I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” -Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice. Ah, how beautiful.
please excuse me as i talk like the luckiest girl in the world for a hot sec.
It began with: “Can you read this text? I’m winning this fight, right?” The Titanic, jumping over you in the hallway, WILD, “We’re just going to be best friends, okay?” suitemates, you joining me on skype seshs with friends, bringing you your laptop cord in bd, WASHUWASH, trying to make you graphics, cutting out your infamous ghost sheet, advice on advice on advice, doing your drag makeup and yelling at you later that night for being needy, you getting mad that I replaced you with Jake, crying on your shoulder after a bad day/night, elevator chats, Reading week studying and the couch pictures, boxer trading, Ibby’s, Highlighter Kappa Sig, Betarade, you stealing my bed from me, so I had to sleep in my chair, THE RUNNING RANT, making your bed
It proceeded with: Hitting your head on Max’s ceiling, DG Formal, pretending we were a couple when we were just friends, Roof of Graham Chapel, taking a part of that roof, stealing a construction worker’s hat from Umrath Hall, going to the top of Umrath, being friends with Hot Dam PFam, you DJ-ing Beta things, second floor of the DUC (and eventually visiting you on the third), you letting me into a DUC conference room to study math, going to see you perform with RnR
It ended with: Beta Formal, Kelly & I making you the happiest DJ ever, “Is this a good idea…?” Gummy bears (both plain and over-doused variety, walking in the first night,drop everything now, kiss me in the pouring rain,finding the piano room/kitchen/laundry rooms, debating until 2am in the morning, 2:00 on April 4th.
It continues with: Holding hands so that fingers are adequately warm and arms are comfortable, friend flinch, good morning/good night texts, never seeing you because of your secretive pledge stuff but leaving me the note, “Wait, are you ticklish?” meeting the parents, stealing your clothes, random cute moments when we’re walking, you visiting me in studio, Vivienne, Spring Wild…, seeing you at your regatta
Thoughts and Prayers
A friend of mine, who was also my twin’s closest friend, passed away early this morning due to Menengitis.
Thoughts and prayers for her family and loved ones, please?
