I can see the London Eye & I'm wearing a beige dress - this is the first time I've been outdoors in one week I've just turned in my dissertation & in this bottle is one deep exhale.

7 October 2013, 13:36, Hotel exe, Lisboa, Portugal. Dad is sitting on his hotel bed quietly while I pack. It's his birthday and I am so sad to leave - we only see eachother twice a year. He's wearing white cargo shorts and a gray t-shirt - I'm wearing a new red dress he bought me. It's gorgeous outside and I was really, really happy. This is hotel air. Ten minutes later I would be alone in a cab listening to 'Imagine' trying not to cry as we pulled into the airport.

[[To be photographed]] 13 August 2015 - London - time unknown Grace + Jenny May's Flat This is the heavy, dusty air from their living room that filled my lungs as I sat resolute, hopeful, determined + quietly sad on their couch. Grace held my hand as I clicked 'submit' - declining LSE - + turning down a path I spent 2 years building towards, + saying no to London - my home.
