So there we were, Annabeth and Grover and I, walking through the woods along the New Jersey riverbank, the glow of New York City making the night sky yellow behind us, and the smell of the Hudson reeking in our noses.
Walked around Times Square on this beautiful first day of the year while listening to 1989. I made this lettering of Taylor Swift’s name and I thought I’d take pictures of it where she gave a fantastic performance a couple of hours ago.
Happy New Year taylorswift and all of you Swifties out there! Hope you have a good one!
feeling just like a little kid on a road trip. always wondering if were there and if you can stretch. trying to catch a break and ending up with broken hearts. the consistent worry of whether or not you’re missing out tonight. you’re just so tired. more tired than you used to be after kindergarten with mulch still in your shoes. more tired than winter mornings. hanging on for things like the purple in the sky after the sun has set. or the way raindrops collect like diamonds on your window. the wind is blowing so hard at your bedroom wall you think it’s out to get you. she’s not. i promise.
New York, you are an Egypt! But an Egypt turned inside out. For she erected pyramids of slavery to death, and you erect pyramids of democracy with the vertical organ-pipes of your skyscrapers all meeting at the point of infinity of liberty!
