Or the account of my decline into barbarism (and all of the lovely, mad people who helped me do it).

The Loneliest Country on Earth

I guess it's about time to get back to this. My French blog is finished, and I must admit that it was easier to write when I had a large audience.

I've been home for about a week now and I'm feeling lonely. No one is ever at home anymore. My dad has a new girlfriend and he spends most of his day with her. My brother and sister have their friends, but I am alone in the mountains. I'm heading up to Asheville tomorrow because I can't stand to be here in this empty house. Though my roommates have class until 4 everyday, I can look forward to talking to them after that. Dylan's in Atlanta, so I won't see him until Thursday afternoon.

Today I reinstated my vegetarianism and self-deprivation tactics in a vain attempt to feel beautiful. Such a futile cause.

Sometimes I really hate this place. The culture here is so cold, so individualistic. I'm constantly being pushed out of restaurants, rushed to the next errand or chore, because time is money and money is time and we all have to get ahead. Jesus, doesn't anybody live anymore?

  1. Beauty is in the heart, my dear.
    Let's spend a day together.
    My uncle and I sat in a Mexican restaurant for 4 hours today. Some people in this country still care about the important things.
    Keep your heart open.
