I didn't feel like myself these days. I just felt so lost, so alone. High school was tough and making new friends in a brand new city was harder than I thought it'd be. The harmonious sound of the Christmas carols at this time of year brought me great comfort. My favorite was to sit in Church and listen to them pipe through the vast space, an echo making the melodies last even longer. I sat there one Sunday and just closed my eyes, taking it all in. Somehow knowing in that moment that it was all going to be okay, I felt washed over by an eerie calm.
