Weekend bullet points:
**Um, I love traveling by train. Seriously. Can I do it all the time?
**Didn’t take my laptop with me so couldn’t write on the train. But read and slept a lot.
**Good old Rocky Mount, NC (But she lives in Greenville) and my bestie Jackie!! It was as if I just saw her yesterday…
**But I hadn’t so we spent all night talking and catching up.
**And went to see the Time Traveler’s Wife…Jackie hadn’t read the book but she will now! (Review to come later)
**Love her apt, love her dog, love HER!
**Sat morning, the forecast said Scattered T-Storms but I convinced her we should drive to the beach anyway.
**I LOVE COUNTRY ROADS!! AHH THE PEACE!!
**Funky van in front of Starbucks.
**More talking and catching up.
**The weather turned out to be PERFECT!
**Wait…who’s that singing “Careless Whispers”? (Turns out it’s Seether!)
**Good times at the beach…loved the calm waters…even more talking and catching up.
**Jackie’s bf offered to make us dinner…Chicken parm and apple-pineapple pie. Yum!
**We wanted to go dancing…Realized we haven’t officially had a drink together since we turned 21 so we HAD to do that.
**Drinks in NC ARE SO DAMN CHEAP! Seriously. I wanna move there.
**Obnoxious, stupid bartender who was actually really cute…Such a shame that she was an idiot.
**Jackie got buzzed…So friggin hilarious.
**We went to this bar called Tank…uh, tanked is what it did…so we went across the street…You’ll never believe what it was called…
**Jackie and I danced like we owned that place…Did not let a single guy dance with us…One guy actually asked us if we were lesbians which was hilarious considering we weren’t the only two girls in the place NOT grinding up on each other. (Read: We can actually dance)…Danced till 2…
**I somehow managed to drop my phone in the toilet…FML
**Sang at the top of our lungs on the drive back…I finally got the big deal about Britney’s song “If you seek Amy” (Yes, I now know it’s not written that way, hence the controversy and I seriously love that song now)
**Stopped at Sheetz…I got a grilled cheese samwich and fries (Where the fuck did my diet go?) and Jackie got a pretzel with nacho cheese.
**More singing at the top of our lungs.
**BREAK OUT THE YEARBOOK.
**Time to drive back and say goodbye 🙁
It was such an amazing weekend…I was very tempted to stay and hide out from the world. I can’t express how glad I am to have reconnected with Jackie…it’s as if a part of me was missing all these years.
I’m also going to have to go back for a week and just take pictures…So many gorgeous sites…so little time. To see some of the pix I took, you can go here.
I also did a lot of thinking (Esp after a convo I had Thursday night) and came to a lot of realizations…May or may not share…but my life is gonna change.
How was your weekend? I am SO jealous of everyone that went to the NYC Meetup…I hear my ears should’ve been ringing because some people *coughMaxiecoughJaimecoughJohn* couldn’t stop talking about my boobs!
♥ to everyone!
