Good news! I’m back to being cool with solitude. Which means I’m coming to more chill terms with myself. For two days I stayed in my room and worked on a collage, then I took myself out for food and read a book. I didn’t even realize that I’d been silent the whole day gluing and cutting until I got a text from my friend reminding me that we were going out later.

Although I still have bad days and moments, overall I feel so much lighter. It may be because it’s summer, and I’m not in school, but I’ll be attending a different campus in the fall; maybe I’ll be able to maintain this level of subtle tranquility. My new roommate emailed me last week and I think we’re going to get along just fine. ♦
