Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words
That you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten, yeah


Love, love, love this song and absolutely love, love, love the lyrics even more! Chose it cuz it pretty much sums up where I am now and where I'm headed. The past couple of months have been tumultuous, to say the least. And I am more than ready and eager to shake off the baggage that is now the past and start something new, something fresh. It has often been said, from adversity comes greatness....and when better to start this highly renowned path to greatness than now? After all, there is no day but today, n'est pas?

And how fitting is it that in three days, I'll be shipped out of the good ol'  T Dot to the Czech Republic, a completely foreign country with complete strangers? Perfect setting to start, if you ask me. My first time away from home, family, friends, and basically everything I know. So I say, out with the familiar and into the unknown! It's exciting and terrifying all at the same time...can't help but think of all the new people I'll meet and the places I'll see. Oh, the places I'll go!

And so as my big brother once advised (and yes Po, you got a shout on my first post...Waddup!), you gotta dive into the deep end and make a BIG, BIG SPLASH. So I'm off to the deep end...hope you're all ready to get soaked!
