It’s not turning out how I want, but that’s okay.
If this never sees the light of day again, I at least want to show this.
A week or two back, i was in Maine with my family. At around 10 at night, we were leaving from dinner and my brother said something about a geocache being nearby. And we’re all down for looking for it, so we went. It was off an unmarked, but clear trail by the beach. So we walked along the beach until we got to a very grassy, swampy area.
And my shoes were getting wrecked and waterlogged. We walked along the treeline and it was pitch black. A few of us were using our phones as flashlights and I was trailing behind, leading my mom. When my brother said that the cache was in the trees somewhere, I decided I had enough and that I’d wait. I gave my mom my phone for light and stood in the darkness.
I was preoccupied by the night sky because it was a sight I’d never seen before.
I’ve lived in San Francisco and the middle of New Jersey. in both places, the sky is pretty and you can see a fair amount of stars. But in Maine on that night, for the first time, I was able to see the Milky Way. it was faint and everything was different shades of nearly the same blue, but I saw it. I saw the way clearly and the rift between the brighter streaks. There was a dome of light far off from a city, but it didn’t disrupt the view overpoweringly.
And if I return to this and fail to capture it, I’m still glad I tried. I want to see it again sometime.

I haven’t had a girlfriend/been in a relationship since last year. .__.
Unless you mean all the total babes I surround myself with.
