Dear Diary

November 27, 2013

Keep calm.


Lately my life feels like a hazy memory, like almost everything has already happened once, then melted and reformed as a facsimile of its former self. Few things feel worth noticing, because every day casts the same gray shadow over me. School drains me on a daily basis and gives me nothing in return. Everything feels like it is hellbent on isolating me no matter what I do or say.

I have a group of friends that I really like and some classmates that I talk to, but everything else—my teachers, the environment, most of the people I know—feels so fake it is beyond fake. I feel trapped. ♦

    Britney– I feel the same way. I always get this feeling that I’ve already done whatever I’m doing. It’s not like deja vu, it’s just like I see every encounter and every social gathering or conversation laid out in front of me like it’s already in my memory, even while it’s happening.

    Absolutely in love with Noami’s piece. So thoughtful and relatable. It’s what I’ve been trying to express but haven’t been able to! It’s as if I’m so concerned with the memory of happiness that I’m not able to enjoy it while it’s happening
