To be fair, my closet happens to be the safest space on campus. For one, it's ridiculously warm. I can't explain why it's that warm, but it is. Also, it's big enough to fit in comfortably. Also, all my coats are there, and they're soft. Also, it's dark, which is nice when I need to be all by myself. Also, it feels like Narnia.
Sometimes I still really struggle with not having space to call my own. Since I was little, I've always needed time to be alone, and space to call my own. Basically space where I could be sure I'd be alone. I've more or less adjusted since coming to college, but when I'm feeling too surrounded by people, I go hide in my closet. We're going to pretend that's normal.

Day 14: I am thankful for the sunshine (and no snow) on campus.
Day 15: I am thankful for yesterday's light workload I had that let me have time to blow off everything and read The Hobbit in one sitting.
