& the world spins madly on

As of Saturday night, my nomadship with LiNK officially ended. There were times that I was looking so forward to that evening, not because I hated what I did, but because I just wanted reality to start again & have my normal life back. Now, I don't know how I feel. I am excited to get my life back in order, however a part of me feels so empty. I just spent the last three months dedicating everyday to this organization and spreading awareness of the North Korean humanitarian crisis, to now doing what?... looking for a job? sleeping on my mother's couch? being broke? I guess I just need to find my place again. I am grateful because on June 15th I start my new internship with LiNK as the Artist Relations intern. That position will look so different from what I just did. It will only be two days in the office and the rest will be on the side. I am excited for it though.

Don't get me wrong, I am excited to get my life in order and to find my place; it's just not as exciting as I thought it would be. I guess I'll give it more time.

I have been listening to this band called "the weepies" a lot lately [thanks to my girl, Carolyn!] & it is just beautiful, simple music that makes me so happy. I am listening to this song called "Can't go back now" & I love the lyrics.
"In the end the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself"

I love that.

you&me, walk on, walk on, walk on, you can't go back now.

So true. So that is what I will be working on, walking on.
