but actually if Chris attempts to propose to me with these cheesy things (ie. ring in champagne glass, on a holiday, in the middle of a public space, with photos/notes of our past, with musicians, ect) I will say no. I’m sure these people loved their engagement but it is very very much not for me.
Seriously always go back to school with more than I brought home. This time that includes spring clothes and two months of food. I don’t mind being at school. It can be enjoyable and most days I’m happy. But I hate the drive back. The drive home is always nice because I’m so excited for the break and I look forward to it all week and I have my Starbucks. On the other hand I dread returning to responsibility and the things I’m supposed to be doing. School just gives me too much anxiety to enjoy it.
But the weather us getting nicer and that make even the bad parts a little less bad.
I had one of the best shows of my life tonight. Proud of the scenes I had and my group. I’m glad my best friend got to see me perform, and on a night that I killed it too. Seriously, it was a great show. Better than most plays I’ve been in too. I really felt like an improviser tonight. I was in the zone. My mind and body were working perfectly with my cast and they were working with me as well.
I’m always proud to see your shows! (But happiest when you’re happy too!)
Memories of books
I didn’t get glasses until the fourth grade, so for a year or two I was just slowly becoming more blind.
Because my dad was getting his MBA, he got home late at night and our thing was going to the library on the weekends.
After my parents divorced I didn’t want to see my dad. He convinced me back with trips to Borders and the library in the same day and bi weekly meals of Kraft Mac and Cheese and hot dogs on white bread.
On car rides when I didn’t have glasses, I couldn’t read the signs so I started reading. One day my dad bought me the entire Nancy Drew collection. Once I got glasses, I still read in the car. He let me keep the overhead light on.
My dad took me to releases of Harry Potter books 4-7 and we saw every Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings movie together.
Somewhere in there memories of books got intertwined with memories of dad.
