Really wish I had all sorts of stories to tell already, but we've been kind of lame since arriving here. Pande was really sick the first few days and then we'd finish dinner, be in bed by 8, and up at 4 or 5 in the morning for the duration of the afternoon. We went out last weekend and it made me feel so old. Not old in the sense that I want to be in my pajamas every night by 7, but more so in the sense that I was so excited to get dressed up to go out and get fucked up- especially considering the price of whiskey here. Now I prefer to go on hikes up the mountains and we are more partial to the cafes that are further down the road from the loud house music that never stops. This weekend I think we are headed to Lake Ohrid which should be fantastic because the weather's been overall shitty this week. It's a shame that there isn't a direct railroad from here to Bulgaria because that's what I desire, a long train ride with rakija, my laptop, fall weather, and Pande asleep on my lap.

I cannot believe it's been almost four years since I posted that picture of Barack and Michelle Obama, which is essentially the last time I posted in my journal. But in two Fridays I'll be heading to Macedonia for seven weeks, so I'd really like to have somewhere to document my trip. My passport came on Saturday morning and now all I want to do is run/drive/fly/escape/experience.

I braved my flu in the freezing cold temperatures this morning to go see Barack Obama and Joe Biden speak for about 20 minutes.

It was so worth it.
I witnessed history.

What is this, to you? Nobody is asking you to embrace their expression of love. But don't you, as human beings, have to embrace... that love? The world is barren enough.

It is stacked against love, and against hope, and against those very few and precious emotions that enable us to go forward. Your marriage only stands a 50-50 chance of lasting, no matter how much you feel and how hard you work.

And here are people overjoyed at the prospect of just that chance, and that work, just for the hope of having that feeling.

Yesterday was easily the best day of my life.
