Ready for the end.

So I leave for home on Sunday and although I am sad, I am ready for the end (and my own freaking bed!). I miss my housemate Todd, my dog Cooper, my family, my friends, oddly enough working, and I miss Australia!

I have a few fun filled days before I head back, tonight I’m hitting the clubs, tomorrow is Disneyland (again after I was sick the first time and went home early), Saturday is Laguna Beach and Orange County, and Sunday I pack for my late flight to Fiji.

I am going to miss the people I’ve met on my trip. Daniel, Gabe, Josh, Michael, Tyler, Korey, Laurence, Simon, Jed, Kylie, Donnie, and everyone else! It’s just been so amazing. They have all made this trip so special to me. Thank you so much!

I have made so many precious memories, met friends for life, networked, danced, lived, and loved every second of it. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated of my last few days traveling!

Revelations from the past

Tonight I went to the gym because I have been going to the gym a lot of recent. But since I find it better to lift heavy things and run on the spot with someone next to me, I had a gym buddy. Now I don’t know if this was a good idea or not, but I just went with it. A boy I used to date is now somewhat of a gym junkie, and consequently twice the size he was when I dated him. He offered to work out together, and I said yes.

Let’s rewind about 4 years, when I was crying because he twisted and turned everything around and made me feel like shit. I’ve grown up, and so has he. We worked out, laughed, made little jabs at each other, and of course, made remarks that obviously pointed towards the fact that yes, we had seen each other naked. It was kind of nice. It was nice not to look at him with fire in my eyes, and him look back at me without shielding his arms up from my angst. Keeping in mind, all of this is completely platonic.

Closure feels good.

I shouldn’t be allowed to sing.
The things I do when Britney comes on in the car and I’m all alone.

Originally recorded to send to a friend, who thought it was so funny I had to share it.

It Gets Better - I Promise

I filmed this video because I felt as though my blog post yesterday needed a little bit more explaining. I also promised a new video soon - so here it is.

Hey Mom, why didn’t you tell me? Why didn’t you teach me a thing or two? You just let me go out into the World. You never thought to share what you knew.

So I walked under a bus, I got hit by a train, keep falling in love - which is kinda the same. I’ve sunk out at sea, crashed my car, gone insane, and it felt so good I want to do it again.
