I took Friday off from work and had such a great day. I was so productive and it felt great. By noon I had already done laundry, mowed my parents lawn, done dishes (that had been sitting in the sink for an embarrassing amount of time), organized my collage and scrap papers, went grocery shopping, went to the bank, and paid bills. Friday night my friend Jenny called and we ended up going out to a bunch of places.
During the evening we ended up going to a couple bars. As we walked into the last one, I said “I hope I don’t run into anyone I know”, and Jenny agreed fully. It’s a common occurrence when you live in the same town you grew up in. You are talking with friends and then bam, you get a tap on your shoulder and it’s some person that you went to high school with. Sure enough, both Jenny and I have high school encounters and we didn’t even go to the same high school and we weren’t even in our respective hometowns either. I don’t want to sound like a snob, truthfully I am painfully shy, so when people tap on my shoulder and expect some big reunion they are highly mistaken. I am sure most people walk away feeling just as awkward as I do that they approached to begin with.
The night ended for me at a bonfire at some rich guys house. I have no idea whose house it was, a friend of a friend kinda thing. They had about eight garage doors and the house looked more like an apartment complex rather than a house. It felt very much like that scene in Garden State where they are sitting around the fireplace in the rich friend’s mansion, only we were outside the mansion at the bonfire. The picture above is a photo I took of my friend Jenny at the fire, and her friend Nicole behind her.
