2 weeks of loneliness, overwhelming amounts of work, lack of purpose at internship and in general...I'm tired, worn out by treading water and trying to stay afloat.

Realized that perhaps what I needed was connection.

Hug someone, hear someone, talk to someone - about more than class, the weather, and sports - heart pouring and sharing, mending, and breaking but a togetherness that is casual, critical, and glorifying, uplifting, refreshing, and joy-restoring.

A connection makes a circuit whole - the electricity can move and I can do this, I can swim I can float I can make purpose, find purpose, and be purposeful because I am not alone.

blank notebooks. crisp college-ruled pages, new pens - the smell of old classrooms at UConn.
