Super proud of this kid. It was worth the wait. Listen up.
Your iPhone pocket-called me the other day.
You were walking.
I could hear your legs moving.
I was in your pants, after all, with the phone.
Swip swip. Swip swip. Swip swip.
Very rhythmic. Soothing. I listened in for a while. I was hoping for a scrap of inappropriate conversation.
I like to overhear things that hurt me.
I got nothing.
You were just going somewhere.
I have too many ideas about everything all of the time. It is overwhelming. I am Pinterest on the inside.
"I’m trying to make more decisions with my heart instead of my brain."
“So what’s one decision you wish you’d made with your heart?”
“Probably breaking up with my ex-girlfriend. I broke up with her because I thought it would be smarter to focus on school, and now I don’t think it was a good idea. I mean, it’s all good though, because we still talk and everything.”
“Well, if you still talk, then why don’t you get back together?”
“Well, at first she was upset about it. But then she understood my point of view, so she wasn’t upset about it anymore. And now she’s not upset… but you know, it’s starting to bounce around in the back of my mind, and…”
“So she won’t take you back?”
“… something like that.”
