Best advice in my life.
Reasons AT is my show of shows.
But I just got to it today. The goal was to write for an hour and this is as far as I got. Sorry for the shittiness.
I liked a boy yesterday. I don’t rightly know the chances of him reading this, but I’m trying to be honest, and to be honest this is the only thing I felt beside nauseous yesterday. He was just kind of there when I woke up.
When I woke up I was still drunk. I had the feeling that my roommate was angry about something— maybe he was yelling—, but by the time I got out of my bed and came downstairs the only people there were this guy and a passed out rugby player on my couch.
We talked, maybe. My house was pretty clean for hosting an impromptu party the night before. There was still a cup here and there, the lights were out in the basement, the floor seemed sticky with the watermelon Kool-aid that no longer occupied the empty Jim Beam bottle on the pong table, but of everything that comprised yesterday morning I still can’t find the sounds to them. I remember him smiling at breakfast and it giving off the weird warmth that people expel when they smile genuinely, like they’re breathing clean air. It’s the smile of a profound sadness finding contentment. We didn’t actually pay for breakfast— I didn’t get anything to eat until we got back to my place. I was still kind of drunk on the drive to, walk down the block, drive back. He fixed my drink when I spilled it beating eggs.
It may seem like I’m projecting, filling in the silence with the pictures of a perfect situation, but I’m not. By looking at his face you can see his depression: over-generalizing, cynical, vacant with an eternalized loneliness. He hates almost everything I hold dear to life and he’s straight. If there’s anything I’m not, it’s delusional, but for one day I met a guy who was probably as lonely and blindly searching as I am, he had a warm smile, we got breakfast. I don’t get that everyday.
