I had been feeling bummed out because my best friend and I hadn’t hung out in a while. i guess I was feeling a little hurt because I thought that her new guy had replaced me. At the same time I felt childish bringing it up because I didn’t want to beg for her attention. But luckily today, as we did a little bit of shopping for her upcoming trip to the Philippines I summoned up the courage to bring it up. It was actually really hard because I didn’t want to blame her and I didn’t want to blame her new guy. But we talked about it. I realized that I can make more of an effort with reaching out through phone calls and she can make more of an effort with initiating hang outs. I’ve known this girl since i was five, and obviously relationships, of any kind, take time and work and perhaps we’d both forgotten that.
I love her so much. Besties for lyfe. <3
Kind of Nights I Live For
I had. SO. MUCH. FUN. last night.
That’s an understatement, actually.
I had so much fun that I wish I could replay last night in a montage type of slide show while playing “We are young” in the background.
It was that kind of fun.
I met the most fun and friendly group of people ever.
The evening started off with an elaborate meal served by equally delicious waiters who were recent USC film school graduates trying to make their way into the entertainment business.
After the meal and award ceremony for hospital’s residents, we made our way to The W hotel in downtown LA for the after party.
That’s where the real fun started.
We talked it up, laughed it up, oh and let’s not forget, drank it up.
I actually ended up meeting this interesting dude. He was there on a business meeting and once his clients left, he made it a point to come up to me and start talking to me. He was an attorney from the east coast who had graduated from Yale and had been working in LA for a couple years. He told me about his life and asked me about mine. At one point, we made a playful bet which resulted with me winning and him buying me a drink.
Interestingly enough, even though this dude had some cool things to say, I just didn’t find myself truly attracted to him. He was just a bit too old for me. I’m not ready to date people who tell me “You’re probably too young to remember this…but…”. He was a cool person but, no thanks.
So I thanked him for the drink and made my way back to the rest of the group, where we ended up laughing some more, chatting some more and drinking some more.
Around 2AM, a group of us made our way to 800 Degrees, a local pizzeria, for the most bomb pizza in all of LA where the spectacular pizza was only heightened by the exquisite nature of the company with whom I was with.
Let’s Party, Doc.
My best friend is a nurse at one of UCLA’s hospitals. Tomorrow they are having a big celebration for all the recent medical school graduates. My bestie has asked me to be her “plus one”. I’m excited because:
a.) there will open bar
b.) i’ll get to meet new people
c.) delicious free food
and…if I happen to choke or fall dangerously ill, I’ll be surrounded by doctors and nurses that can come to my rescue. :D
But most of all, because of our opposite schedules, I’m really looking forward to spending time with my best friend.
