I had so much fun
A few weeks ago I had the awesome opportunity to visit Ireland. I absolutely loved it. The country is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen and the people are nice. I spent a week traveling around the country and I must say that I will definitely return. Good times!
I want to tell him how much I miss sleeping beside him because I feel safe. Even though I can’t sleep because I’m scared that when i wake up he’ll be gone. I want to tell him that I watch his chest move up and down as evidence that I still have time left with him and we still have memories to make. I want to tell him that I’m dreading the goodbyes more and I wish they didn’t have to happen. I want to tell him that he calms me and the world seems to stand still when he sleeps. I don’t worry about what’s out to get me or my stresses because he knows what to do even when I can’t find the words. I wish I could tell me all the things he means to be and maybe one day I will. But for now I’ll just watch him sleeping.
It’s interesting how soothing it can be to catch up with old friends. I’ve heard someone say that you make your lifelong friends in college and high school and I have to agree. These past few days I’ve gotten to hang out with two friends I’ve known for almost a decade. There isn’t the awkward “getting to know you” conversation because we know each other already. And because it rarely happens that we see each other (once a year for one), that makes the time more appreciated. You can’t take people like that for granted because they are rare today.
I was recently in Charlotte, NC and I had the chance to try the Midnight Diner for the first time. I was in town for a presentation and my friend and I decided to eat afterwards. The food and service were amazing. I had the best macaroni and cheese I’ve ever had in my life. The banana pudding was amazing as well. I loved the atmosphere and the service. Definitely have to go back sometime.
I’ll admit that I like to send long paragraphs. I’m not a fan of being rejected in person so I sometimes hide behind words so that it doesn’t hurt as bad. Needless to say, there’s a special place in my heart for the guys who’ve taken the time to thoughtfully respond to my paragraphs. And one day I want to settle down with someone who will do that.
