My sister, everybody. (isn’t she sweet?) :’)
I was flying yesterday. I only remember feeling like this on the first night of Swirl of Sensations, dance concert about three/four years ago. To see loved ones, to be loved and supported fully, shamelessly, one that was being proud of. Honestly floaty flying. Thank you to all who came, and those fate gave me! I didn’t ask anyone out of my own accord to be honest, only those who expressed interest before. It was amazing to see unplanned blessings, those I haven’t seen in too long. And my family, although I see you every day, when you’re supporting me in something that is my own, it gives a feeling I cannot describe. I can tell you’re so proud, especially my sweetest Keane and Lena, who stand by the ‘my eldest sister is the best’ philosophy unwavering, with amazing strength, loyalty and trust. Flying.
Valmcflyer, you looked beautiful. Anyone who has you in their lives is so blessed, I know I am. :) Sam, I MISS you so much more than you know, and it amazes me always how obvious you show your love for me, no walls, just pride. Always your ‘sunshine’. ;) Patty, miss gorgeous! We’re going out soon and I’ll bite and love you more. Nicole, I’m seeing you soon. We don’t meet or talk but you’re still my primary six best friend, and I’m so touched you came down, so loved after so long, fiery angel. :) Arthur! You’re so sweet to have remembered! I hope to see more of you my dear, it was great to see you so happy! Jolene, the shirt you gave me is as cute as you, hahaha library soon!! Jie Kim, I demand more time with you and Mark, I love hanging with you both, really really love, so happy and touched you came. :’) Lex and Esther, I’m glad your boyfriend brought you there and I got hugs. :) I love you all. I really, really do.
Schoolmates. Friends. I’ve said before in private how I’ve hated these three years. Struggling work-wise, socially, self-wise. Yesterday, all those seemed to fade away. I felt fond of everything and everyone. I felt comfortable, I felt lively, I felt happy. I felt confident. One of my favourite memories is when I found out I got a card, and I started jumping in happiness (couldn’t contain myself) with Lena and Keane, then my bag fell off my shoulders and I heard loud laughter from Chloe who I didn’t even know was standing there. I was embarrassed but her laughter (at me) has occurred so often it felt happily endearing. After I shared my news, she started jumping and screaming while Cassie shouted through her screams informing me that epigram is a big deal. It reminded me of when I got the email from Martyn that I had gotten the internship at Elmwood. Megan Chloe and I had been having a serious conversation about Ad campaign, till I quietly told them (unable to contain myself again) ‘I got into Elmwood.’ Then they both (I love that Chloe is in both instances) started screaming and jumping with me and I felt so warm and happy and so so so loved and warm and happy and happy happy happy. I felt that same bit yesterday, even when they were laughing and making fun of me. Oh I wish I could have recorded everything there and then.
Chloe, I could not be happier that you were next to my booth. We have so much fun, three days with you is not enough, you’re one of the best parts I’m going to keep from being in VSC. I will keep lemon meringue-ing you, forever and ever.
I loved how everyone felt like a friend. To be able to laugh and talk and reminisce with no stress or worry was such a blessing. To be able to have these people with me that day was a privilege. Oh man, I’m actually sad to leave.
Happy dip show everyone.
