He kept the ugly poster I made for him for his high school graduation, the paper mache Keroppi, and the friendship bracelet I made him three years ago.
I didn’t really expect him to, and I was so surprised when I saw it all in his room.
I’m glad we caught up yesterday.
Today, I was listening to the morning radio on the way to work, and this girl had to answer more questions right than Afrojack to win whatever prize. All of the questions were multiple choice, with three possible answers.
Third question : What is the square root of 49?
Her answer : Uhh… C. 8?
… I was so sad….
I don’t know if we would’ve stayed in contact—to be honest, we probably wouldn’t have. I find myself forgetting about it all for extended periods of time til something brings me back again, like your birthday.
I think you would’ve had a hell of an adventure your first 2 years in college, at your dream school.
Happy belated. I promise I’ll visit soon.
"NICE THOUGHTS CHALLENGE. Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and send this to 10 of your favorite followers."
Tagged by adinfinitumetultra. Why’d you do this to me?!
Just kidding. Kind of.
1. I care a lot about things and people. Probably more than I should. But when someone tells me that I care too much or that I need to stop caring, I figure what’s the point in anything if I don’t give a fuck?
2. I’m pretty detail oriented, so I help people remember the little things that easily get forgotten. I really like administrative and logistical stuff—I’d make a fantastic secretary yo.
3. I don’t really give up on people.
4. I try to be the one who is always smiling and easygoing. I try to be the person that everyone can get along with.
5. My hugs are pretty nice if I do say so myself.
Oy it’s hard thinking of nice things to say to myself.
But no, I’m not gonna send this to ten people, haha.
So I know it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, but today I climbed to the top of the jungle gym at highland ranch park for the second time! I have a slight fear of heights, and to be honest, I really just don’t like not being able to completely control a situation. This time around wasn’t as much of a struggle as the first, but I definitely was still a little freaked out. Sigh.
For my fall board retreat, we went to Belmont Park, and I didn’t think the sky ropes course would be that bad. I was completely secure in my harness and not that high off the ground, but not too long after the ropes I was walking on got a little shaky, I freaked out. I got to one corner, and I just started crying and crying, embarrassed yet still unwilling to fully accept anyone’s help.
So here’s to pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and accepting that I can’t control every situation and that a little instability is okay once in a while.
