Je ne suis pas ennuyeux.

Iår har jag, for the record:

- Åkt snowboard för första gången på ca sju år. Och jag var inte helt värdelös.
- Varit på zoo och kollat på tigrar.
- Klättrat på klättervägg, och det var jag också riktigt bra på.
- Sprungit Vårruset, även om 'springa' kanske är att överdriva en aning.
- Skickat två blombuketter till min mamma på Mors Dag.
- Varit i Grekland med min bästaste bästa vän.
- Varit på en spelning och en releasefest.
- Varit på två bra dejter som slutade misslyckat för den som inte var jag.
- Varit på East Street, Biljardpalatset och Friday's otaliga gånger.
- Jag ska dessutom, inom loppet av tre månader, åka till New York, London, springa Tjejmilen, hoppa bungyjump samt bjuda min mamma på en cool (för mig) kombinerad födelsedagspresent.
Jag försöker verkligen leva fullt ut. Men jag är odödlig, inte osårbar, och alla vet att det inte går att börja någon annanstans än inifrån. Så nu blåser jag alla gränser från samma håll. Don't wait up. I probably won't be there.
