This was submitted by theotheralice after she graduated high school and started college as an English major.
I miss my friends and my family and my old way of life the same way Cathy longs for her childhood to be wild and free again and I think every woman is savage and hardy and free at heart. We cant be tamed :) right?
“Oh, I’m burning! I wish I were out of doors! I wish I were a girl again, half savage and hardy, and free; and laughing at injuries, not maddening under them! Why am I so changed? why does my blood rush into a hell of tumult at a few words? I’m sure I should be myself were I once among the heather on those hills. Open the window again wide: fasten it open! Quick, why don’t you move?”
