I love the 4th of July. For lots of different reasons.
I mean, who doesn't love freedom, right?
And I'm a bi-centennial baby, so I kind of love the whole idea of the birth of our nation- my birth month thing.
dorky dorky, I know.

Then of course, there's the fireworks and the parades and the frickin one day that (most) people aren't hating America. Even the crazy liberal annoying as hell people seem to shut up for the 4th of July. For example, I am very glad that I am not at work on the 4th, with my co-worker who rambles on and on about what a dumb bossy country America is and how white people ruin everything. (really) because I think that it wouldnt have gone over so well today. (I manage to keep a handle on what I want to say to her, for fear of losing my job) (which of course, I quit..so..well anyhow.)

So yeah. :) Most people manage to appreciate their country today.

I like to send a message to my friend Dom in Engand reminding him how much King George was crazy and ha! We don't need you and your taxation without representation anyhow.

I love the 4th of July because its the day that I left, for good, my ex fiance. I mean, this is the weekend I moved out. With the help of my mom and dad, Jen and two other people who worked for my aunt, I pikced up everything that could be moved in one day...and left everything else behind. Several years ago now, but it was a huge thing. It was the real first step in coming back to myself after being lost for seven years.

so yay! Freedom from people who drag you down and make you hate yourself!

I turned in the final draft of my Thesis yesterday too. One more thing to add, one more milestone. And of course, one more "freedom from oppression" moment. (snicker)

I'm starting to see the road ahead. Its interesting! There are might be a few side roads coming up that I didnt expect and that is really exciting.  We'll have to see whether or not this new path opens up. I still don't have a plan, but there is promise ahead and that feels good. Scary to know that after the 17th I won't be working, but good to know that the future is peeking out just a bit.

July is just such a good month. Its summer time and the sun is all shiny. Everyone is out and about. Its hot (in places other than the bay area, but I remember that its hot elsewhere!) Its the 4th of July, its bbqs, its my birthday, its comic con!
