First off, cyber-hugs and cookies for my fabulous commenters: Marta, Sabrina, Marina (I don't wear earrings unless I really feel the need, and I paint my nails on occasion, and I have dyed my hair more times than I can count), Jess (I am using your suggestion for "why today is awesome, thanks!), Aunt Shana, Alycia, Rebecca, Joey, James, and Alexander (it doesn't matter how well you write, start a blog anyway. And come back and tell me about it, and I'll read it).
Today started with me feeling terrible physically. I took a nap, woke up around two, got ready and made my FTFK video, which I thought came out rather well.
Things started picking up around five thirty when my good friend Taylor came over. Me and him have generally been super close since the summer before twelfth grade and we just sort of click. He is genuinely one of the sweetest guys I have ever met. Like everything he does just exudes adorable. But I hadn't seen him since graduation, so I texted him the other day telling him I missed him, and we made plans.
Basically he showed up at my house, and we spent some time catching up. We talked about our plans for next year (we're both staying local, thank goodness) and how his girlfriend, Dylan, is in Michigan and what we would have done differently with our senior year if we had the chance. It kind of makes me want to tear up just thinking about it.
Then my dear friends Amy and KTG$ (her name is Katie, but we all call her KTG$, so that's what she will go by in this blog) showed up, and made everything that much more wonderful. We sat around and played Never Have I Ever, made a Facebook profile for my dog, and other shenanigans.
Then we went to Chili's, blaring Metro Station's "Seventeen Forever" the whole way there, where we ordered Southwestern Eggrolls (my absolute favorite, ever) to share and played Truth or Dare. Which was hysterical. KTG$ had to spank everyone. And I had to share my porn habits. It was grand. We followed up the eggrolls with a brownie sundae (which was nothing but glorious, if Jared Padelecki were a food item he would be that sundae) and more smiles.
Taylor had to leave shortly after (but with promises to see each other again soon) but Amy and KTG$ and I watched the Sam Winchester sex scene in "Heart" and then the episode where Jo gets kidnapped by the creepy rapist ghost and we bitched about boys. Not really any specific boys (except for on Amy's part) just boys in general. And then KTG$ massaged Amy's knee.
Oh and we ate Oreos. With peanut butter. And milk. And then my dad walked in and asked for the peanut butter back. And Amy handed it back to him all creepy and awkward-like. Another Patronus moment. This day was full of those.
Anyway. They went home a short while ago, and I am filled with nothing but satisfaction, as I sit here on my couch, listening to Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift, generally, serves as my life soundtrack only when I feeling either angsty or content. She doesn't really suit any other emotions, for me. Amy left behind this book from the 1960's about how to throw great parties. Which, I'm sure, will provide great entertainment for me tonight while I try to overthrow morning nap-induced insomnia.
I love my friends. And everything about this life that I lead. My Aunt Shana made an excellent point (well, this is just one of many "excellent points" that she has made) while we were eating at Five Guys last Friday. She mentioned how it's actually a good thing that I don't have a boyfriend at this point in my life. Because there will be nothing stopping me from getting on a plane and pursuing my dreams. And it applies to so many other aspects of my life... It's just overwhelming how truly wonderful things are for me right now. This is just one of those times where I wonder how I can ever be sad, when the good outweighs the bad, by an incredible amount... Okay. I'll stop babbling now. Goodnight readers. I love you dearly.

Why today is awesome: Why ISN'T today awesome? Dear god. Okay. I'll pick one. Southwestern Eggrolls. They are too beautiful to be of this world.
