Um, Whoa

I haven't felt like this in a long while.
And I don't even know quite what it is.
There are a few theories rattling around in my head: I just finished reading a good (albeit confusing) story and am on a high from that; it's been a year since I was nervous to start college and I guess I miss the anticipation; I go back to college in a month and I'm looking forward to seeing everybody; I go back to college in a month and I'm excited for all the new chances this year will bring; I go back to college in a month and that means I'll get to dance again...
I'll admit, there's a lot of options for the stirring in my stomach.
But, honestly, it makes me feel like everything's gonna be all right. I know that I have a lot to figure out and a lot of big decisions to make. I know that it's a big scary world out there and I'm not long off from being thrown to the dogs that run it but...I dunno, being on edge tends to keep me on my game. Maybe this can all work out.
Maybe it's possible that I'll take the right steps down the right path, that the right people will step up to the challenge of walking with me. Maybe it's possible that all of my dreams can come true. Maybe it's possible that I haven't even begun to grasp the things I'm capable of doing.
I know that I have a lot of work to do.
But I think I can do it.
