In October 2018, I moved to Dresden, Germany. This would prove to be one of the most challenging times of my life. In order to understand myself and how I changed during this time, I wrote extensively, in total over 18,000 words. This series contains the best and worst of me. Each narrative (aside from the first and last) uses a musical work as a theme. Without listening to each song or album, one cannot fully understand the experiences described.
