It's time I admit it. I get crushes. I see beautiful faces that are just my type, and I feel an insatiable yearning for them. I take photos, spend hours stalking them on the internet, and borrow books to find out how to approach them.

Thank yous. Good-byes. Cafe Pick-Me-Up. Learning how to pee on the street in NYC. Laughter. Artichoke. Pizza. Random girls puking. Random girls screaming at people in stereotypical Brooklyn accents. People. People. People. My last 14 hours in New York City
