Spring Break, either in 2004 or 2005 with my middle and high school best friend.
i think males are really fun. girls, we complain about them all the time, but really, what would we do if we couldn't bitch about how much they annoy us? and some are so good looking. and they have nice hands (yeah i'm weird, i know it). and their little games are fun for you to figure out with your friends. I mean, still kind of true, but so glad I don't have to deal with the boy games anymore.
Cell phone pics used to be so tiny! This is with my older niece who looks about 5 here... she's almost 14 now.
i'm in the mood i get in where i want to listen to dashboard confessional and read the perks of being a wallflower for the millionth time. i'm in my "no one will ever understand lauren" mood. i'm feeling very unwanted and unnecessary, and i know i shouldn't, but i do. i don't know why i let people have such great effects on me. i have a tendency to take everything too personally and overanalyze every little thing. it really irks me for people to be mad at me. argh. expectations ruin everything. Ooooh feeling so emo here. I was in college and working part time - no idea why I was so sad - life was good!
damn me and my luck. i don't want a guy. but somehow one fell in my lap. and he says all the right things all the time and he is already putting up with my moods and he's good. and he makes me happy. This is totally about Andrew, and we hadn't even met in person yet. I didn't want a boyfriend when we were introduced. Sorry those moods are still a thing all these years later, but at least he knew what he was getting into...
One of the first pics of us ever on social media - definitely early 2006
Funny to see how some things haven't changed...
a lot of people i have known in passing throughout life are setting up house and living domestically. it's good to know that i'm not alone. of my 3, literally 3, friends, none of them are doing that, so sometimes it is kind of weird. not weird, but it makes me feel old to be worried about bills, taking my weekly trip to the grocery store, and joking about dividing up chores. plus, i SUCK at being domestic. andrew says that everything i cook involves velveeta, and he is basically right. but, i try to keep things from getting gross. i am bad at picking up on a daily basis. he has to remind me to pick up my shoes and not leave them piled by the front door and stuff like that. i am glad to have found someone to put up with my slobbishness. i just hope it doesn't get old anytime soon! 4.5 years later, I could basically have written the same thing and it's still true.
So, there is plenty more where that came from! I'm glad I had the option to download all these little gems so I can look back one day at all of the many 100 question surveys I wasted time on in my myspace days. It's funny to see how I still pretty much look the same and act the same all these years later...
