Dear July,

You're usually hotter this time of year, but you've been easy on me. Some mornings are wet. Other days dry. But you've been okay to me. You've been okay because you made it okay. My skin still peels from this humidity and this scalp still itchy. I'm beginning to think my skin condition is getting worse and it worries me each day. I'm neurotic about what I eat, but some days I give in to things that make me sick. Still, you've been okay and I've been okay and everything has been okay and I still haven't found a job back home and I haven't found time to clean my room and haven't found time to be with you. I'm sorry, but you've been good to me. I'll see you next year.
