I’ve never comprehended this idea of spoilers, the folks who line up to get the last Harry Potter, and turn right to the last page of the book as soon as it’s in their hands. My favorite time as a kid was not Christmas morning. It was the night before Christmas, and the sense of expectation. Nothing is ever as good as your imagination. That’s how it works. “I wanted a G.I. Joe and I got socks.”

Listen to the voice in the back of your head which tells you, as much out of sadness as anger, ‘You are ugly. You are stupid. You are boring.’ Give it the fleeting moment of attention it so craves, and then remind it, “Even if that were true, I’d still be worth loving.

Also, all I want to do is write and write and write about things I’m thinking and feeling and doing and seeing and how being in Rome is so lonely but also not lonely at the same time because I feel like I’m being stuffed full of thoughts and smiles and Italian every day and how I need to start running because all the carbs are making me gain weight and I have so many people back home who love me but does it even matter when they are all asleep right now anyways and do you think any of them dream about me because I rarely dream here, but when I do, it’s usually about them and there are just too many places to go and not enough money and I have a midterm to study for, it’s late and it’s early and there are billions of people in the world always doing things and being places and filling up their days with thoughts. 

I just turned 21. And I live in Rome. What is my life?!

I never realize how much I like being home unless I’ve been somewhere really different for a while.
