    So Happy!!!

    My CHL arrived today, finally! Yay! Its been about 4 months. I wanna tell people, but then it wouldn't be concealed and this is the only place I have to shout it out lol.

    I gotta wonder though why I have this weird feeling. Its almost like... buying my first 6 pack when I turned 21. Anyone else feel slightly weird the day after? Anxiety almost, maybe?

    ...could be because I need a cigarette though. Anyhow,

    Congratulations.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Congrats! And FWIW you will only want to tell people for the first few weeks. Pretty soon you will see the wisdom in secrecy.

    Way to go!! It's always a good feeling to the rest of us the good citizens when another joins us in proactively exercising our rights. Thank YOU for making the commitment and sticking with it.

    Congrats fellow Texan. Welcome to the ranks. After a couple of days wearing that feeling will go away.

    Yay, fellow Texan! You feel like most of us did/do -- Woo hoo! Look what I got! See everybody?

    It passes. So does the weird feeling.
    What you don't want to pass is the knowledge of how much responsibility you carry. THAT still stuns me sometimes.
