i started off today with a good cry.
not good as in, "wow i really needed that and i finally got all this emotion out of my system".
good as in, i was pretty upset.
i just dont do well when people talk in a demeaning way toward me; and i really have a hard time when people are upset about something, but project those feelings onto other people (today i happened to be the other person). we were not designed to be self-centered, and when that trait starts to creep in, feelings get hurt.
but i held back the tears, and just let them all spill over when i called my mom; she was super encouraging and wonderful...and just called about an hour ago to see if i was doing better, which i definitely am.
the day did keep going though, and had a really fun turn around. at about 3:15, i was in the main building on campus with a friend. there were a lot of people around, and my friend and i started to walk toward the quad to head to our next class. all of a sudden i hear someone loudly scream, "JORDYN!!" i look up, and my good friend jen's boyfriend was walking into the building, gave me a HUGE high-five, then kept walking. not even 30 seconds later i hear, "JORDYN!!" somewhere within the mass of people. i look up to see another friend, who also walked up to me, gave me a HUGE high-five, and kept walking.
my friend chandler turned to me and goes, "wow...you just got two really intense high-fives. that was like a movie." that was probably the most popular ive ever felt in my life, haha.
now, off to watch '500 days of summer' with my roommates. oh, how i dream to look and sing like zooey deschanel.....
