That was beautiful. Thank you, Meredith. Thank you.
That was SO good.
I had the best day ever a few months ago. It started off a little funny, though. The night before (well, by the time we got back it was about 7 in the morning) was a little crazy, and it involved a good friend of mine visiting and finding out he had no place to stay. This, of course, was the same day that my parents were staying with me. As I am a girl and my friend was a boy, naturally my parents at first freaked out when he needed to stay with us, but eventually softened and let us all get a little bit of sleep after a long night.
I woke up at about 11 or so, after my parents ran some errands, to go get lunch with them and be with them for a little while. I got back from all that at about 5 to find my friend and roommates hanging out in the living area. My parents went to run more errands with my brother, so I was left to hang out with my friends. This friend of mine happens to be someone I have a big crush on, so I was having a good enough time just seeing him. We watched my roommate play through her video game, and he and I cuddled on the couch some. Felt good, man.
Then, we felt like going out and doing awesome stuff. So, we went to eat dinner because they hadn't eaten much, and that was fun because we hung out with another friend we hadn't seen in a while, and the four of us were just laughing and having a good time at the delicious Thai restaurant. With everyone full, we moved on to a local cafe/bakery by the lake that I had never been to before. It was really nice, even though it was a grey and cold evening. We sat out on the dock, drinking coffee and hanging out the four of us some more. There was a lot of little flirting here and there between me and my friend, a lot of laughing, a lot of much needed social interaction. It wasn't till about 1 that we figured we ought to go back. Eventually we made it back to my apartment and it was time to say goodnight. My friend was going to stay with our other friend, so we said goodbye. I almost kissed him, but we never got a moment alone for me to.
Oddly enough, I've made out and what not with this guy before that day. We aren't together because blah blah blah, but we are very comfortable with each other, and are pretty close friends. The part that is weird is just how, typing all that makes it seem like a relatively mundane day. I also know it doesn't seem like very much really happened. But that day seriously lifted my spirits. Just being close to him, holding hands even. I think what made me happiest was just the fact that it was the most innocent of our encounters, and it left me with a weird sensation of hope. I later learned it did the same for him. Even though nothing is going on between the two of us, that day seriously kept me happy the whole week after. It was like some sort of weird afterglow. It's a memory that really does cheer me up.
I don't know if that was all that vivid considering it wasn't all that much that happened haha, but there you go!
this is a cute post!
i had a lot of really awesome days last summer, right before my girlfriend and i graduated. we'd skip class and play around newark, which was a college town with lots of piddly shit to do. we'd usually have acquired tips from services earlier in the day, and we'd blow them on burger king and vinyl from the record store, and then we'd make the long drive home with music blaring and the windows down. usually a long, fatass nap would follow. those were really good times. i'm glad you gave me the opportunity to think back on them.
Well I don't know about vivid detail, but if you were to go back and sift through my blogs, the 3 days I went to see AFI perform live and the awesome hilarity that ensued from the wicked road trips were the best days I've ever seen. I mean, I had SO MUCH FUN traveling with my cousin and her friend/roommate to see them play. Even though we spent HOURS driving around in the dark and getting kinda off track, those 3 days were so worth it.
Thank Meredith, I do feel a bit better now.
this is an excellent story! I'm very much excited to read part two, since these shows went so smashingly.
Ahaha, so that's where the lead singer of Gallows's comment came from during the St. Louis concert. It was something like, "And don't run the wrong way," but probably with at least two f-words wedged in the middle of it XD
This is the saddest blog entry I've ever come across. I feel so much empathy for you. I don't even know what to say for encouragement
No. But he said that I wouldn't know until mid-April at the absolute earliest. Also, they are only taking ONE person from UT. I'm not very hopeful. :/
That song fucking rules.
Also your job is balls. Did you get a call back from the DF interviewer?
WAY late comment but holyfuckingshityourock!
Call him. Sounds like you need to.
Very Pretty indeed!
=( I'm sorry, that's sad. Hopefully everything went okay.
What the fuck? I'm sorry.
And I agree with everyone else on the violence thing.
You really do need to kick that asshat in the head. Quite hard.
i agree with paige.
your employers and work mates should really appreciate you more.
sucks that the gm isnt really doing much about it, sorry to hear that there such asses
Punch him in his little fucking toothless face. Do it.
Really though, he seems like an ass. I'm sorry.
From your description, she sure didn't sound like a true friend.. Good on you, some people can really hard to stand up to. Sometimes friends do stupid things that kind of irk us but we're like ohh whatever.. but you definitely don't deserve to be controlled by someone else.
I feel like a motivational speaker haha
