Sorry for the late update (not that anyone reads this thing due to my two year leave of absence). I went back home for a four day Thanksgiving weekend. It was the first time I had been home since coming here to UC Santa Cruz. Being back home was soooooo relieving. I was able to sleep in my own bed, use my own shower, drive my own car, and see people I hadn't seen in over two months, especially my girlfriend, Krystal. My flight arrived at about six o'clock in the evening on Wednesday at John Wayne Airport. I walked out of the plane and down the stairs with my carry-on backpack to be greeted by my wonderful girlfriend who commenced jumping on my and tackling me down. I swear to you, it was one of the greatest feelings in the world. I sped home with krystal and my brother, blasting Shpongle every minute of the way. I came to notice that it was the simple things about being home I missed the most, like speeding down the 405 listening to loud music with people I love. The feeling was sensational. During the ride I told them some cool things about the college experience--about how I've grown a lot in the past two months and done a lot of new things. Both of them seemed happy for me, but kind of bummed at the same time, seeing as I would be leaving for college again in a few days; however, I reassured them both that I would be down again ten days later for a month long Christmas Break!
So, I arrived home about twenty-five minutes later. I hung out with krystal and my family and shot the bull some more. I didn't feel like staying in my house, though I felt so cozy at the time. I really just wanted to go somewhere with my girlfriend, so we hopped in her car and took a drive over to In-n-Out. Let me just say that it has been FAR TOO LONG since last eating at In-n-Out. After that we went to Regal cinemas to see Rent. While I was there, I accidentally bumped into some high school prick who wanted to fight me. I staight up said to his face "I'm visiting from college for the weekend to spend time with my friends and family. I didn't come back for your highschool drama..." I thought for a second and decided that throwing in a witty comment would be harmless, "...it's not my fault you haven't gotten laid yet." Then I walked away and entered the theatre. The movie was okay, but I much preferred the broadway version (who wouldn't?). After the movie, krystal drove me home and I crashed in my OWN BED! I slepted sooo wonderfully that night.
Thursday- THANKSGIVING! The next morning I woke up the best I ever had because when i opened my eyes, my girlfriend was laying right next to me looking at my while I slept. After that, I demaded my father make me a fucking omlette, which he did. Best omlette ever. The next few hours were spent chillin' with my family. Krystal had to leave at around noon to go see some of her family in Claremont. I wouldn't see her until about ten that night. AFter she left, I went over to Ronnie's house and hung out for a while. We had a blast just catching up. He's hardly on AIM or Myspace, so it's hard to get in contact with him unless I call him, but he's always working, so it's hard to call him! It was good seeing a friend who has known me since first grade. After I left his house, I drove in a hurry because I wanted some fucking Turkey. I got home and the bird wasn't ready yet. GOD I WAS SO HUNGRY! I went up stairs and played some Mario Kart DS online. btw-if you have Mario Kart DS, my friend code is 206218 370918. holler back on AIM (iamnotzev) and let me know if you wanna play. After two hours of getting pwned by people who were obviously using some cheat device, I went down stairs and munched on turkey, stuffing, mash 'taters, sweet 'taters, green beens, etc...what a lovely thanksgiving. I said I was thankful for home, family, friends, and mario kart.
Friday was a day I had set aside to hang out with the guys, but I couldn't resist going to hang out with my girlfriend beforehand. We hung out at her house, then I took her to THHS to let her work on the set for her upcoming play "Hidden: The Story of Anne Frank." I stuck around for a while to chat with my old drama teacher, Mr. Beidler. It was good seeing him again. Then Krystal and I parted our ways as I went to chill with the homies...fuck I have class, I'll update later today.
Okay back to updating...where was I?? AH YES! The homies. I went to hang out with the homies for the rest of the night. At six o'clock we ingested psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. My brother, Paul, and Jeff each ate an eighth because it was their first time. I ate a quad. We all had wonderful trips. Mine, in particular, was extra visual because of the higher dose. I was glad I did it with them because they were all inexperienced, so I was there to guide them. Paul even said "Dude, I'm so glad I'm doing this with you...you're like a spiritual guide." We went over to Ronnie's house to hang out while tripping. Sammy said "Dude, Ronnie, you're such a good presence!" and I said "Wow Sammy...you're pretty gay." Then Ronnie said "Thanks n all...but yeah, I'm getting a big homo vibe." We all laughed our asses off and had a great time just chillin' like the old times. After we all came down from our trip, Sammy, Jeff and myself drove to my house to watch Harold and Kumar and go to sleep. Woke up the next day...
Saturday: Before heading home I wanted to set aside a day that I could spend strictly with my girlfriend. I woke up to her beautiful smile again and went over to her house to watch her "Mirrors XV: A Dance in Someone Else's Shoes" performance. It was fantastic. It made me miss my highschool production company soooo much. After that we went back to my house to eat dinner with the fam. My mom was running a bit late because of traffic, so I caught up on the last two OC episodes which were great to say the least. After watching the OC, we went to La Perlita, one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, to eat some dank food. After that, we went back to my house to get Krystal's car. We headed down to the Montage in Laguna Beach and had a wonderful romantic evening.
Sunday I came back to Santa Cruz. I'm tight.
