I went to Joni's party.
It was a bit awkward at first but then I met up with Eliza from the Aggie, who is now a senior.
We talked about loads of stuff. How she and Watsonii now can't stand each other, all the new rules, how not much has changed and she detests senior year school-wise as much as I do. How useless it is. Seems none of the studious students enjoy senior year. Only the Abbis and those who align closer with her.
Said goodbye to Joni, charmed her cousin with talk of England, ate a bit, hung with Pam and Maddy and people.

Drove to Kristine and Elizabeth's (K and Zaz). Hung with the dog and the family.
We all played Apples to Apples with Jessica and her new boyfriend too. I did really well but I didn't want it to be about winning. Smiled to know that Don beat me at the end even though he's not really a game person.
I was invited up to K's room. We hung out and chatted of smaller things at first as she cleaned up her room.
Then she invited me to sit on her bed and our talk got deeper, I smile to acknowledge that it was through a mutual conversation about Grey's Anatomy that led to further talk.
Her crazy cat came up and joined us.
Soon enough we were sprawled sideways over the bed with our heads on pillows talking about love and how we're in the same position--we seem to have loads of answers, for everyone comes to us for relationship advice, yet we have not been in them. She hasn't done anything, no dating or anything. I've done little dating and minimal kissing, none of which I liked.
We talked about marriage and love and consent, our personal lives and fears and hopes and annoyances. It was lovely.
We wondered if our mothers downstairs were having similarly deep conversations. We didn't doubt they were.

When I was called down to leave we discussed that we were incredibly similar, on similar wavelengths and in similar places in life. We decided we needed a term for the sort of friendship we had. We laughed about it being "pod sisters" "poddies" or "podlings."
Our mothers were pregnant with us at the same time. They used to bump stomach's and smile about us. K was born a month after I was, almost exactly.
We laughed to know that "kindred spirit" didn't even particularly cover us.
It was just a wonderful experience.
I thought in the car that I used to read books like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and other books that spoke of friendships so early or before birth. I had always wanted it.
And I realized I totally have it. K and I might not have connected when we were kids, she outwardly horse-crazy and I inwardly but shy, but we definitely are now.

I listened to Mum talk about her just-post-college experiences and when all her adult friends came into her life.
I understood that I'm reaching that time. She went to college a year early and graduated when she was 20. She was meeting these life-long friends then.
I am nearly 19 years old. I was born later and did not go to college early, but my school is a three-year university course.
I am meeting the people who will be in my life for a long time to come. With our plans to house together, it only confirms the idea.
It just makes me smile.

Now I'm home.
I tugged my bed out from under my mess of stuff so at least I am not sleeping entirely on the floor, I have my bed too.
I finished Bad Company. I didn't hate the movie as much as I thought I would. I loved the end for Brooke Smith, her longer hair and winning smile.
I think it's read and bed-time.

Tomorrow there has to be cleaning and writing my sermonette for Sunday.
I was thinking tomorrow night I might want to take a nice long bath, possibly write while I'm in it.

Tonight was nice.

  • 16:03 Ziggy just came over to pick up his coat but I didn't know he was coming and then he was at my bedroom door and I said, "What the FUCK?" Bad
  • 16:05 But I am wearing the most comfortable socks in the world and my Docs, and things feel nice.
  • 16:31 I finished doing random cards. My cards make so little sense. *I* make so little sense. Laughter!
  • 03:42 I tugged my bed out from under the pile of junk, so I will have something to sleep on. Ah less soreness. Tomorrow has to be good.
  • 14:35 Now that I have my bed out again and had to put it away, I discovered that there's something I love about putting my bed AWAY after use...
And that's a wrap, folks! Kupokweh!
