on the track. Lyrics from "Dog Days are over" from Florence and the Machine.
I love the fall, I have been enjoying every moment of this beautiful month.
It feels good to be happy again.
Flowers from my new Friends, and a new necklace from Spence

By the way, I think I am going to pursue a Masters degree! Sounds crazy, I know especially when if,you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I don't know where a comma goes in sentence and I have a tenuous grasp on the English language in general.
