I have had a day.
I don’t want to get into specifics, because this is the Internet, but it was so full of absurdity, and disappointment, and disrespect, and quiet sadness, and each time I thought that, surely, that must be it, it wasn’t. It was a day.
But, in a way, that this was a series of unfortunate events was a good thing. Because, as of this writing, I have no more of myself to give to this day. No more energy to spend on any of the aforementioned. No more time to take care of any of it. No place in my brain to think about it, or anything other than the fact that I come from a loving, stable home, and that I have seen some quality places and met some quality people, and that I will go on to meet many more, and that I have learnt languages, and that I try to be good, and that I have cool hair, and that I’m wearing very fashion-forward trousers, and that I’m lucky to be where and what and who I am, even—or especially—on days like this.
I fly back to England tomorrow, and so it is time for me, full of feeling, to present the Five Commandments of my second summer (a continuation of the first.)
5. When thou feels like crying, thou shalt find the humor in the situation. Thou shalt laugh.
4. Thou shalt surround thyself with good people.
