This time last year....

I came close to losing my mind. I was amidst the stress of applying for jobs, interviewing for jobs, deciding if I wanted to stay in Maryland or completely uproot myself elsewhere (for a job).

Everything worked out in the end, duh. But it took a few hellish months and a couple of panic attacks (a new thing for me) to get through it.

Anyways, as I was saying, amidst of all of this, my little brother was a senior at Virginia Tech. I remember being at the middle school (for internship- I'll never go back to middle school) and watching everything unfold on the television in the guidance office. I freaked out, I called my family and I think that I eventually left early.

Fortunately, my brother was about a mile away in his apartment at the time. However, my heart goes out to the loved ones of the students who's lives were lost in this terrible tragedy.

My brother's graduation only one month letter was similarly terrifying. The families who lost a loved one were all at the graduation, and the ceremony was heartbreaking. I'm still thinking of you all, one year later.
