Why do I have so much stuff?!?
Who is Laura Bernet, you may ask? You have surely seen these cute illustrated ads with a girl’s face for the City bank all over the place. Adorable, really. Well, those are hers.
Is that the reason why? Why you hurt me in a way that disregarded all the beautiful things we’ve been through?
You spend more time daydreaming than you do living.
All of your years on the road taught you to believe that staying was the easy option and leaving was the brave one.
I think I am becoming the type of girl that looks for reasons to leave. I search for red flags, for warning signs, for people to give me reasons to say, “No thank you” and retreat back into the fortress of singledom I have built for myself.
There is no difference between a traveller and a tourist.
When they leave, it doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten you. They will still remember how you look when you’re reading a book and the face you make when you take that first sip of coffee in the morning. They will still remember the way you kissed them that one night and how you made them feel like everything was okay.
You’ll go back to your hometown in love.
Find him in your unwashed sheets. Rationalize leaving them for three more weeks because you’re convinced you can smell him.
