The skies are clearing and the sun is back to stay, to light my way. But, the forecast is a train wreck and cloudy skies for you. While I make things right, you can only run and tell, how I only did you wrong. I hear what they say, and I know you do, too. It’s time to stop playing the victim and move on, too. “I’ll love you forever” didn’t last that long. But I don’t care, I’m standing strong. I’m taking this chance to say, I’m happy where I am. We’ve been given the same chance. Just with different plans. I’m gonna sing and dance and pull myself off the shelf. You’re gonna run your mouth and stand on the sidelines felling sorry for yourself.

So far this week things have been going pretty well for me and I feel I have become closer and closer to everyone here every day. Also I’m pretty excited for everything that’s going to be happening tomorrow (FLASH MOB!!!) 

“God bless the broken road that led me straight to you.” – that song has been in my head.

I thought that the workshop we did today was helpful and fun. I liked doing the role – play. Also, I love doing the Party Rock dance, it makes me excited for tomorrow!! FLASH MOB DAY!!!! I love coming to work every day because it’s just really fun and feels like a second home to me, and everyone is so nice to each other and we all get along! Vanessa is one of my best friends here and I love being able to talk to her, she’s really nice.

I’m so happy to be here!

When I get up every day to come here, it’s just awesome. They say everything happens for a reason and I know why I am here. I know why God brought me here. It’s amazing to get to know my friends, dance, sing, eat, etc….with them. I feel sad already because I do not want this program to come to an end, but in my heart, it will never end. Thanks for everything! You might think you’re not doing anything to help, but just because you are here, it means a lot to me. I love you guys!

I’m excited for tomorrow since we’re going to flash mob a ton of places in Boston, and I get to show off my dance skills, hehe..

And the place we rehearsed today was pretty cold, but it was kind of great to cool off from the warm places we usually practice in.
