I don't have a lot to say in this post, but I've been wanting to write something in particular here that has been itching in my head for a while:
I am happy.
Which is to say, in the last six years, most of these posts were written either about or in the context of urban isolation, anxiety, and severe depression, all while trying to figure out who I am and what is it that I ought to be doing with myself.
And, it is marvelous to me to look back on all I've been through in the last six years, and now see myself surrounded by close friends, madly in love with someone, able to really genuinely love myself, and am in a career that satisfies a lifelong dream. I feel so tremendously well supported by everyone in my life now and I feel like I am really finally thriving.
I am nervous and excited for the future, another novel feeling. And, I hope it stays :)
With that said, as my life has changed so much in the last six years, I feel it is appropriate that this post should conclude Open Mic Night. I will be starting another chapter soon.
Thank you for reading <3
