When I Say “Leave me Alone”

Sometimes I like to have “space”. I like solitude, time on my own. You don’t really get much of that when living in a residential college. There is, however, one pretty good way of being left alone. You could tell people you’d like to be left alone. But there’s a […]

Departure

Sometimes the distance between friends grow and it’s difficult to tell exactly why. Maybe it’s just the body’s defensive mechanism kicking in, preparing them for their eminent separation.
