no no, it’s not YOU, it’s ME…but i can’t break up yet. i swear every time i wanna leave (not actually et, but just avoid the masses), something keeps me here *cue some broken hearted 80s or mary j blige or adel song*. every time i’m super frustrated & done with my city & everything & everyone in it, someone says something nice or something awesome happens & i’m enamored again! it’s like my surroundings REFUSE to let me get full on midservice blues & be all woe is me!
for ex. today i was DONE. like shades on, earphones in about to just shut down & start countin down the days until my vaca, but as i was walking home i got stopped by someone i know who works at a local office of an ingo to chat. went into the office because a neighbor i hadn’t seen in a while worked there too. apparently y neighbor found my star trek hat (i let a neighbor borrow the hat, but after my neighbor died i was told it was uncouth to ask the fam for it back to didn’t think i’d ever be reunited with it again).
after leaving their office, i ran into 2 of my fav neighbors. a guarda i’m cool with told me i loss weigh (actually i did loose 2 lbs woooot). got recognized by a few people i don’t know at all (obvi they know me bc they said my name correctly). after finally getting home i helped a well-behaved girl i actually like with homework. it was low key fun teaching her directions & figuring out how to get from her school to her house in portuguese then english. her big sister was there so i also got an idea for where i could buy some quality weave in the city bc i MUST get my hair braided soonish.
as i was hanging out with other neighbors got a call from my coworker that they were back from their trip to macia…with my cashews!!!!!!!!!!! finally got to my house & on my way to take a shower got a call from my folks & we’re having a skype date tonite with the whole fam….
for better or for worse i’m in these streets until next august. after that moz, i will kiss you ever so softly on your eyelids, cheeks then hands, then go on to my next adventure….sowwy boo i don’t do long distance relationships :)
