Tonight’s my last night in the house I grew up in. My family’s moving to Philadelphia tomorrow and, more than any other change I’ve gone through in the past few years, this feels like the closing of a chapter. I feel like I’m doing something irreversible, something permanent, and I know this is gonna mean leaving part of my childhood behind me for good.

More importantly, I won’t have one place I can truly call home after this. My soul is split between my family, my life at school, and my attachment to Boston— but no one place is the whole me anymore like this one is… or was.

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

My little sister is just getting into Pokemon cards and her favorite animal is a giraffe so I bought her a Girafarig card on Amazon

She told me today it’s her favorite card :3

Sam Smith - Not In That Way

I hate to say I love you
When it’s so hard for me
And I hate to say I want you
When you make it so clear
You don’t want me

I’d never ask you ‘cause deep down
I’m certain I know what you’d say
You’d say, “I’m sorry believe me
I love you but not in that way”
