i have not written anything for a long while.
this summer has been going alright so far. i've done a lot of beaching and swimming, and shopping and working. but there has never been a time more than this, where i have wanted to get the hell out of this city. i need a change of pace so badly, and this summer, i'm itching to do it.
i'm going to get in my car one of these days, and just drive, semi-aimlessly, down some highway. i'll give myself a rough destination, like new york, or quebec city, or some camping ground. i'll drive for a day, and then explore my surroundings. get back in my car, and drive farther, swim in waters i've never swam before, and walk on beaches i've never walked before.
there is something about ottawa that makes you detest your hometown. it's one of those towns that, you hate, but once you leave, you miss. it's taken for granted in some way, i guess.
i just need a break. a time to enjoy new things, and be completely spontaneous, and independant.
i'll see you along the water.
