There is a girl who never goes out.

I can hear the wind from my bedroom.

Last night I could feel it, as I walked from my school to my bus station, and then from that second bus station to my house.

It was so cold I almost cried.

I do not want to leave my house today, but will, at least twice. First, to pick up my bridesmaid dress from the tailors. Second, to take the commuter train to Wrentham/Brian/homemade pizza. Though I trust the latter event will be, I pray that it is worth it.

To J.D. Salinger:

"You're a real prince. You're a gentleman and a scholar, kid."
Rest in peace.

Let me come home.

Home is whenever I'm with you.

I cannot stop listening to this song.
