Lemme start with the great note of: my friend got a great job with her specialization, and I wish her epic luck in it!
Seeing how that happened, she didn’t let my mood sag on Thursday too much, since I, in the meantime, received quite a bit of bad news, and was ready to not go anywhere due to it. But she broke her good news, and asked me to come, since there’s a cause for celebration, and I figured I don’t want to be the rain on the parade, so I smacked up my smile, decided I’m not gonna let shit ruin the streak of positive mood, and… well, slept fitfully all up until Friday. I do that. If I know I need to go somewhere, even if it’s not early at all – I’ll be waking up very often, checking the time, trying to fall asleep again, and so on.
My Friday began with running errands, of which there weren’t many. Mostly just snail-mail. Had a bookmark, and a bunch of bracelets from various contests to send out. I’m happy people received my witcher bracelets, simpler, in a sense, but even more beautiful in their more even pattern, so very well. Oh, and, I’m very sorry, friends, I didn’t yet send out the postcards, I kinda want to finish them all before I do. Also need a couple of things from some other people to make one package to Bulgaria happen. I got you a panda-themed treat tho! (not eatable, but fun)
After that I just sat home waiting, and it didn’t take long. From the very start the trip got great. For one, I didn’t forget to get some data for phone, so I wasn’t cut off from other people I felt like having in my pocket. Then, my friend didn’t forget to make me a bootable usb for my great need of windows reinstalling tomorrow. Not only that, she said I can keep the usb, since it’s slow and she doesn’t use it much. Well, I will certainly happily keep it!
Her radio was blasting the good old 80s hits, which we knew almost every song, so there was singalong happening, especially on the way back. And the weather was great, like crisp warm spring is supposed to be, I guess!
We left her car at the service, where she needed some work done on it, and took a… what are they called? The buses with electric lines? We took one of those to one of the bigger malls around. And I got motion sickness. Not only did it feel like going in a ship, due to all the actual motion, but the smells of everyone wearing different perfume, stench of gas or diesel, general exhaust smells wafting in with every opening of the door… Which meant she had to take a ride back alone, to pick up her car, and then come back pick me up. Yes, I am a terrible friend to have. But you know what? I have all the best friends.
The mall itself went great. I found most of what I needed, and the rest we decided I’ll order to her, where she can pick it up, and bring it over on her next visit, since we live in different towns, and I live in a very small one, so shipping here costs a few bux, and we’ve no decent stores to begin with. The best part of the mall was finding Joseph Seed glasses in one of the store, my friend really wanted those, so I was happy to help out and snag a pair.
On the way home music was even better. She, being a meteorologist, told me all kinds of stuff about lightening, shit one doesn’t just know, I feel, so not only did I have tons of fun, I got me some edumacation too.
I really love how majority of my friends are either extremely helpful and supportive people, or just mad inspiring. Or all of it in one. I hope I can be as good a friend as they are to me.
