In fact here is a list of parties I went to and then I will explain them a bit more:
1. Dance Party on Thursday
2. Fall Party at the Elementary school I do my field experience
3. Brady's Party
4. Saturday. :)
Well, I already told you darling readers all about the one on Thursday, so I guess I shall start with Friday and work my way through the weekend!
WARNING: this might be a long one, so settle in with some coffee and a doughnut or cinnamon roll and enjoy the morning (or whatever time it is there.)
Friday. Friday was fun! It was long but it was fun! I had to work at six a.m. so I did that, and then after work I zipped over to my apartment change out of my sweats and put on REAL clothes. Then I headed over to where I do my field experience.
When I got to the classroom I am in, the teacher was just walking out and she was all, "I am going to go pick up my kiddos." So she left the room and I was just chilling.
me being me decides.
I am going to have fun with this.
This could be fun.
So I actually end up standing in the back off to the side where it I wouldn't be seen straight off.
The kids are all filing in and sitting down, and this one little girl as she pulls out her chair kind of just glances towards the back.
HER FACE WAS PRICELESS!!!!!!
All of a sudden I was bombarded with a bunch of nine year olds hugging me.
Here is one conversation that happened (at the same time as 20 other conversations)
"yes it is."
"But miss... You're here!"
"Yes I am"
"But it's friday!"
"SHE ISN'T SQUARE!!"
So we had the party. I learned that on the teacher's end, even a mom run party is chaotic, even if it is VERY organized.
Which is a GREAT lesson to learn!
Then I got invited to a party from one of my friends.
But I had to work.
So I worked, and Mason and I finally finished Bourne Legacy.
Then I went to the party, where my friend had HIDDEN some pizza for me and I was EVER SO grateful! :D
Of course there was the traumatic moment in the movie where there was an EVIL ZOMBIE CLOWN!!!
I just about died.
Then I left because there was this person who was there that I LITERALLY cannot stand so I went to another friends house and sketched.
I had gotten home at like 1:30 or 2:00 am but had to wake up at like 6:30 to leave at 7:00 cause my brother was having an audition at this college in the nearest big town. (Not my college cause he isn't as cool as me)
So. I drove to town which is like 45 minutes away. Ended up playing Monopoly with the admission Councillors (who all kept thinking I was an incoming freshman.). I won second place. (not too shabby!)
After he finished his audition, the school provided this oober fancy lunch.
After lunch I went and chilled at this little coffee shop called coffee Ethic. It was SO GOOD. I had chai (which was like my third or fourth caffeinated hot beverage.) and just sat there doing some homework and chilling.
Then I drove to the mall and met some friends. We went trick or treating in the mall. I gotta say... sometimes looking young, really has its perks! :D
Then then then!! GUYS GUYS GUYS!!!! I WENT TRICK OR TREATING FOR LIKE THE VERY FIRST TIME!!!!! LIKE ACTUAL HOUSE TO HOUSE TRICK OR TREATING AND IT WAS SO FUN YOU GUYS!!!!! THEY GAVE FREE CANDY!!!!!!! IT WAS GREAT!!!!!
Then we went to Chipotle. Now see. They were having this deal that if you wore a costume your "boorito" was only 3 dollars. THREE DOLLARS!!! AND I GOT GUACAMOLE AND DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO PAY FOR IT!!! So we went there and got dinner.
Pretty sure people were looking at the four of us girls and were like, "Wut." Cause we were actually singing little bunny foofoo. No. Joke.
As we were eating we decided that we were going to go dancing. None of the girls had ever gone before so I sat there and laid out the rules. And the emergency plans and what to do if there was a guy bugging them.
So off dancing we went.
We had so much fun!
After a few hours of that, they decided to go to Steak and Shake and I just all. Nope. Bedtime.
So I drove in this INCREDIBLY thick fog. Like SUPER thick.
On Sunday I woke up (somehow) on my own at 7:30 am. So I drove back into town and went to this church I have been wanting to try, and then went over to a friends house for lunch and we just sat there and gossiped. It was so much fun!
But then I had to go back to work.
Where I had a sugar crash and a caffeine drop.. and was trying SO HARD not to fall asleep.
This morning at work (I get to work at 6 am) we are still playing zombie apocolypse training. And I got to shoot my boss this morning and I hit him.
IT WAS SO EXCITING.
He didn't think I was going to look up.
But I forgot about how context is sometimes REALLY important. And I was very excited so I messaged Brady and was all:
"I JUST SHOT MY BOSS!! HE DIDN'T THINK I WAS GOING LOOK UP AND THEN I SHOT HIM CAUSE I HAD SEEN HIM!!!"
A few seconds after I had sent that to him, I reread my sentence and was more like:
"I just realized how that sounded... I shot him with a nerf gun... not a real gun... It's a game..."
And Brady, who has a great sense of humor replies:
"I was going to say.... EMILIE THAT KILLS PEOPLE!!!"
Moral of that random little story is: CONTEXT IS OOBER OOBER IMPORTANT!!!!
Okay time for deep thoughts.
Have you ever wondered about a friendship? Like wondered how it changed you and what life would be like with out that person?
Lately I have been thinking on this.
And it is with one friend in particular.
And I realized just how MUCH literally HOW MUCH they impacted my life.
If I had not met them. I would not have moved out of my apartment, I would not be as self confident as I am now, I would not have met one of my now best friends, I probably would have gone nuts last year, I would not have learned little tricks, I would not have gotten to choreograph the dance I did, I would not have learned that I can walk for four hours and be fine, I would not have known everything about the town I live in now that I do now, I would not have had so many tacos, I would not have made it through last year I don't think, because sometimes when I was going through the time that I didn't have much food I got whatever it was that I was eating from them. I would not have learned my capacity to love. I would not have written the things I did, or the poems I did, or gained self confidence in that as well. I would not have ever have shot a gun (he made me try). I would not have had the best college night ever. (I think I wrote about it if not... I will at some point write about the best college night ever.) I would not have learned that brown sugar is actually delicious in pasta sauce, or that venison is also delicious. I would have never gotten to ride a roller coaster at the start of an ice shower. I mean. When you look at a friendship and just see all the little connecting lines to who you are now. It's truly incredible. He helped me get a back bone. He taught me how to have pompous victory. He got me to realize that I don't have to be strong ALL the time. That it is okay to cry. That relying on friends is not a bad thing. That having someone there is not a sign of weakness. He just... was and is wonderful. And I am truly, beyond a shadow of a doubt happy that I met him. I would have met him again, because I like how my life has changed. Yeah bad things happened, but that is life.
So sir, if you are reading this. My life would have been worse had I not met you. I am so GLAD and THANKFUL that I met you.
Here is a FANTASTIC commercial that Brady sent me this morning. IT IS HILARIOUS.
