…it almost breaks my heart.
Is that a shame?
She’s at school. She’s auditioning for all her favorite things — choir, the play Legally Blonde that she got a callback for, her judicial board job has started, her roommate had a birthday. Her room is starting to smell because no one has time to wash clothes, are you kidding?
I have seen her down the dark hole of depression and she called me today with a litany of possibilities for this year — including her follow up on a new job for next summer — she said she was circling a tree on campus as she talked to me because she had so much energy to expend.
It chokes me up. Really.
She’s a good girl who stepped in some smelly shit the past few years. I’m so happy she’s happy. I hope shell be happy tomorrow. I hope if things don’t work out she can take it in stride.
Around that tree.
