Look at this, look at all this snow. Does anyone in town know how to use a shovel? Well I guess the answer is no. Shit I fumbled my gloves, oh no I dropped my keys. Now they’re probably buried at the bottom of the snow bank and I bet that they’re gonna freeze.

Cos Providence is miserable in winter. Providence won’t let me go on walks. Providence might ruin my semester, I might have to change my locks.

Who is this coming up the street? It’s that guy I had a class with freshman year, I always thought he was sweet. Oh my god he’s cute. If I talk I’ll choke. Jesus he looks like he’s coming over here. This is gotta be a joke.
Cos Providence has a twisted sense of humour, Providence is just too goddamn small. Providence has everyone I know show up. To watch me slip and fall.

He says how was your break? I think oh my god! He says I didn’t see you much last semester, I think that’s cos I was abroad. He says is this where you live? He says I drop by here sometimes. I think we could be making out on my living room couch If only I could get my way back inside.

But Providence doesn’t want me to be happy. Providence doesn’t want me to find love. Providence just wants to see me suffer. I wish I had some warmer gloves, I thought. I thought I came to school to learn a few things. But there is so much that I don’t know.

There’s too much work. And too many cute boys. And too much fucking snow. I’m still terrified. He starts walking away. Shit I missed my chance. Why am I such a loser, I can’t think of a thing to say.

He says well I gotta go, but welcome back to Brown. If you wanna grab a dinner in the Reddy sometimes, you know ’d be down.

And Providence might not be so awful, Providence is charming in its way. Providence could finally be melting. Spring could be here, any day.

Spring could be here, any day.

Any day.
