Today.. I am free.
Today I shall drive down the icy freeways of Utah and find myself extrememly entertained via people watching at the SLC airport.
Today I shall write in my journal and call friends that I've missed and
definately chew some gum while sipping on some Diet Coke.

Today I head home to Cali.

Today I get to redeem all my missed sqeezes and smooches.

I am SO very excited.
