“Yo whats up, it’s your boy! How did I end up where I am now? Fuck if I know dude... for the past two months, I’ve been working as a host/waiter at this fancy restaurant in NYC, even though I go to college in San Diego. I told my mom it was to gain “valuable work experience” that will set me apart from other chemical engineers, but my dad and I both know it was to follow this amazing person that I get to call my girlfriend... I was nervous at first, I had never lived on my own, worked full time, paid rent, I wasn’t going to see my friends or family for awhile, and I was worried that people would judge me for doing something that seems so naive and foolish. However, after sending the last two months here in New York with my friend that is a girl (she likes to wear those cute dresses!) I’ve realized I don’t CARE what other people think because I LOVE this person so goddamn much!
I could marry this girl, and I’ve never said that to anyone ever before. Having just written that, I understand that it’s incredibly foolish and naive to say that, as we’ll probably break up I guess since we’re young or something. But I don’t give a SHIT, because I love her NOW!
So to all you people out there, if you’re gonna love someone, do it wholeheartedly, tearfully, kindly, travel-across-the-world-ly.
