"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." When life keeps handing you lemons, it's only a matter of time before it hands you some sugar too, and then you'll have all the ingredients you need. It's incredibly corny and cliche, but it's true.
God has completely turned my life around this month. Speech and debate has been amazing. I've met some of the coolest people, and I'm really stoked to spend more time with them this year. Not to mention I'm having a blast with TP. I'm still an LDer at heart, but this has been an awesome experience so far. I have a great debate partner, great competition, and a great resolution.
Not to mention two additional fantastic opportunities. Planning an awesome road trip with my buddy Noah and going to see my favorite band in concert was something I could only dream about last month. Now it's happening. It's going to be the experience of a lifetime. Also, I get to go to California to check out some colleges after the next tournament. I guess all those college application essays were worth it after all.:D
Well, I've got no more time for pain or self-pity. It's time to life my life. I've got nothing to complain about anymore. 2013 is off to a super start.
