I’m done. I survived my first semester BACK at school after a year of tear, hospitalizations, and travel. I did it. It feels so good to have accomplished something that so many told me may be impossible.  Even better, the fact that I’m alive and was able to do them.  After next semester, I’ll be two years away from my masters.  That’s not exactly where I wanted to be, but considering the circumstances, I’m so happy.

I mentioned a couple of blog posts ago about my project of queering suicide.  I will post the link to my Prezi at the end of this post.  It may not have a lot of explanation behind it but I think it contains enough info to get the point.  There’s also a pretty rad video in there.

I haven’t heard anything about my friend yet today. I normally don’t get a call until later though.  Last I heard was around 11p last night. He was still on life support. During the day at some point his heart rate slowed to an incredibly unhealthy rate. They were able to stableize it again, thankfully.  Thanks for your continued prayers. I don’t know what I will do if I lose him.

Tonight I got to perform my award winning monologue, “I Used to Think”. For those of you who remember, this is the same monologue I did for the forensics competition in 8th grade.  I ended up winning second place.  The prize was a pair of fuzzy socks. I was super satisfied. I can hardly believe I won anything, though, because everyone was so talented.

It’s now time for Christmas Break.  This break will be filled with sleep, music, reading, friends, and rock climbing.  I’ll get to see my brother and his fiancé, as well.  

Thanks for everyone who has walked with me this semester, I could not have done it without you. 

Here is the link to my Prezi:
