so excited, so excited, so [not] scared.

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." -- From the movie Annie
Less than a week ago I said goodbye (for now) to some of my favorite things: NY, my family (present and future), and my lovable Alphonse. It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I can be an emotional mess at times, and my departure was no exception (I mean you'd cry too if you had to leave this behind). But now, with several days of orientation behind me, any anxiety or farewell sadness I had has dissipated (which is not to say I don't dearly miss the things I left behind). To sum up how I've been feeling lately, I thought, why not share some of the things I've been saying already:

So in a nutshell, I'm really excited about the next year and beyond.

Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing— grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God." -- Joel 2:14
