I Still Can't Believe It
After 8 years (6 years of which were spent in school), 2 dorms, 5 apartments, 8 different roommates, 2 kittens, and countless late nights and pitchers of beer and whiskeys and drunken tacos and dance parties with the girls of Via Micheli and laughs and tears - I’m going to be leaving New York. I just can’t seem to wrap my head around it.
My Aunt Haris took this video of me at Bridal Veil Falls in Oregon yesterday.
One Thing You Should Know About Me:

For example, I could smell the hyacinth that my landlords had set out on their kitchen table - at the back of the house - as soon as I walked in the door. [Essentially this just means that I’ll go weak in the knees for flowers that smell good (hyacinth, lilies, gardenias, jasmine, etc…), and boys who use nice soap].

I still get sad every time I think about Richard Dreyfuss sitting in that car, telling me about how Chris Chambers died in a knife fight.
