I've been waiting for so long. The anticipation has been exhilarating, almost overwhelming at times. I have become emotional and misty thinking about it. I am filled with excitement and dread that it is almost here, and it is almost over. My friends tell me that I should not be sad. This is a GOOD thing. There will be others. It's not really ending.
But it will never be like this again.
THIS will never happen again.
I want it, and I don't want it.
I don't know if I am ready.
But the die has been cast. The wheels are in motion. The pieces are in place.
The cliches are circling.
It cannot be stopped.
I have my wristband.
There's no turning back now.
