au revoir winterbourne
my mother says, do you really need to move out so soon? couldn't you wait until the spring when you're moving to the coast?
yes, mother, i need to move out so soon. i need space away from this family that keeps me from being all that i can be. i need a quiet space where i can recharge from the things that stress me out throughout the day. here, i never get that space and it is driving me crazy. i want to be able to walk around the house naked, fuck my girlfriend in the kitchen, play my music as loud as possible, watch whatever i want on television, make as much mess as i'd like, read quietly instead of being disturbed by other people's noise, and i can't do any of these things here. i'd like to be able to eat without you commenting on what or how much i'm eating, to use the shower without someone banging on the door needing to use it, to make tea at four in the morning without worrying who i am waking up, to come and go as i please without you asking eight million questions about where i'm going and who i'm going with and where i was last night.
i want privacy and freedom and i have waited long enough. september and out.
