When I went home for Thanksgiving, the weather was so perfect and I spent a lot of time outside. Living in the city makes you appreciate the outdoors even more - I realized that I'd started to forget how wonderful it feels to just exist in nature. You start to forget about all the stars and sunsets and quietness and freshness. It felt like I had new eyes almost. I took a lot of time to reflect while walking around Walden Pond, enjoyed good conversations with my parents, caught up with old friends, and breathed. Deeply.
