I’ve never had a truly classically-crazy summer, and I’m glad to have one under my belt. I checked some things off of my life to-do list. (Including but not limited to "wear Coco Mademoiselle regularly".) I made money. (Spent money.) Had a nineties hit stuck in my head most of the time. Got lost. (More than once.) Had adventures. laughed a lot. (Cried a bit.) Took pictures. Ate good food. Made some unexpected friends. Wrote a lot. Pulled all-nighters. Watched the sunrise. Let my guard down. (Even if only a little.)
I feel like, as my old(ish) friend Mrs. Perry would say, this summer "grew me up."
I was, as my new(ish) friend Andi would say, "the bravest."
