beautiful. I'm happy. No, wait, I'm more than happy.

the night is beautiful, and my life is beautiful.
I smoked seven cigarettes last night. Seven. And I

sitting out there, smoking and watching the stars move.

Not because he was drunk --- because he wanted to.
Then...he kissed me. My god, I have never been more
nervous or felt happier in my entire life. It was perfect
in every way.
