People will tell you where they've gone,
they'll tell you where to go,
but until you get there yourself,
you never really know.
-Joni Mitchell "Amelia"

If there was a better way to go then it would find me,
I can't help it, the road just rolls out behind me,
be kind to me, or treat me mean,
I'll make the most of it, I'm an extraordinary machine.
Fiona Apple "Extraordinary Machine"

I never know what to put in these little boxes.

Put simply, I am a broken, messed up person forever in need of grace. I feel as if I'm in the in-between of life; engaged, graduate student, forever searching for my purpose in life. I have hopes, fears, stories, passions and memories that make up who I am becoming. Come in and see for yourself. I have had this journal for a long time, but have recently gone in and privatized a lot of old entries. I want to keep them for myself, but I want people to know me as I am now, not the person I once was. I'm always happy to answer any questions and love being open, but a window into my previously defeated soul serves no purpose for good in this world.
If you wish to friend me, I welcome it. All I ask is that you please comment so that I know, and may return the favor.
