"I once had a dream, or a vision, and I imagined that dream to be of importance to other people, so I wrote the manuscript and made the film. But it is not until the moment when my dream meets with your emotions and your minds that my shadows come to life. It is your recognition that brings them to life. It is your indifference that kills them. I hope that you will understand; that you when you leave the cinema will take with you an experience or a sudden thought—or maybe a question. The efforts of my friends and myself have then not been in vain…" — Ingmar Bergman

The last thing I’d ever subscribe to are fashion rules. However, I do think that you should put effort into what you wear. Clothing is ultimately the suit of armor in which we battle the world. When you choose your clothing right, it feels good. And there’s nothing shallow about feeling good.

1. I forgot how aggressive métro men are and was yelled at for ignoring this guy. 

2. Saw a movie and went out for Vietnamese food with this guy I barely know and his girlfriend. Both were awesome and we had a great conversation that reminded me why I missed this place so much—the people. 

3. Ran into one of my classmates from university (in NYC) because I was near my old program center. 

4. Scratched by a cat while we were playing with his weasel scarf. Yes, you read that correctly. 

5. Netflix hasn’t quite launched in France yet, so I’m going through serious withdrawal. Should be here by the end of the year. 

6. Other than the aforementioned acquaintance (now friend) and my former host family, I haven’t seen ANY of my friends, 3/4 of which are men of a certain age.
