A short survey for Hubskiers

1) How many books do you have within arms reach at this exact moment? (You can lean over to grab it, but you can't leave your seat)

2) If you could choose an animal familiar, what would it be?

3) True or False - Rocky IV is the quintessential American Cold War Film.

Life

There's a lot going on right now and I feel pretty overwhelmed. I have a job offer that I may or may not take. I'm still trying to figure out how to swing going to college this fall. I've made some new friends recently, one of which is a really cool person who is so much like me in a lot of ways it's pretty amazing and I've also reconnected with some friends I literally haven't seen for months. They're the kind of friends where everyone says "We need to have dinner soon!" and everyone says it with earnesty and enthusiasm, which is amazing.

Spring is finally here and with it comes the sense that literally anything in life is possible. Every year around this time I tell myself "THIS IS GONNA BE MY YEAR" and every year it ends up not being my year, at least not in the way I expect. But whenever I look back, for all the ways I feel like I came up short, I can name just as many ways I grew. I feel genuinely lucky that I'm able to recognize that, because it keeps me going. So once again, I can feel it. This is gonna be my year.
