winter break over.

i haven’t seen vincent since we broke up almost two years ago.
it’s nice that even after everything, the friendship is still there.


so i was telling joey,
“so vincent comes into the living room and my mom is carrying my little baby cousin
and he goes, ‘whose baby?’ and i go, ‘mine.’
dude! you should have seen the reaction on his face.”

and joey goes,
“dude, you should have said,
‘uhh.. it’s yours. that’s why i asked you to come here.'”

i was really sad to go.

annaliza gave me the coolest friggin’ gift.

two exams, two papers. done.

all of this “oh i miss you veanne! we should hang out!” drivel,
but none of my butthead friends will come visit me in sactown
because “sacramento sucks ass.”
