The last two weeks of my college career, in no particular order:
Sixty Five pages, four days.
Late night pancakes.
Ordered 25 cds from Amazon.
Foxfields with Brandon Piner.
Returning to Foxfields after the rain to scavenge for potables.
Getting kicked out of Carter’s Mountain.
Almost trespassing Monticello.
Frisbee Golf at Walnut Creek.
Shows with Alex Mejias.
Phi Delt prayer in my room.
Wine event on the roof.
Water ballooning Buddhist Biker Bar.
Water ballooning Hilah in the street.
Water ballooning girl through open driver’s side window.
Confessing to Drew Trotter for all of this.
