This is where I live now, essentially, and it's where I grew up. Here I have made friends and enemies. Here I have loved and lost. Here I have continued to uncover mysteries and let them teach me what manner of person I want to become. I feel so familiar with this scene that I've become confident the dream I expressed above is here somewhere if I have the will to forge it. And here is where I'm rooming with my 4 closest friends in the world, only one of which I've known for less than 7 years.
