One day, I went to sleep worried about my grad class the next day, because I was already behind and still had some homework to do without a lot of time to do it. When I woke up the next day, class mattered a lot less.
I wish I could say I've learned something profound about life in the year since. I have learned that I'm surrounded by the best people on the planet (although I suspected that already).
No, instead I've taken refuge in the Next to Normal soundtrack, which I've made my life anthem. (Usual warning about this being a very sweary musical and you not blaming me if you choose to listen anyway.) Today's post title is from "I've Been," which also includes maybe the profound truth I've had plenty of time to think over: "I've never had to face the world without her by my side."
I have faced the world a bit, as much as I can, as much as I can see of it over that aforementioned amazing group of people. It's a much less fun place than it was a year and a day ago.
