I've been struggling with not caring about what other people think lately. 

It's difficult to hold your own when you go against the grain. 

But boy, are the happy moments ever worth the pain. 

Quick update right here, I've transitioned away from the intense hours-long morning and afternoon work sessions. I was feeling creatively drained, and noticed that they weren't helping me make high quality articles. 

Switching to creating articles that are shorter in length has forced me to pack even more value in such a small space. I love the challenge. 

The books are going to be released soon, I'm going to be much closer to the young people I love at Western very soon, and I'm totally scared. 

But I'm also totally excited. 

And totally grateful. 

This is my dream.
