Congratulations rt1ky and femme. It's so satisfying to have a job well done behind you.
I have been accepted in college and hope to finish up my bachelor's degree in the next couple years. I am so excited (except for the financial aid paperwork that is going make me go bald by pulling out my hair).
I've made some other decisions in my life recently that have enabled me to let go of old, hurtful relationships and start a new, fresh phase of my life. I feel 18 again, with the entire world stretching out before me and all the toxic crap that was holding me back gone. I swear I feel like I've lost a lot more weight by getting all the negative people and negative stuff out of my life. A huge weight has lifted off my shoulders. I feel like I could soar like a bird now.
