Never trust an atom they make up everything
I love you. You’re definitely one of my most favorite people ever. Leave Jon’s lame ass, move to Austin, let’s find a cute place to live near a park and meet lots of awesome new people and be happy with our lives.
No but seriously, I think we would make awesome roommates…
Awww bb! Reading that made me sad and happy at the same time. Sigh. I am dead serious, though. I honestly think you would love it here and be very happy. The people are SO different, June. Like. Lol. STORY TIME.
Seriously. I want you to think about this, for real. After I get a little more settled, get my finances stable and get my car out here, have my living situation all figured out and whatnot, I think you really NEED to come visit and think about moving here. With or without Jon, whatever. I can’t help but to daydream about you just picking up and leaving him, moving in with me where-ever I end up, and us decorating our space together with all sorts of super cool stuff, crafting together, finding new hobbies and people to share unique interests with and ughhhjgkdfxh it would be so amazing. XD
Oh. And then we convince MoMo to come visit and hold her hostage. >]
I am seriously considering it hahah. I need out of this place so badly. I could never go out and do that here - anytime I do think I find an amazing new person they end up being a total doucher and they try to screw me over. Even a lot of the people I used to think were good people are some of the worst people I have ever had the displeasure of being acquainted with. “Friendship” means nothing in this god forsaken place. Common courtesy is like a swear word for these people.
I’m glad you are having such a lovely time <3 you deserve good peoples…though you’ve never really seemed to have a hard time locating them no matter where you go xD
