Well, I haven't updated since I made it to Seattle, so here's one for you.

I've been here for 12 days, and I am having the absolute time of my life. I am 100% content, by far the happiest I've been in most of my life. It doesn't register with me often, but I get elated with I realized where I am and what I'm doing.

Tonight, I actually attended the Margot & The Nuclear So & Sos concert at The Crocodile, and that's when it sank in. There I was, surrounded by complete strangers, and I was having a blast. I didn't know anybody, and I loved it. I was dancing by myself, and I loved it. I was listening to fantastic music. I walked outside and saw the monorail pass by. I just...I'm so blown away at the result of my decision. I am in love with this town.

I adore sitting in my living room and looking out at the Space Needle. As cliche as it may be to live next to it, it serves as a great reminder of how I've "made it." I'm young, I'm free, and I'm living it up to the fullest right now.

I sometimes struggle very briefly in the morning when I wake up to another day alone in a place I'm not quite familiar with, but it passes rather quickly. I've met some good people so far, and look forward to making some good friendships here. I'd love to meet someone to date, too, but I won't focus on that. I'll let that happen on its own.

I guess I just wanted to ramble about how great I feel. Don't get me wrong, I miss all of you back in Texas, but I wouldn't take back the move for anything. It won't always be this good, and I will want to fold and come home, but right now...right now, it's perfect.

I beg of you that if you're considering doing something like this for yourself, just do it. You're only young once. Do it while you can. Get out. Go see the world. Go live.

God, I'm so happy.
