The Last Summer Update I

Somehow forgot about my little happy place on the website. The past couple of weeks have been a tough ride. Auburn is something I want so bad to enjoy and a place that I wish I could grow in, feel fulfilled in, be present in. I can’t though. There is something stopping me, stopping it, stopping life for every minute I am here. I am frozen somehow and oh wow how I wish I wasn’t. Not to say there isn’t good, not to stay that the mornings are almost always better than the nights. Yet here I am, and here I stay. This one’s to being <3

Something that forced me to change: Working at a restaurant with Hispanic immigrants all sharing one trailer, with Chinese students on visas with lives I had never imagined, with people who contradict politics and logic and ways of looking at this crazy world.
