Still so obsessed. Always reminds me of him & when we went camping for the meteor shower.
Stars - Grace Potter & the Nocturnals
Here’s the new video from Grace Potter & the Nocturnal’s excellent sophomore release, The Lion The Beast The Beat. A great video for an equally fantastic song. Crank it up, and prepare to think of lost loves.
Least Favorite Words
1. Any curse word
2. Misused/Condescending Labels (Gay, Retarded,)
5. abrevs! (adorbs, lol, gpoy, yolo)
So as I was leaving today we kissed goodbye.
But he grabbed my hand and pulled me in for another and said “I love you” in front of the bros."
My boyfriend is kind of the sweetest.
I was floating on my way to my friend’s apt.
Day 3 - I am looking forward to…
1. my boyfriend gets back from Hawaii tomorrow (he’s coming to my apt as soon as he possibly can, which is pretty romantic, I think)
2. making dinner at my friend’s apt. But first a trip to my fave awesomest grocer (You can message me & ask me about this grocer because it’s effing awesome if you live in Norcal)
3.Partying with two of the besties before the first day of classes (whitegirlwasted)
4.first day of classes (I’m a nerd)
Yay! I still can’t believe it!
This summer ended up being perfect!!
caraface-cateyes inspired me<3:
Day One: A Few Things About A-
-I love making lists.
-I love cats too.
-I kinda really love this cute boy named R-, you may have seen what he left on my doorstep today.
-I enjoy the sound of construction sites.
-I’m good at a great number of things, I just rarely talk about it.
-I am a vegetarian.
-I’m the best me that me can be, I always try my best. A bit of a perfectionist.
-I occasionally indulge in cigarettes, drugs and alcohol. (I have such a complicated relationship with these things because my family has a history of addiction.)
He keeps telling me how happy he’s been & how lucky he feels.
It’s so strange to have a boyfriend. I’ve been single so long.
E- invited to the beach this weekend, and I said I couldn’t go because I was camping. I didn’t tell him it was with R-. Idk why I couldn’t answer him.
The Person I like & Why I like them.
According to C.S. Lewis there are 4 Types of Love
This relates to family, and familiarity. Probably my sister. We’re so different yet all our time together has made us very close. It’s been hard since we’ve been at different schools/cities for most of the year.
I hate to play the best friend game, but one of my friends from high school has always been there for me. Especially since we’ve been attending the same college, gained more mutual friends, etc. I actually went running with her today.
Purely romantic love. Reckless and irrational, yet it makes life worth living. Currently R- takes this one.
I like to leave this one open. I’m too young to know true unconditional love. (If you’re Christian, like me, you’d know this as God’s love. But to each their own.)
I shouldn’t be sad. I haven’t txted him since our two goodbyes.
It was right the way things ended and I’m trying to keep it a clean break. Especially because I’m with R- now.
But I can’t help thinking how wonderful it was while it lasted. I’m calling it an affair. It’s oh so French. We had a quick burn- hot and exciting and reckless.
But I can’t help thinking how appropriate it was that on our night in we watched his favorite movie, Eternal Sunshine on a Spotless Mind.
He said he was a Joel and we agreed I was quite a Clementine. I wonder if he’ll want to forget me, a silly girl he met in California. Or if I tried to forget him by accepting R- so quickly.
But one thing is for sure, this Clementine is keeping her memory. It was beautiful while it lasted. I knew this day would come but I’m still a little sad.
I’ll be going to a restaurant tomorrow with R-, which is so surreal because last week I was there with A- for his goodbye lunch.
Things are for the best, but it was an affair to remember.
Summer is made for young love and I’m glad to have experienced such life and freedom.
- I don’t even know where to start.
