Letting go and moving on

Over the last few weeks there hasn't been much blogging at all. There has been knitting, and a blue ton of spinning but that's not the important things that have been going on.

The last week and a half I've been pretty sick, sicker than I've been in a long time, so that kills the impulse to do anything at all. It was the sort of thing where I avoided effort so strenuous as say... sitting up.

I have however been growing emotionally and spiritually in spite of this. Last week I had an opportunity to share my life story, and essentially my confessions with the Youth group I have been attending and working with. That experience, while being terrifying and revealing in many ways, was a wonderful one and I think it helped with openness in the relationship I'm in the process of beginning. That relationship is very new yet, but it feels like a natural progression of the wonderful friendship that was there before. Within it I've found the ability to truly move on from old heartbreaks and pains and things that just weeks ago would have left old scars aching aren't even phasing me at all. I feel whole in ways that I haven't been in years.

On friday I move back onto campus. I'm nervous about driving there all by myself but looking forward to seeing my friends and the people who became my family last year. It also means that for the first time in a long time I won't be in a long distance relationship. That will take some getting used to. This will be a good semester though and my last one before I am a senior.
