I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time.
June 30 was my escape plan. Then, my bittersweet goodbye. It was the source of my anxiety and, the day I would have to make a hard choice. And lastly, it was the day that was chosen for me, given to me.
This day is my gateway. To what? I’m not so sure.
But it’s here. It’s finally here. And I am standing in the doorway squinting, looking forward, trying to see what’s on the other side.
Have you ever waited for one day so long?
I am not disappointed. I’m not dissatisfied.
I made it. I am here. I feel accomplished.
And finally this day that has been hanging over my head for the last year, will float past me like all the others.
This day that held my end and my beginning.
Here it is.
And here it goes.
In one hour and 21 minutes, it will be July. And where will I be?
