Today was one of the best days of my college life and you can tell; I rarely post pictures of myself on here.
I slept in, had the most students I’ve ever had in one day at the writing center, listened to guest speakers in my sociology of sexuality class and preached strong opinions I had about discrimination here towards gay people. I think I talked for 3-4 full minutes off a hand-raise. It this back and forth discussion between me and the panelists, all in front of my classmates. It was the first time I ever felt like I was in an institution of higher learning.
I then got a huge weight lifted on my shoulders and in that process I figured out a lot about self worth and not letting people’s view of me change how I act or how I present myself. I carried this vibe with me the whole day.
I enjoyed talking with my roommate’s parents, who were in my apartment when I returned. I cooked food (I never do that). I got to see video of one of my best friends in having fun in Rome and still making me laugh. We practiced for a house show we’re playing tomorrow and we fixed problems in one of my songs and now it sounds so much better. We then went to celebrate a friend’s birthday in her apartment and just ended up sitting around talking and being idiots. And it was with people I love and some people I don’t know so well and some people who weren’t feelin’ me and I loved it all anyway.
We came back to the apartment, acted weird and goofy some more and then somehow this impromptu gathering occurred around my computer and I showed everyone a ton of Sloan videos and everyone liked it.
I should have been doing my big assignment this whole time; it’s due tomorrow. But I don’t care because today is a great day and I’m glad I chose to iron my clothes this morning because of it.
