Hummingbird Heart.

My heart is racing. My heart is racing.

The reason:

Once upon a time, in a month long, long ago (aka March), many a thing I was interested in was due, on the same day. Some serious things, and some silly things. I decided to try for all of them.

Thanks to that initial decision, I won a $200 gift card to a local boutique, became a 2012 Summer Scholar at St. Olafs in Minnesota to learn Danish this June/July, and most recently (read: 120 seconds ago) was accepted to speak at a conference in Copenhagen, Denmark this August(!)

Try. Everything.

Remember that one time I chose to go on two trips in the middle of my finals? Oh, me too. Let's just say I have never been more excited to finish a paper. And also that tomorrow begins the slow recovery of my life.
