Laneia’s Team Pick: ‘That Time I Took Photos, Often Outside’

I just want the ocean right now.

I just want an audio tour of my life in a foreign language I don’t understand, and someone who can translate it for me.

I just want a home by the ocean I’m lying I want to never have a home ever again. I do I want a home by a lake. I want to be in charge of a thing.

I just want to get into a space where maybe I could stay for a while, lying on the kitchen floor reading Inferno.

I feel relaxed and the sun goes down behind the buildings every night.

When I get a place I will feel better. I know there is fear underneath my ribcage and my stomach and all the other parts. The visible parts. I am lying on top of it, smiling and eating tomatoes.

  1. Laneia, I’m drunk right now so I finally have the courage to post and say I think you are gorgeous. (I will still think that after I’ve sobered up)

    you know, I’m an electrical engineering student so you should keep in mind that I do it with maximum power, high frequency and low resistance. (ok, so this might be slightly inappropriate and a bit too nerdy)

    Have a great night!

    btw, I really like reading what Riese writes and I’m really glad she came up with the idea for Autostraddle = ]
