It was a lot easier to be honest with myself in Cambridge.
misswallflower: For the first time in a very long time. I know that this feeling is fleeting, I know that it’ll pass soon, I just want to hold onto it as long as possible, I want to remember it.

takesamuscle: To cry and cry and cry, with the door closed on your bedroom floor, in the corner you didn’t quite get the last time you vacuumed.
