Day 20 - The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades

Just sent mum off at the airport.
I'm so glad she came and saw the place where I stay and met the people I hang out with.

Last night I was so afraid to be alone (well not alone, but without anyone from home) again but today I realised that everthing would be fine.
For the first time I feel freedom and independence while maintaining a lot of common sense and knowing when to humbly admit that there are times when I shouldn't be alone or that I shouldn't be afraid to ask for help.

I've learnt more in these past few weeks than I have in my whole life.
And I feel like I'm ready to deal with whatever life throws at me.
Of course, with a little help from my friends and the grace of God.

Met some important people last night.
More details when things are confirmed.
