[349] Walks in the Rain Aren’t So Bad

349

I went for a walk with my manfriend and his dog, at night, in the rain, and when we got back to his house, he was my boyfriend. So yeah…it’s official!

[337] I Don’t Even Know

337

In the last 24 hours I’ve been frisked at an airport, saw a man’s ass through holes in his jeans (he wasn’t wearing underwear), literally sprinted to my second flight gate only to be told it was delayed, flew across the country, ate at two of my favorite places in Syracuse, hung ornaments above a sink, arranged flowers, ran errands, wrapped boxes for the sole purpose of hanging them on the wall as decorations, reunited with my favorite dog in the whole wide world, drank wine, and laughed with my family, and more specifically my grandfather who was on fire with the jokes tonight. I’m exhausted, but it was an amazing day.

[221] Down Up Down

221

You know when your mood just feels off, and all you want to do is reset and start fresh? I was able to reset, and it came in the form of an hour long phone chat with my mom. I get these waves of homesickness that seem to come out of nowhere. It’s not a traditional homesickness, because I feel like Seattle is my home now, but I miss the people that made Syracuse my home.

My mom always knows what to say to calm me down and remind me how important this chapter in my life is, plus she’s really good at sending me snail mail and packages. My dad knows exactly when to send me an email that makes me tear up with just a few words. I’m sure Jacob would know when I need a cuddle sesh if he wasn’t a dog. And my sister sends me Snapchats that make me snort while I’m laughing.  I’ve got some pretty kickass people in my life.

[144] It Was Written in the Almonds

144

Wegman’s….a tangible heaven. I went there today, and practically died from an overwhelming sense of happiness. That amount of happiness may have been influenced by the fact I had my hair cut shortly before entering that earthly building of euphoria, but it was also probably because I’ve been dreaming of my reunion with Wegman’s for many moons. I’ve tried to express my love for this magical place, and I hope that I’ve done it justice.
