Today was the first day of my senior year. I feel weird just writing it. I can’t have been four years since I decorated my first dorm room and now I have my first single!
My college years have been a bit rocky. Both my parents lost their jobs, my best friend went crazy (not exaggerating), rooming with friends turned out to be an awful idea, a close relative died, and I developed a case of anxiety so bad that I am feeling crippling “aftershocks.”
But I’ve also lived in Europe, gone on my first real date, had a handful of hysterical nights with my friends, got my first (and second!) job, and, oh yeah, became a Witch.
So it’s not been all bad.
I did a reading with an oracle deck and they were lovely, positive cards. In spite of my anxieties, I carry hope with me for the first time in a long time.
