the weekend 9/14-15-16
first, an update on that magazine I wanted to join on campus - the first meeting was today :')
everyone was super cool and nice and unique, and the staff all seemed approachable and passionate about their respective sections of the magazine. it's nice to watch people speak about things they care about..
a lot of the projects/topics discussed were things that I /know/ I have the experience and interest to work on, which was really encouraging - I spoke with the head copyeditor about helping her out (she was enthusiastic about my interest and complained that no one ever wanted to help workshop pieces lmao), and also talked to the editor of the creative writing section about this interview project I thought was super duper cool and they needed someone to take over working on.
might just......throw myself headfirst into this club, honestly. not gonna screw around and just gonna Go For It, ya know? they take all kinds of pieces, regardless of age, and out of all my years of junk I definitely have enough pieces I'm proud of to submit old things whenever I don't have anything new I'm happy enough with to submit. This might be......highly ambitious, but I'm going to try to submit something every 2 weeks, whether its something new or old.
guys, I'm really looking forward to involving myself with this club. it'll be nice to meet some new people with similar interests, and I just love to write and engage with other people's writing and this is probably the best place on campus for me to do that. also they have a cool logo :"D
other than that meeting - my boyfriend came up on friday to stay the weekend with me here!! :"> I've missed him so much.. he took a gap year and has found himself two(!) awesome (and intense) jobs, so I've been really starving for extended time with him. he got me to watch 2 eps of Sherlock with him, and we cuddled a lot and spent a lot of time talking about the campus culture and why I'm doing so..poorly here lmao, among other things.
when he first arrived, I told him I had a surprise for him and put a mini reeces cup in his hand
after he opened his eyes, he just hugged me tight and whipped over his backpack to pull out.....a gigantic bag of reeces he brought for me.
to which I opened a drawer and pulled out a similarly sized bag of reeces that I had planned to pull out and give him after he ate the mini cup
I....am overwhelmed sometimes - you know that moment when you're just struck with the knowledge of how much someone else /loves/ you, and you feel that welling up, just looking down on yourself and seeing their love in yourself? that's how much he loves me, and I try so hard to show it in return.
in conclusion, we are my favorite, and he makes me feel so, so happy and strong. I know that I can do better now that his breath has been in my room, and my campus. because he's been here once now, I can just..draw on that energy every now and then.
feeling charged up, rested, and loved - gonna do my very best to face the week, and the one after that!! fight on my friends !!!
