i was so angsty last night. seeing 4 of the youth celebrate their quick upcoming graduation, after the graduating class of the college i went to --all my 'freshman' friends, graduated,-- lacking sufficient sleep, hopped up on coffee, and patience well tested by a tenacious 5 year old, oh and pmsing - the angst was there.
i had one of those near surreal moments, as people gathered into their family units as they started to leave, and there i was by myself. this is the year i've felt the most disconnected from the youth group. i get along with the high schoolers, and they listen well, but there's so few of them and we really lacked a cohesive leadership since our central leader, the youth pastor, took a pastorship at a church. (though we're really excited for him. additionally marcia said this would be her last year, and it's probably my last year too. so many mixed emotions.
i was just standing around watching people, trying not to look anywhere for too long.
then marcia's mom was like "audrey you should have been in the picture!" <3 (twas a dusty-butt is graduating family picture) they've adopted me. <3
anyway i forgot to mention...
at college graduation! i got to see some people! my friend, and fellow linguistics major, chris got valedictorian (along with 3 others. what a class of smart people! ^-^) .he's going to get an MA while studying in London.so excited for him. *_*
My friend Anya graduated summa c** laude, and it seems the paperwork is going for her to work in China sometime this year. *_* So I have to get my paperwork done. Adventure is calling to me. Yes, that was the other thing on my mind as I was standing alone. "I need to get out of here."
So I got on fb chat to talk to Bender, and Sean and Aaron were on too. I didn't argue with Sean, though I nearly did. I kind of forget that with him, people who were bad to people he loves - just hinting about them makes him angry. (i mentioned i saw rachel, and heard from her.. and he's like i already know who she's seeing, and i hate his guts! she's seeing this guy who used to date sean's sister. i remember this guy because 1.) they called him sushi (though this was 5 or 6 years ago, so i only remembered 'yoshi') and 2.) sean's sister was pretty mad after the breakup. i remember hanging out with them and trying to be cheerful and distracting because it's better to have friends around when things like that happen. )
Whew. Yeah. Talking to Sean is like navigating a mine field at times. I was fortunate he was easily lead around to other topics.
Bender's doing well. He's entertaining the idea of writing a final fantasy 1 story, and has given the characters names and deeper personalities. he even wants to do some character drawings. i told him to go for it. ^^;'
The best was talking to Aaron. Sounds funny, no? He brought up a few different topics, his topics, but since i haven't talked to him in months, it wasn't bad. He wanted to talk politics, so we had a mini rant about the president. I actually out ranted him, and he wanted to change the topic. So then we talked about his dog. Dogs are always good topics. <3
But I'm blathering on.
