I relate to your story so much: the being a 20-something fan amid a crowd of teenagers, dragging a half-interested friend to an event and trying not to geek out too much, moving back in with your parents after graduating and also getting dumped. I hope you have been able to crawl out of all that. I know how rough it was. <br /><br />Also, what you wrote about being haunted by an imagined future is beautiful.<br /><br />DFTBA!Juliahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11790994679759881470noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4814576942989318715.post-28825992933628672412014-03-13T17:11:41.112-07:002014-03-13T17:11:41.112-07:00Amazing and beautifully written blog post and stor...Amazing and beautifully written blog post and story.
