Today was honestly one of the best days of my life.
When I woke up I was starving after not being able to eat hardly anything for the past few days. Food really looks disgusting to me, and the idea of it being in my stomach is pretty disturbing. But my tummy was rumbling something awful, so I drank the most agreeable thing I could find in the fridge: chocolate milk. Good thing it was smooth going down cuz it was just as smooth and agreeable going back up, after I tried to get out of the door on time. Crappy start.
Finally left the house at 6:45, running late. The 156 showed up RIGHT when I got there. Where I transfer, I decided to attempt buying cigarettes at the donut shop, cuz I was fresh out and pretty upset, and they sold them to me. Walk out of the donut shop, and my bus is there. Chill on the 304 for a good hour of my time, and as I near Santa Monica I notice honestly one of the most attractive girls I've ever seen. Cute, pink choppy hair... just talking to the guy next to her about work, life, whatever. I really thought I wouldn't have the guts to say anything, and that she would get off the bus as only a memory... but luckily the guy in between us got off about 15 minutes before she had to. Finally figured out something stupid to say to get the conversation started, and I'm glad I did. We talked about everything we could for those 15 minutes, from our observations of people and the weather in Florida to how people who seem fake and empty are just trying to extend themselves past their own experiences and maturity that can only be gained over time. She told me about her job at this salon and it seemed pretty cool so I mentioned that I might stop by after I got done...
So I went to court, got there at 8:40 (it opened at 8:30). I swore I'd be later than that. Spent 2 hours there waiting to be called, but when I went in i just talked to Judge Davis and she asked me about my day and how I was feeling. Told her how I felt pretty sick and how I have to take the bus home, but that everything else was going really well. She waived my last $100 fee, and sent me off with no paperwork or anything, just a confirmation that I was done. Left the waiting room, and didn't really know what to do... By the time I was outside, I was litterally feeling butterflies from all of the day's events, especially knowing that I don't have to be so nervous all the time about getting a petty ticket while on probation and ruining my life. Don't tell anyone, but I cried. Just for a second, but it felt so good to know I was done with all of that shit.
Decided to go back to Erin's (the girl from the bus) work and figured while I was there I might as well get an application for a job as a receptionist. Of course its for 18+, so I have to wait. The woman that called her asked me to sit in the next room which was completely empty, and had little tables with 2 chairs each at them. Sat at one and she joined me. We talked for a couple of minutes and again I stupidly opened my mouth and somehow managed to mention to her that I'd like to give her my number. While writing it down I noticed that she ACTUALLY gave me hers too. Well, at least I know she's interested in talking, cuz she could have left it at me giving her mine... While we wrote, I mentioned that I just got a new phone after someone stole mine. Apparently she lost hers at "a street party in Hollywood"... which street party you ask? The West Hollywood Halloween party...
So things look good as far as this girl goes. I also ran into Joel on the bus today. Hamilton Joel. WTF? So we hung out. He might come back later and pick me up and take me on WILD adventures.
Lotsa text and nothing exciting for most of you probably, even though I'm pretty fucking happy. So here's a screenshot from FFXI.
My bunny worshippers. Look at them cower before me.
