Kingston as a Fam
It’s not often you feel really, truly happy in it’s purest form but as I sit here at 1:27 AM in this hotel room with my family, I can say I do. Yesterday I was reminded of how much I’m loved by everyone from Trent IDST who accepts me for exactly who I am. It was my fake graduation and nobody was surprised! So much warmth, and plus the Trent IDST crew shares the same enthusiasm in the same things, which is fantastic and rare and wonderful. My friends at Trent just get the way my brain works. Then, my parents reminded me of how lucky I am to have them in my life. They were proud of me, and that felt good. I went to coffee with someone and I just feel so true to myself, so unashamedly myself, and that’s a great feeling. I spent the afternoon and evening with the whole family, and we watched my dad get excited about ducks. I wrote a long message to someone from high school, making myself 3000% more vulnerable than I ever had to, but life is too short to ask about what-ifs. I’m on the road to learning my French again, the doors to the world’s opportunities are open, and I feel beyond grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had to get here. I get to see Camille graduate tomorrow, I saw Michele graduate on Monday, and I’m just lucky—so lucky—to have sisters who I’m so close with. I had a fantastic day, and I didn’t realize it until I closed my eyes.
