"Fuck You, Old People" — Group Piece at CUPSI 2014
"By the way, you can’t actually pick yourself up by your own bootstraps. That’s now how physics works."
OKAY so the scariest thing happened today.
a couple of my apartment mates and i were sitting out in our dining area talking about finals and what not when we get this knock on the door. It was really weird because no one was expecting anyone so i go and look through the peephole and there’s this older guy standing outside. So i open the door and asks what he wanted and he’s just like, “oh, is KK here?” Thinking it was someone she knew from her church group or something, i was like, “oh sure, let me go get her.” so when i walk over into my room, she’s like frantically saying “no! no! tell him i’m not here” but i was just like wth? bc i already told him that she was here. but she kept on saying no and shaking her head so my other apartment mate decided to just go and tell him that she wasn’t here and that she could take a message or something.
so finally, the guy leaves and aveed (the one that told him to basically go away) was just like, “oh that guy was so creepy, he had the creepiest smile” and me and mikaela (my other apartmentmate) was just like yeah he was. so anyways, we go and ask KK (the one i share a room with) who that guy was and what he wanted and she was just like, “oh he’s my landlord from the last place i stayed at. he was really weird” and stuff like that. and then she starts telling us about how he would always text her and he gave off this really unsettling vibe and how when she was moving here, he FOLLOWED HER IN HIS CAR SO HE WOULD KNOW WHERE SHE LIVED.
she then told us how one time, she wanted to some fresh air and sunlight in the room, so she goes over to my side of the room to open my window and she sees him outside in his car, smiling at her and beckoning for her to go over to him. she ended up just closing the curtain.
while she was telling us this, mikaela jokingly goes, “haha what if he’s outside the window right now?” so she goes over to the window and looks through the curtains and next thing you know she’s screaming and running towards us.
it turns out that guy was actually SITTING OUTSIDE OF THE WINDOW the whole time listening to us and smiling. what makes it worse is that my blinds weren’t closed and my curtain is pseudo see-through at night. THAT MEANS HE SAW ALL OF US.
ugh dude, like what the hell. i still can’t believe this happened. i am legitimately creeped out.
So this was on my school’s Free and For Sale facebook group.
someone broke into my car and shattered my window and my insurance won’t cover it because the cost of repair is less than the insurance deductible so now I have to pay nearly $200 out of pocket and that just really sucks because i’m living off of student loans right now and i have no money and today has just been a really rough day.
let go of people who make you feel bad for not doing what they want.
its all fun and games until you’re simultaneously eating and crying into a burrito at midnight.
reading museum responses are the absolute best.
sometimes i want just want to walk around wearing a shirt that says, “hey, i’m already feeling like shit, can everyone just be cool today?”
what a relatively eventful week.
Today during class, my friend asked me how I was feeling and I told him I was tired.
His response was, “of what?”
That just kind of caught me off guard.
i can get a crush on someone and ill like them for one or two months and then one day ill just wake up and be like “naw”
