i have art history:film analysis from 9-12 and intro to printmaking from 6-9. i’m excited, but i want the awkward first day to just be overrrrrr. (ps: good luck freshies!)

- koji: mother, could you play that song? the song where the girl's lover drowns and she throws herself into the sea.
- shige: you always ask for that song.
- koji: are you really finished playing?
- shige: i'm not going to drown those poor lovers again.
- koji: drowning's supposed to be very pleasant, once you stop struggling. you feel you're breathing the water, everything's very peaceful.

- setsuko: blue.
- shige: it's very red for blue.
- setsuko: yes.
