i can feel restraints falling somewhat away, much like my bicycle and its stupidly broken chain. the pre-college atmosphere is a sappy one, and that's sweet and all but it can also make me do things i normally wouldn't, things that are more honest than most people are willing to be in public or in private. but all i want to write down is that i will always remember the tone of voice that people have when they are being honest in the dark.

tomorrow will be my last day spent going around chicago by myself before i go to college, and i don't really know how i feel about that.
