“What do you have in mind after you graduate?”
What I always thought I had in mind was getting some big scholarship to graduate school or a grant to study all over Europe, and then I thought I’d be a professor and write books of poems or write books of poems and be an editor of some sort. Usually I had these plans on the tip of my tongue.
“I don’t really know,” I heard myself say. I felt a deep shock, hearing myself say that, because the minute I said it, I knew it was true.
It sounded true, and I recognized it.

My favorite comm theorist. How brilliant.
hahahaha best ever. I’m laughing insanely and they might kick me out of the library.
Blair: Yes, this was supposed to happen. I’m sure of it. But now that it has—
Nate: Why are you talking in the past tense? We’re still here.
Blair: I know. But this night already feels like a memory.
Arguably, the most poetic goodbye ever. :(
Is this the moment where you fall in love with me?
Oh it is, isn’t it?
You’re totally falling in love with me right now.

Yeah, I guess this is what I feel. :(
Uh-oh. They’re coming for me.
