many miles later we arrived in chicago and rested our gams for a spell. i took the train to new york city, arriving one week before the start of the semester without a place to live and carrying only what fit on my bike.
that was a little over a year ago now and i'd like to think that i'm adjusting to the crazy pace and peculiar rhythms of this city. i have one more year to write something brilliant and i'm in the process of applying to phd programs. maybe i'll stay here and study forever. wouldn't that be nice?
