For once in my life spring break is more than something to merely try to live through. For 2014’s four months so far, I have been doing more than just existing. I feel alive, and I have myself and others to thank for that. I have plans. I do not need to please some unknown Approval Matrix that has ruled over me in the past. I know better than to think this feeling will last forever or that all of my problems belong to yesterday, but for now, at least, I do not feel a nagging desire to be sad. I am content.
