july third:

what is it about shoes that makes me feel so goddamn nostalgic? i mean, i had that pair of forever 21 saddle shoes for about a year and a half and i walked them into the ground, but no matter how pretty the replacements were, i still felt like i lost a piece of myself when i picked them up from payless. and i hate to admit it, but i couldn't bring myself to get rid of those old ones. they're hiding in my closet still. most of july was a mess of emotions and confusion and feeling really lonely even when i had a lot.

later on that day--a late night trip to barnes and noble with gabrielle and liam and lexi.

independence day fireworks, as photographed from the tent that thea, sarah, jonathan, john, and i were huddled up in on july 4th:
