I sat down with a clinical advisor this afternoon — she approved of and was excited about both of the options I laid on the table for January. It is a unique and ultra positive feeling to know that I have my school’s support.
I don’t know where, yet, but it looks like I’m going places, and the prospect is amazing; the urge to run has shaken me down in the past few days, upon reflection and reminiscing about the hills I climbed and sights I saw many months ago.
At this juncture, I find Milan Kundera’s immortal words ever more meaningful: “The worst thing isn’t that the world isn’t free, but that people have unlearned their freedom.”
I think that since 2005, I have slowly unlearned my freedom. This is truly the time to relearn it.
