move it to the exits

You don’t have to go home but you can’t…stay…here…

Ten years ago this summer. We drove around in the warm and the sun with our hair up and our windows down and sang the words and thought “This is it. This is us.”

It was our anthem. Our summer song. To dream to and believe in. Real. Absolute.

We saw beyond the fear we didn’t know was there and saw ourselves. Somehow.

Just like Madagascar and Jasmine always reminds me of him. The places I’ll be from…always reminds me of you.

    Wow! I didn’t know you had taken the LSAT…. was our favourite writer well on her way to becoming a lawyer once before she decided to detour to europe and a career in creative scribing? 🙂

    And omg, was that song really 10 years ago…? Now that I think about it, I remember rocking that song in the car on my way to visit my university for the incoming freshman orientation… which would have been waaay back in 1998… sigh.. yup, that’s right, 10 years ago. Holy shit, where did the time go?

    Ahh Semisonic, you great one hit wonder of the late 90s. I salute you and all the memories of the Reality Bites-esque Gen-X/Yness of my childhood you bring back.
