That's okay, I haven't been on in a while either actually. SO busy at work now.
It was great! The Phillies game SUCKED but the Red Sox won that day. We had a little party at my sister's with cake and BBQ and such, and I got lots of sweet presents. Starbucks gift cards, books, Red Sox gear/tickets, and Brian got us tickets the Celtics/Knicks game tomorrow night at MSG!
Oh, and why the hell is the cold weather back? It sucks!
It was amazing! Ugh, I'm SO happy for my city. They can finally start to heal again.
My parents got me new Rainbows sandals, a preorder of the new vampire weekend album, and some giftcards so I can buy new clothes And my roommates got me some great stuff too and on my birthday some friends bought me nachos and drinks. Great day/weekend! Sorry I haven't been on the forum for days. HOPE YOU HAD AN AMAZING BIRTHDAY!!!!! !!!!!!!!
How was your birthday/birthday weekend/whatcha get?
Hah, that's always fun. I hope someone buys my breakfast tomorrow.
Any good presents?
And this situation in Boston. It keeps getting crazier and crazier and scarier and scarier and I just really really really hope they find this dude before he hurts anyone else. My city needs to start the healing process, and all this is just stalling it. Bostonians deserve to sleep easy. Bostonians deserve to be able to walk out their fucking door, for christ's sake. The city will rebuild and become even stronger and better than before. But right now things have slowed down, almost to a halt because of a 19 year old psychopath. I just hope everything is resolved peacefully, more devastation in my hometown might make me have a panic attack. :/
But anyhoo, birthday tomorrow, which I will enjoy fully.
Aw boo! And the weather keeps fucking changing it was originally supposed to be like 75 on mine but it's like 64?
That'll be fun! Have fun at the Phillies game!!!
On my actual birthday I have 4 straight classes sadly. But afterwords I don't really know. My roommates are making a cake I think and I'll probably get some presents. Then after that I'm not really sure. I'm bad at planning things. The other day one of my friends told me she's going to "pour alcohol down my throat" but we'll see if that actually happens. I don't have class on fridays though, so actually I probably will drink because why the fuck not?
I meant to ask you if everyone was okay I'm so glad they are!!!! !! I still can't believe what happened. Everyone is coming together though in such amazing ways. Boston will bounce back, no doubt.
Oh my god Marisa. It was so horrible. When I first saw those videos yesterday afternoon I almost lost my shit. I had friends, family that went to the Boston Marathon and my mind immediately went to the worst. Thankfully everyone is peachy keane, just shaken up. And I just had to be here with them, so I drove up here this morning to spend the week in this amazing city.
I posted on Tumblr what it's like here. Down but not broken. I talked to dozens of people today. Some I knew, some I'd never seen before in my life. The people I do know, when you lock eyes with them and see they're okay, you just want to hug them forever with a serious lump in your throat. People will dust themselves off, I'm sure of that. This city's like that. But right now, everyone just sort of feels shocked and violated.
I'm going to hope all the problems they're still having is just normal beginning of season stuff. Gonna tell myself that anyway. Ignorance is bliss. Chase keeps doing pretty well though
Any idea on what she's planning for you? Your birthday is record store day I'm so excited for record store day. And I think I'm actually having people over to celebrate on saturday so we'll both be celebrating that night.
My weekend was pretty good Walked around the city a lot enjoying the weather, saw lots of friends, went out to brunch with my family for my brother's belated birthday.
My monday and tuesday have been so long I don't understand how it's only tuesday it feels like it should be may right now.
