Getting Up and About
It was 9:43 AM when I woke up today. Well-rested unlike my other Senior brothers who had just come back from Grad Night a couple of hours ago. I was still feeling groggy. As the sun pierce through my window, I was able to recover from my daze. I looked at my side, my phone rang. A text received, multiple texts received. I realized that I told my girlfriend that I’d wake up as early as I could. A disappointment on my part. But I wouldn’t disappoint her anymore. I’d read the Hunger Games and finish it as I promised. I managed to find the book after I had forced myself out of bed. I began to read. I’d warm myself some OK Chinese leftovers and I was set. Home alone wasn’t so exciting. The only things that I could have done between the time I woke up to the time I saw my girlfriend were read, play video games, and sleep. I ended up doing a little bit of reading, video game playing, and sleeping added with the texting of my girlfriend. I had to find a way to kill time. I missed my girlfriend a whole lot and was anxious to see her today. I finally received a reply from my girlfriend as I left to pick up my brother from school. The day seemed to go by pretty fast. Then comes the next part.
Hope Dinner and My Girlfriend
As soon as I knew that my girlfriend was getting ready and would be on her way to our usual Friday community service, known as Hope Dinner, I found myself taking a quick shower and dressing up appropriately for the occasion. I ended up arriving at the location at 3 PM, but waited in my car for 30 minutes as I waited for my girlfriend to come. I finished reading the Hunger Games as I was anticipating the arrival of Catching Fire from my girlfriend. It ended up being too hot in my car and I decided to go into the dining hall to set up tables, chairs, and tableware. It was cool as the AC was on; however, I did start to sweat. I was worrying about my girlfriend about half an hour into fixing the tables, I texted her and I was reassured to have the reply that she was on her way. She looked absolutely lovely today, her outfit, her face, the ring that was around her finger, and her eyes seemed to glow today. We hugged and talked and went about our usual business at Hope Dinner. We always end up making each other smile, laugh, and happy. It’s always nice to be around her and it’s amazing how we share the same love to serve others by feeding the homeless. Our bond has grown more and more every Friday. Luckily, our time together did not end at Hope Dinner, but continued after as we made our way to Corner Pizzeria. It has been a few weeks since we’ve eaten at Corner. It is usually our Friday date spot. Nothing much has changed in the restaurant; however, we did notice that our waitress, whom we were served by countless times, seemed a little bit stressed and uneasy. We got our order of french fries, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, and a slice of pepperoni pizza with Coca Cola. We were full by the end of our meal, we talked about how long we’ve been together and about our physical features. We ended up taking a nice stroll outside on our way to the spot where her grandma would pick her up. We discovered that there is a lost dragon wandering around Eagle Rock, which was hilarious as we saw a a drawing of it posted on a store window. We sat down, talked some more, took pictures, it was beautiful. I just love being around her. I am grateful to spend so much time with her. I want to just be with her as much as I can until I have to leave for LMU. At that point, I won’t be able to see her as much or talk to her as much, but I know that we’ll get through and end up being together until the end of our lives. Anyway, I now spend my time on Facebook and Skyping with my girlfriend. We were having a poke war where she’d win. I wait patiently now as she has left our Skype chat to do something. I hope everything is okay. I love her.
Note to Self:
Get productive. Find a job. Do something this summer to keep yourself occupied. Your girlfriend is getting her stuff together. Stop being lazy. Start networking.@12 months ago with 1 note
