Staying out until two to have girl time is worth it.
Spending in time in the Strong parlor to listen to your friend practice piano, taking breaks to play Beyoncé and sing together is worth it.
Researching prayer books and Greek theater and artists and spending hours in the library and checking out 20 books is worth it.
The struggle of meditation is worth it.
Reading for fun is worth it.
Countless hours of tech leading up to a show is worth it.
Money and time to show appreciation of your friends is worth it.
Hard conversations to make relationships better are worth it.
Waking up early is worth it.

One week until I go home. And I am feeling so full of gratitude. SO full.
