“An Echo of the Past in the Future”

I’ve been up all night, unable to sleep thanks to a not-unpleasant, roaming anxiety that’s felt awfully familiar. It took me awhile to recognize the feeling: it’s that wide-awake anticipation I used to feel when I was a little kid the night before the first day of school.

Kinda cute, right?

My bags are mostly packed and I’ve said most of my goodbyes. I’m going to watch Muppet movies until a decent hour (I luxury I never had as a kid; I had to stay IN BED), and I think I’ll be pretty¬†psychologically ready to get on that plane tonight.


I really dig elsa’s¬† “mid-year resolutions” for incoming corps members, and think I could definitely benefit from adopting them myself, particularly numbers 1 and 3. Here’s hoping!

    If you’re going to watch Muppet movies, you HAVE to watch a Muppet Christmas Carol. At least.
