We fell asleep as lovers do, listening to the raindrops pitter-patter on the old tin roof, hands entwined and souls secretly smiling.

Today has been a strange day. I’ve become accustomed to celebrating my birthday at summer camps, marking the passing of the years with people I barely know. It’s always seemed kind of appropriate: usher in the new year with new people and the new possibilities and relationships and challenges and discoveries that they bring.

This year, though, I have been at my parents’ home for the first time in over half a decade. Nerves are frayed, relationships do not run smoothly in this house. I am trying to remain upbeat - I spoke to my best friend on Skype, yesterday I spoke to my boyfriend. I start at summer camp on Saturday. But right now I am homesick, I feel run down, tired and drained.

Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.

Today is my twenty-sixth birthday. I am thankful for a year of adventures, growth and love, and I look forward to a year of travels, creativity and shared laughter.

When we love ourselves, we naturally shine, we are naturally beautiful. And that draws others to us. Before we know it, they’re loving us and it’s up to us to choose who to share our love with.

"You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfume and wear them like hats upon your crazy heads. May you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." -Ray Bradbury

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

“A lot of the time it feels like… music is some sort of excuse to be a human. It’s kind of like people need that excuse to go and put their arms in the air and sing their hearts out.”
