Saying goodbye to summer.
Seeing relationships as they are.
I don’t want to be like anybody but myself.
Also: what to do when younger siblings are looking at the X-rated internet.
All around me.
The world keeps going ’round.
A cross-country, cross-generational collaboration.
And July starts with a yeeeuuuuuuggggggh.
Hanging with my bros.
