visited the grave of my college roommate and close friend joanna today. she died by suicide in 2013, at 22. there's still a hole in my life where she was. it never goes away, really. depression is a curse.

i finally finished Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN. It is amazingly and also sometimes beautifully melodramatic. Like Goth monster Hamlet. The monster is SO ELOQUENT and I cant get over how that was totally erased in every film!
also Victor Frankenstein gets a horrible fever every time he gets bad news. for like months at a time.
also, SO many beautiful descriptions of lakes! made me really want to visit Geneva someday.
