20-29 December 2017
I don’t think I have ever been so happy to get somewhere. I thought that I wouldn’t feel completely comfortable and at home until I got back to Tampa. I was wrong. I felt myself immediately slide into the familiarity that is this city. I knew I liked it since the first day of the first time I arrived. After meeting someone that made such an impact on me, I appreciated it even more. The days went by much too fast. Usually I always count down days until I am leaving somewhere but I wasn’t here. For some reason, I guess I thought I could trick myself into thinking that I could fold him up, put him in my suitcase, and take him home with me. If only it were that easy.
I want to keep my memories my own. This is all you get.
Even if you know it will end, let yourself love recklessly and freely.
