BACK HOME IT’S THE WEED, movies, senseless drinking and social media scrolling that try to pry away the crippling boredom. But they are all exhaustingly under-stimulating. You can’t get high enough to make the Internet worth it, movies and alcohol don’t last long enough.
You can spend your entire life this way, waiting on the edge of your seat for nothing to ever happen.Out here everything happens at once—the purple dawn, mirrored lake, the smooth transition from the frost-bitten dark into the warm break of day. It all collapses around you at once and the feeling is no longer of running on the heels of excitement but instead trying to keep it from pouring out like a punctured cup of water.
