|My dorm room, freshman year.|
|The shrine Emily and I made in the library sophomore year. I think the photo|
in the cow's mouth is a photocopy of Emily's passport. Everything else speaks for itself.

|My ironic "Ke$ha" phase coincided with reading Uncle Tom's Cabin|
|My computer desk, Junior year. (I think?)|

- "a strong need to not be lonely controls almost everything they do."
- "Colin is extremely haunted by his father’s death" (Extremely haunted? How?)

- "Colin, on the other hand, can hardly even slightly agree to get a job when Audrey suggests it. He’s selfish and stubborn and starting to reek of his father’s sort of choices."
- "Amelie and Colin are both young, independent people, trying to make more out of lives that always seemed doomed."
- Colin’s movie ends in a dark room, dirty, working-class hands pulling at gas masks. (This is the last line of the paper. Yes, I've always been a positive person.)
