You see, I've had this obsession for a while now.
My cousin, Taber exposed me to it when she did it ten years ago.
Ever since then, it has been a dream of mine to do it one day.
Then, five years ago, my sister, Kristin did it as well.
Ever since, I KNEW that I was going to do it one day.
Nine months ago, I started preparations for it.
And now,
In exactly ten days,
I will experience what I have fanticized about for the past ten years...
I will be spending my graduating semester of college
circumnavigating the globe on... 
 
Semester at Sea

I feel a current, 
Flowing within me,
Growing too palpable to ignore...
Change:
Uncomfortable and strange,
Yet curiously thrilling.

The part of myself
That is holding me down,
Retreating back towards the familiar,
Clutching tight to the ground,
Is loosening its grip...
...Slowly...
Joining the rest of me,
Into the Unknown.

I am approaching readiness in the eye of the storm... 
The Current within me grows stronger,
With the tidal wave of Catharsis hovering over me, 
Creating a Loud looming pause....

I am watching... listening...

...breathing...

Anxiously awaiting... 

The... inevitable...
 
CRASH!!!

Causing the upheaval of my core  
To be carried by 
The waves....
 
While surrendering to the watery abyss will surely be...
Treacherous,
Terrifying, 
and
Traumatizing...

  
To say the least, 
 
I am more... 
 
CURIOUS.

 
To SEE
Where I will surface,
To DISCOVER
What new place I will
(eventually)
Touch my feet to the ground, 
Once again.

Feel the current:
Join me in my journey 
Through the waves....
