was reading Matty's
journal today, and...*watch out!* homeboy sounds pretty pissed!!!
He gets heat from all of us about moving to Hawaii and taking Cin away.
I know I've dished my share of jokes and threats, but in all seriousness,
I would be truly and deeply saddened should they ever move. Not only
would I miss Cin, but I would miss Matty just as much. I've known the
both of them for so long. We've been through a lot together, they watched
me grow (I feel like their "kid"), and they are very dear
to me...and from the very beginning, it was a known fact that they would
someday move. Though impending and inevitable, I've been preparing myself.
I guess I can't say much (even if I wanted to), since I was the first
to move away. *sigh* We've all talked about it many times, even as recent
as last night....it's definitely a toughie. I can see it from many sides...Cin's,
Matty's, mine, and my girlfriends'. Not to sound like I'm throwing my
girlfriends under the bus, but ultimately, it's not our decision to
make nor influence.
One advice my dad gave on marriage was to follow your husband wherever
he goes (whether we liked it or not). I know that sounds really old-fashioned,
but I fully accepted it. I mean, if Aric were to relocate to China,
I guess I'd be updating about the sights from the Great Wall.
Speaking for myself, I support whatever decision they make. I do realize
that our ritualistic dinners and hanging-out time would become far and
few. And as we all grow and change in our individual and hectic lives
(careers, babies, etc..)...I fear that we would slowly drift apart,
until one day you look back on old photographs and say, "yeah,
those were the best times. I wonder what they're up to now." *Eeek*...I
hope not!!! Now I'm just freaking myself out.
didn't do too much today. Hung around the house with my cousins, watched
TV, folded laundry, and played with Ashlyn. My mom, Tony, Wil, Eva,
and I went to Pasta Pomodoro for dinner. When we got back, Wil colored
my hair for me. I wanted to do something different to my hair since
hair-check these days, and complaining to Winnie
about my Ally McBeal (first season) flat dull look. I bought Garnier
Lumia's "Bloomin' Berry" (it's like a deep shade of red).
We colored Eva's hair with the remaining solution. After waiting 20
minutes and rinsing it out, I barely noticed a difference. My mom laughed
at me. Tomorrow, I'm going to carefully inspect it under the sunlight.
I'm considering cutting my hair short again...I'll wait till after Ivy's
know how they say that imitation is the biggest form of flattery? Well,
in this case, it's not... Copy-Cat Girl is at it again. I swear this
madness has got to stop. If she's not embarassed by her lack of creativity
and individuality, then I'm embarassed for her. *shake head* ...what
smile that makes everything okay
