Good things happen in July

I like this song, and I feel like singing about "FREEDOM!" for two reasons right now:
  1. Today is my first day being unemployed, i.e. I finish ONE FULL YEAR as an AmeriCorps VISTA as of Friday. Is it weird that I'm okay with that? (though still slightly nervous!)
  2. I want to celebrate the birth of a new nation on July 9, 2011: The Republic of South Sudan!! Check out this wonderful photo essay! And President Obama's statement of recognition for this new state! This is truly a moment for hope.

Here's to wishing the best for Southern Sudan and all of her people... and to hoping I wont be too free for too long (cross your fingers that I'll get a job/make some decisions in the near future!).
