Today, that 4th grade dream became a reality. I haven't had a chance to really feel it yet, in between the dumb non-stop phonecalls and errands that involve running up and down four stories worth of stairs.
But when I have a moment tonight to realize what has happened... I'm an author. I didn't wait for anyone to give me permission. I decided I believed in myself enough to do this. So I did it.
It's a reality that no one can take away from me. The end.
