When you have been working hard for thirteen month straight, it is great to get away and relax. I took the last two weeks to go back and visit all of my friends in the places I have lived over the past 4 years. I could tell you what I did, but most of the people reading this journal saw me on my own personal version of "This Was My Life."

In the end, all I wanted to do is relax, and I was able to do just that.

I am now very prepared to face the final 14 hour drive to Houston.
