Hold steady.

Nicolette. My middle name means "of the sea" in Spanish.

I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone and smoking a cigarette, when they smirk, the way they half smile, the way they try and hold back tears, the way when their face says they want to say something but can’t, the way they look at someone they want or love… I love the way people look when they do these things. It’s… beautiful.

It’s crazy how different life was around this time last summer. It’s even crazier to see how much things have changed from the beginning of this summer. Life changes quickly, but that’s just how it goes. All we can do is make the best of whatever situation we’re in. This summer was filled with a whole lot of lessons, mistakes, experiences, and memories. Overall, I would say it was a good one. Now it’s time to take everything I’ve learned and put it to good use during my final year of undergrad. ‘Til next time summer. 

Some people say home is where you come from. But I think it’s a place you need to find, like it’s scattered and you pick pieces of it up along the way.
