this is awkward...but right now, i just really want someone to hold me. a great big hug. i want it to be a guy too. something about boys' hugs says safety to me. preferably taller than me, maybe a strong build. definitely gentle and not obnoxiously loud. a tight hug like cynthia's and as meaningful as nick and esteban's goodbye hugs. as tender as madison's...
what can i say, even at 5 in the morning i'm homesick for these faces...and yet, i still know that i'm exactly where i'm supposed to be. i just really...really need a hug right now. i need someone to let down their Avoid-the-new-person guard and give me a flipping hug.
having a hard time feeling the love right now. this is no longer solitude, it's lonliness...yuck. that needs to change. big time.
