The first day of my life.

How many years have I claimed were simply on pause until I reached Reed? How many times have I told myself to just hold on until I'm there, until I'm... here.

How many mornings have I claimed that the new day would be different? That "today is the first day of the rest of my life." Well, goodness, it looks like this morning really is.

I move in to my dorm in less than two hours. This is happening... and I can hardly believe it.

Maybe I'll become a born-again idealist... throw off (just a bit of) my sarcastic nihilism and again start to see the world as something I can change.

Closing doors... now.

Opening doors... from here on out.

Hello, new world. How the hell are you.
