1. Well I'm free. This is freedom. JE SUIS LIBERTE.

No lectures, no essays, no deadlines, no stress. Just me and the open road of the future.

2. It's going to be the longest and greatest summer of all time.

I'm going to do so much, see so many people and live my very best life at all times.

An empty life, in which I have absolutely no idea what to do next. Iiiinteresting.
