Music:I am a Man of Constant Sorrow - Soggy Bottomed Boys
So I finally put up some posters, yay, which I guess means I've finally settled in. Which is true. The past week I've felt so completely happy here. Of course I miss people, but it seems rather secondary to the amazing place I'm in. It's the feeling I've been striving to have since I got here. It's amazing, really. I'm completely at peace with myself; I feel complete in my own body, and everything is beautiful and every experience is pleasure at it's utmost. Not only that, but I absolutely LOVE the food my señora makes. I don't even mind walking 20 minutes home and 20 minutes back to the university just so I can get a big hot lunch from her :D
It's interesting to me that I've become so happy here so quickly as opposed to the year it took me to feel comfortable at Northwestern. I don't know if it's because I have a family-like environment here, or what. At any rate, I like it. I awoke this morning to rain pounding on my window and lightning, and I wondered what it would be like if I just stayed here all year. And as ashamed as I am to say it, because I know I'd miss BLAST and all that, I wished I could.
This is what it feels like to come somewhere and to really start anew. This is what it feels like to be carefree.
