Month: October 2016
Oh hey guys. I’ve been terrible at writing lately. I know I know. Life has well…..been life. I’ve been busy and such. Blah blah blah. I know you guys have heard this before.
I have so much I want to write about but not enough to make a full post of anything. That being said, I am going to cover it all in this post! Let’s go:
~The Blogging Experiment 2.0: If you read my post The blogging experiment you would know what I am referring to. Go read. I am happy to report that my little social experiment has gone well. A group message was started between myself Paul, Jess, and Chris. Well Chris was kinda of forced into the group but he loves every minute of it. Don’t you Chris?? The four of us currently have a group message going through twitter. It is lovely and I don’t know how I lived without it. It’s a nice pick-me-up throughout the day to see messages pop up from them. I have also upped my “GIF game” thanks to them. Who knew talking to strangers could result in such a lovely friendship.
~Meeting Jess!: I had the pleasure of meeting Jess from the blog You’re Fine. I 110% wish Jess lived closer because we would be the best of friends. Jess was coming to DC to visit a friend and I creepishly mentioned that I lived nearby. We decided to meet up. I know… I know. Stranger danger. Don’t worry guys. We confirmed that we both were real people and not creepy middle-aged men. Jess and I hit it off instantly just like we were old freinds. It was lovely and I am hopefully going to visit her some time in the near future. Jess is a much more eloquent writer so I’m just going to link her post about her visit. CLICK HERE
~Family emergencies: Well, my family has been sort of a mess recently. There has been a lot going on. Luckily, everyone is safe and okay. Things are just going to be a bit of a mess for a while. That’s all I really have to say about this one. I want to thank everyone that reached out. You know who you are. It means the world to me.
~MY BEST FRIEND IS ENGAGED:
I can’t remember if I wrote about this or not. Oh well. I’ll write again. I was at another friends wedding in South Carolina when I noticed I had a missed call from my BFF after the rehearsal dinner. I assumed it must have been a butt dial because we never call each other. Our chosen method of communication is texting (I know, such a millennial thing to say). I checked my phone a little while later and say that I had a text from her saying to please call her later. immediately I assumed it had to be one of three things: She was engaged, someone died, or she was preggo. The last one was highly unlikely so I assumed it was one the first two. I tried calling her back but no answer. I fell asleep a woke up to a text saying to call her when I wake up. I called her back and it went a little something like this:
Me: hey is everything okay?! What’s going on
Amanda: Something happened yesterday…….
Amanda: Well….yesterday….Evan…..*long dramatic pause*
Amanda: He proposed!!!
Me: OMG OMG OMG OMG *JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND CRYING IN MY HOTEL BATHROOM**
So yeahhhhhh. My friend friend of 24 years in engaged. It’s so exciting but so weird. Segway to next topic…..
~ Everyone is growing up and then there is me: I think the title says it best. Everyone seems to be growing up and starting big chapters in their life. I can’t go more than a few days without someone announcing a pregnancy or engagement on Facebook, twitter, Instagram, you name it. There are so many of my high school classmates getting married and having kids. Hell, some are on their second child already. Then there is me….sitting over here on my couch eating chicken nuggets shaped like dinosaurs for the 4th night in a row. Oh well! I focused on a career instead of a relationship/family. If we are being honest my romantic life has always been a massive joke. I’ve had one and only one “serious” relationship and that was with YOU. If you’ve been following my blog long enough you know how that all ended. My dating life has always been a joke. I accepted that as a teenager. My AIM screen name was xajokeofromancex after all. Can you feel the teenage angst??? I mean I do have Not Boyfriend. He has been a great support over the last year and I’ve loved having him around . That being said, that whole thing is still a big old mess. Ohhh Meghan…….
~Turing 25: That is weird to write. In case anyone is wondering, my 25th birthday is in 8 days! WOO! I love birthdays…and Halloween. Lucky me, my birthday is the day after Halloween. This year I was a little worried. My birthday was on a Sunday last year so I was able to go see my friend and family back home. This year my birthday is on a Tuesday. EW. I have made some good friends in the last year and a half I have lived here. Part of me had that worry that I would still spend my birthday alone. Not boyfriend and his roommates made a promise I would not spend it alone. That makes me feel a lot better. We will see how next Tuesday goes.
I feel like I had more to write about but hunger has won. Time to go eat dino nuggets and watch Halloween movies.
Ps: here are some pictures from my wedding/ recent life adventures.OH YEAH! My hair is also somewhat pink. More to come on that soon. Enjoy.
This post will be brief. It will be brief mainly because I am not supposed to talk about the news I just got. I need to write something though. It’s how I process things. It’s how I deal with things.
How do you deal with the news that a loved one wanted to kill themselves. That they are in the hospital seeking treatment.
I was left a phone number to call. They want to talk to me. I don’t know what to say though. I want to be loving and supportive but I am at a loss for words right now. I’ll try to call tomorrow. I was always the brave one. The strong one. I have to put on a good face. Right now all I can do is cry. I don’t even know why I’m crying. I’m not happy I’m not sad. I’m neural. I’m numb.
I’m sorry for such a vague post but I was sworn to not talk about it. It’s not my business to talk about. I just needed an outlet. Please don’t ask any questions. I can’t answer them. Please just send good thoughts.
Happier posts coming soon.
