11:59 p.m.: Days left: 1!
Tomorrow morning (!) I leave home and Briar Creek for Canterwood Crest Academy. I got up to blog because I could not sleep. Usually, I’m up late on Fridays anyway, but not like this. Blogging is better than talking sometimes because I can sit down and let all of my thoughts come out unfiltered on the page. I’ve been blogging all summer—Dad’s suggestion—and now I’m totally addicted to it.
I’m scared about tomorrow. So scared. I’m still second-guessing all of my decisions about everything. I’ll admit it: All of these questions keep rolling around my brain, like:
Am I leaving Briar Creek too soon?
Am I ready for the competitive riding life again?
Are Whisper and I prepared?
Will anyone find out my secret before I’m ready to talk about it or any other part of my past?
That last question is the one keeping me awake. Tonight and every night.
