I said I was just getting started.

I meant it.

I drew my line in the sand.

And, so, forward.

I stood in line at the post office. Shaking. Tears welling in my eyes. There is no going back from this moment. There is no going back from any moment. But, this moment will resonate. This moment will linger. The consequences of right now will stretch eternally.

I hand the package to the person behind the counter. I answer questions. I pay the fee. I watch the package to my father, containing two letters and two gifts be processed and set to the side.

The drive back to school is a whirlwind of emotions.

Today, I said goodbye to my apartment. After weeks of fighting with them over a payment error with their system and too much money later, I am tired of their abuse and am ready to move on.

Today, I threw down the gauntlet, knowing there was no going back. But, I am prepared. I am ready. This is worth it. My life is worth it.

Two letters and two gifts.

The line is in the sand.

And, so, forward.
