paris, france.

i've been to notre dame 4 times in three days. and cried every time.
my french isn't THAT bad. my hair is gross. italian boys like me. i'm almost finished with "the bell jar" by sylvia plath. i have my own room in a hostel on the 7th floor with one huge window that easily slides open, no screen. i feel kind of sad but totally good. i can't get over how beautiful every building is. yesterday i visited the d'orsay and wished i was the only person there. people were taking photos of the paintings. i thought that was weird and their flashes made me headache-y. i had a croissant and coffee for breakfast. what time is it in austin? i have a bad habit of missing people.

queens, ny

i'm huddled under thick blankets in a hotel room in queens. the awesome women who are taking me to paris insist on keeping the AC on. high. i slept through the night with a stomach full of cheetos and stole all the balnkets from debbie, ha! this morning was brought to me by free breakfast and free ny times, heaven. the plane leaves for paris very soon, excitement has taken over.
i feel like i'm going to the edge of the earth.
i feel like i don't ever know how to tell people how thankful i am.

space and vigor.
ready and go!

frederick, maryland.

it's surreal to be back in the town that broke my heart, stole my virginity, and got me high for the first time. it's cold. i slept 12 hours last night and dreamed that my old step sister butchered a horse. somehow i remember all the roads, faces too.
