i miss boy.
whenever i think about him i tell myself to just stop it and appreciate the summer for what it was, but i inevitably end up curled up in my bed for fifteen minutes straight contemplating what could have been.
i’m excited to go back to RISD, but there’s this sinking feeling that i already know everyone there. maybe i’m just not ready to see new people yet, but when will i be? my heart wasn’t broken and there’s no event to get over. the thought that he’ll just fade away makes me sad.
Another piece of college advice
I would like to add to my freshman advice and say LEARN THE NAMES OF THE STAFF especially if you see them on a daily basis!!! A lot of people treat the staff like robots which is not okay. If you are personable with them, they will be with you.
An example is there is this check-out lady who I’ve known the name of for a long time, but she’s always really angry-looking so I’m too scared to say anything more than “Hey.” One day I was in a brave mood so I said in a friendly tone “Hey ____, how are you?” and her expression brightened immediately. The kitchen staff that I speak with more regularly are really sweet and almost always give me discounts. Plus they work long-ass shifts so you might as well try to brighten things up for them.
