How have you guys been? It's been six days, and I've missed you. So here I am again! Pleading for your mercy, but not really, because I don't care since this is my digital diary and not yours.. Who ever "you" are.. Anyways, I just wanted to say Hi and that although this summer is coming to an end, and I have failed to document most of it here in my Dream Box, it's been a great one and I'm glad I could share it with you guys. Man, that was the longest run on sentence ever... 
    But honestly guys, if someone were to ask me how my Summer was I could honestly tell them that it was the best summer of my life. It even makes me think of a Looking for Alaska quote - that sounds so nerdy, but it is indeed true... - that goes like this:
    "Before I got here, I thought for a long time that the way out of the labyrinth was to pretend it did not exist, to build a small, self-sufficient world in the back corner of the endless maze and to pretend that I was not lost, but home. .... So I came here looking for the Great Perhaps, for real friends and a more-than-minor life."
    Now, with this quote I'm not saying that I was lonely before, or even that I hid in the back corner of life. What I'm trying to say is that before I got to this point in my life, I was just another stupid teenager who didn't know what she wanted, and I still don't, but I have learned a lot and that's made me more of what I want to be and hope to be someday. When summer came, I was looking for something great, friends, and - of course - a more-than-minor life. And that is exactly what I got. 
    This summer was amazing, and it couldn't have been better. So much happened, in such little time. I went on a great adventure around Seattle with my friend Mau. I went to Chicago and visited the Bean in Millennium park which has always beena dream of mine. I watched the Lake Union fireworks on the 4th of July - which I have never done before. I went to summer school for three weeks, and liked it. [Now, let's be honest here, who can really say that?] I went to FREAKING ENGLAND by myself to study at Cambridge University. I even started my own Collab channel with six other awesome teenagers.
    ....I don't know what else to say other than: "Pinch me." Surely this must be a dream, an amazing, beautiful, surreal dream. That's honestly all that I can think, that it's all just a dream. But amazingly, it's not. And I miss everyone I haven't seen since my last day of school, those I parted ways with from the Cambridge College Programme, friends who haven't been around, and even my friends that I've seen recently. But I can leave you with this, which makes me always feel better:
    "Don't be sad that it's over, just be happy that it even happened." -Aaron Geldner
                        And this one:
    "We're just one day closer to being reunited." -Ben Troyer
