leaving

so i’ve been reading “through painted deserts”, a book by one of my favorite authors, donald miller, and i’m already in love with it. it’s the beginning of a road trip he starts in houston, goes through oklahoma to the grand canyon, and ends up in portland. not only is the writing absolutely beautiful, the topic really intrigues me. just the idea of driving off into the unknown…no map…no timeline….just the open road, white dashes shooting by on your left side. although i love chicago, i think it’s important to experience “leaving”…i hope me and pete get to experience that at one point. what would be better than cudding up next to a best friend that you are fully in love with, and just driving off into something new and mysterious that you both get together? i crave that sort of freedom. maybe that will be europe for us. we’ve talked about it. and i know it’s something he would willingly take on. i’m more likely to give some resistance…but i know that once  step off that cliff…stuck in a freefall…it would be the most exhilarating experience of my life.

on another note, i’m currently inside the truman lobby, waiting for pete to get out of class. my meter’s been expired for 12 minutes now…so i keep looking nervously out the window. but i’m glad i got to get this post in.

also, i wish i had my book with me :[
