Independence Day or Independent Me?
It's the fourth of July. Some are reenacting the signing of the declaration, some are working, most are relaxing with family while feasting on grilled food, some are reeling about the inequalities and injustices of America. I am spending this day alone. Don't cry for me Argentina, this is my first taste of independent living. My parents and little sis are headed out of town. This leaves me here because I have to be adult and work. This is fine. This gives me time to myself. I have not been by myself on a holiday ever. Granted I am still young so there are plenty of lonely holidays to be had. So far so good though. I plan on watching tv, listening to loud music most of the day and then going to hang out with some friends before work beckons me in the morn. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't going to miss my fam but coming from a large family, there are few times being at home when silence is abundant. I am going to relish this time. So my INDEPENDENCE is being celebrated by me becoming a bit more independent and self reliant. Happy Bday America.
