Best friends according to Kevin.
I think I’m going to be one of those guys that both craves close friendship with another guys, but avoids them at the same time. I imagine it being a mix of “too close” and “never close enough”. Every best friend I ever had eventually disappeared without a trace. I met my first best friend while fighting over a girl, and I recently lost my last best friend the same way. It’s just not worth it anymore. No more brothers or “brothers” for me.
So a lot has happened over the last few days (Journal)
I decided, to treat myself with a new smartphone— MY FIRST smartphone, mind you, and It’s an AT&T Avail. It runs Android 2.3 at the moment, and believe it or not, it’s a GoPhone! I only paid $130 for this thing. Best investment I ever made.
I was able to pay my child support again this month. Not many of you will understand why I typed that, but if you do then great. It’s a very rewarding feeling when you pay your child support. Also relative to this paragraph, I got to Skype with my boys yesterday. And despite the fact that their mom doesn’t let them watch Spongebob anymore, (I know, horrible parent right?) my 4 year old still knows all the words to the theme song. d(^_^)z
Angelica and I had a crazy day yesterday. The morning started out with us pissed off at each other, because I kinda sorta commented on a girl’s status that she doesn’t like too much through her inbox. I know what you’re thinking, but it really wasn’t as bad as it looked. It was just a well-hearted, clean conversation about her status, and I didn’t want to friend her in order to comment on it. So in the end, it looked like I was hiding a “secret inappropriate message” to another girl. Angel and I texted most of the morning and talked it over: we made amends.
After she got off work earlier than usual. (3pm) She thought it would be a good idea to visit her son at the cemetery. I’d never gone with her before, (or to any cemetery for that matter), so I was a bit nervous. It turned out to be a very good experience for both of us. There’s something about being in a cemetery that just makes it alright to talk about certain things.
We then had a short visit with a long-time friend of hers, then visited her dad’s house. He’s somewhat of an alcoholic, so we pretty much prepared for the worst. Nonetheless, he wasn’t drunk (or didn’t appear to be), and it was also a very nice visit. We hadn’t eaten anything at all that morning or afternoon, and so ate lunch at Jack’s. I’m not going to lie, we were super cute. Nothing but bacon-laden smiles and nice conversation. After that we went to her mom’s house and spent the better part of the evening there. Angelica and her sister played Super Mario Bro’s Wii, and Bowser kicked their asses. But everyone was having a lot of fun, and the shear fact that I have a girlfriend that has the determination to sit and play videogames and encounter boss fights (at all), is priceless to me.
On the way home, we talked again about that morning’s incident. We cleared a lot of air, and made our points. After taking care of a few chores it was off to bed. We got tangled, (gentleman’s speak) and spent the next several hours talking. We talked about the past, we talked about the present, and we talked about the future. Then out of nowhere she says, “I have a great idea— exactly one year from today, I want to marry you.” (I swear she wasn’t drunk! XD) After that we had a good heart-to-heart, and really put our emotions on the table about how we feel about each other, and the events that led to that moment. And I’m happy to say, that We’re going to spend this next year learning how to be the best thing for each other, and a year from today (middle of last night), we’ll see where our love has taken us.
