Here I am starting a blog. I think it will be a good thing. Right now I am in kind of a transitional phase. I just came back home for a month-long visit, after spending the past year in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. After this, I will be going back to Pine Ridge for the summer. Right now is kind of a bittersweet time. I am really glad to finally spend time with my family and friends and boyfriend, but I know it is only temporary and that another goodbye is just around the corner. I am looking forward to summer time in Pine Ridge, though. In contrast to the bleak endlessness of the winters there, Pine Ridge summers are beautiful. The whole community is out and about a little more and there are thunderstorms like nothing I have ever seen. Also, I am excited about spending more time with some kids that I just couldn't be more crazy about. Plus, I will be staying right in town this time around and be way less busy than last summer. I hope to find that I am much more able to take in everything that is going on around me and make more time for people. For now, I will try to appreciate the time I have in the next couple of weeks to show the people I love the most how important they are to me, so this may be all the writing i do for a little while.
