and yet another.
"i take back hating richmond. i actually am happy here. i am ready to leave, but i'm at peace here. it's a good place for an introvert. i can spend days here without talking to anybody. there are so many interesting and different coffee shops and diners. the different cultural layers are great... there is a quiet prettiness about the old streets + colors + houses, but also a gritty + dark feel of dishonesty, dirty water, cigarettes, tattoos + debauchery. could it be likened to cursive's ugly organ record? there are beautiful parts, like the instrumentals in staying alive and the beginning of the recluse, but also dark + painful + charged parts, like art is hard. or the pain in the voice of sierra."
