learning, loving, listening, list-making, living
my favorite part of my day is when i get to walk down to my classes. i’ve gotten into the habit of always arriving late, but it’s okay because the fifteen minutes it takes to trek down and up the magical hills and stairs of UCLA have become crucial to my sanity. i think my professors will understand. i like this journey because i can spend time with myself without the distraction of my laptop or phone and listen to my ipod through my terrible headphones and watch people walk by, look at the sky, sing along with the song playing, wear sunglasses to stare longer at beautiful faces, and sip my tiny bottle of water while taking the sloooowest strides on bruinwalk. i like ignoring the people on either side of me trying to hand me flyers, nodding to them along with my music and basically climb up the many sets of stairs that leave me gasping for breath and my back dripping with sweat. it takes exactly 14.4 minutes for me to walk from my dorm to broad. one mile. i checked on google maps. the only moments of peace i have. 14.4 minutes, one mile.
