Ah everyone, this month terrifies me. I have my thesis due in a couple weeks. And then I become a college graduate. I am not ready. I don’t have a job. I don’t know where I’ll end up living. It is all a bit terrifying. Anyway, this week’s quote is from Katherine Arden’s The Bear and the Nightingale.
