    I feel like 'spontaneous trip to Montreal' sounds better on paper because finding train tickets and a place to stay and things to do while realizing it's a nine hour train ride each way on a three or four day weekend seems a bit less amazing

    beyond the rain

    i'm trying really hard not to take yet another leave of absence, but I can't get what happened in manchester out of my head. We could've lost my sister that night, and I'm so grateful that she's still with us and unharmed. So I'm sorry if I'm terrible at responding to PMs or I'm not as helpful lately but I'm trying guys, I promise :)
