“I wanted so badly to lie down 
next to her on the couch, 
to wrap my arms around her and sleep. 
Not fuck, like in those movies. 
Not even have sex. 
Just sleep together 
in the most innocent sense of the phrase. 
But I lacked the courage 
and she had a boyfriend 
and I was gawky 
and she was gorgeous 
and I was hopelessly boring 
and she was endlessly fascinating. 
So I walked back to my room 
and collapsed on the bottom bunk, 
thinking that if people were rain, 
I was drizzle 
and she was hurricane.”



John Green, Looking for Alaska

Saw this quote 
brought back memories of the book
& how apt it is to today's weather.
