I know this is sort of unorthodox, I mean, you’ve probably already heard about it, right? Geez, I hope no one is angry or weirded out! I’ll bet everyone knows, word travels so fast in the Warren. I may as well just fess up. I kind of, just set up a tent under the Tree in the Square last night. I just stayed here, I was just feeling so much better, and I didn’t want to go back to the Cooperative. I don’t know what it is about that place, but I just feel so hazy there—in a mental sort of way—I just want to sleep all day.
I’ve been up all day and feeling great! I actually decided to turn in another report this week. I did it on a song called “Dogpatch” by this guy on the Surface named Morgan Greenwood. I usually keep a really close eye on his releases, but this one came out a couple of months ago. I don’t know how I missed it. Not very mouser-like of me, it’s shameful, I’m slipping—I’ve just been struggling to keep up with classes at the academy and this weird sleep disorder or whatever. Maybe it’s tied to stress, it only happens there.
But Morgan Greenwood’s music is just—it’s just so perfectly suited to my mood now that I’ve broken free of all that. It’s light, and contented—there’s this energy to it too, kind of kinetic and like, a spring in it’s step, if that makes any sense. It’s just so beautiful and uplifting.
Also, Honeybear, I’ve got kind of a…kind of a favor to ask. I uh…I don’t know if they will eventually kick me out of the square for camping so, um, can I come stay at the station again? I’m not dropping out of the Academy or anything; I’ll still go to my classes. I just don’t want to live in the Cooperative. I know it’s a lot to ask but, I just get the worst sleep and it’s wearing me down.
