1. Arcade employee - I would empty the quarters when the machines got too full and smoke with my boss in the alley talking about life choices. Still today, my most favorite job ever had the pleasure of doing.
2. Video store clerk - it was a job that was gifted down to me from my older brother. It was this hole in the wall video store and my brother was the only employee, so when he graduated high school I got to take his place. I just watched movies all day long, fast forwarded the popular movies when people wanted to check them out to be a dick, and collected every single movie poster we took down. I have so many movie posters in storage. It’s awful.
3. CD store clerk - there was a time when people actually bought CDs, I swear. It happened. Even cassette tapes.
Waffles are essential to my life. Breakfast food in general really.
Day one and week 5 in my urban garden. So many greens!
My room is outta control.
Today i was talking to my tattoo artist about relationships and he was telling me about his buddy thats been single for a really long time. I told him i’ve been single for years (emphasize years). He was actually surprised. And not surprised as in the stereotypical, “oh a girl like you shouldn’t be single!” kinda crap. But he actually sat back for a second and said, “you’re so laid back and chill, like you’re really comfortable with yourself and your life i figured you were in a stable relationship.” And i just shrugged and said i date, but i haven’t had a relationship in a really long time. He smiled and went back to the conversation, i dropped the subject all together.
Single people can also feel comfortable with themselves and their life. Being in a relationship is not the only way for you to find yourself and to be happy with yourself. Who you choose to share your life with is just another extension to who you’re becoming. Great or small. It’s not the give all or end all of you. Me without a relationship doesn’t make me a sad pitiful soul. It just makes sex infrequent. Luckily, i have two hands.
I went and saw Tegan & Sara live tonight with my lady friends. It was FUCKING phenomenal. I had a perfect view. I fell in love with The Courtney’s and discovered the band Lucius. Perfect night for me you guys.
