how old everything is. i’ll miss old brick buildings and regularly seeing houses that are as old as/older then the country. i love the sense of history here even if it’s something that most people don’t often notice/think about. i will also miss the fact that when something happens in this country, it happens on the east coast. fall. not feeling overdressed if i actually make...
