the girl i met from tumblr
so we’ve been dating for about seven months now, and things have been going really well. I drove up to see her three weeks ago and all my friends thought I was crazy—two eight hour drives to hang out with her for only one full day—but it was worth it. every time I visit her is even better than the last time.
so obviously with labor day coming up I drove up to see her again. right after work I rushed home to pack and headed up to NJ. finally, those long, jam packed highways somehow came to an end as I exited the turnpike, drove through bergen county, and parked in my girlfriend’s driveway—with her waiting for me at the porch. so fucking awesome. it made the drive all worth it.
so then we just talked and slept on the couch and listened to the trains and complained about the nocturnal cat and slept and slept and woke up at 7am to go sleep on an actual bed and slept and slept. then we went on a hike because cait is pretty outdoorsy and I love it because it makes me more outdoorsy and accomplished and just happy. so then we hiked and hiked and hiked and threw rocks at bigger rocks and stood in new jersey and new york at the same time and swung on a swing over the hudson river and it all seemed to go by so fast. I took her to eat vietnamese food for the first time and she loved it and I was so proud and just so happy with the world. and that night we got to start a new tv show in sherlock which is what we’ve been trying to do. finally. although a little too confusing, maybe because of those accents… still fun though.
and then we got another day! so we went to starbucks early in the morning at about 1pm to do work together. I was catching up on baseball blogs and trying mango smoothies from coldstone while the girlf worked on her classroom presentations. and it was just so fun being there, people watching aka ‘why are these middle schoolers hanging out here’, and I got my first bite of taylor ham which I kinda messed up by not ordering egg and cheese but it’s okay… cait is still teaching me how to order bagels. and then at night we got to cook together and made some bomb ass angel hair pasta and microwave chicken! too good. but it was just so fun cooking and drinking with her and even doing dishes (although we still gotta figure out the behind the back washing thing).
and then we got another morning! which we spent getting more bagels and enjoying each other’s company and reading le petit prince together and being sad about leaving and delaying leaving by about 3 hours. but it was okay because it was all worth it, and when it was time to go, after our goodbye, cait surprised me at the ATM! which was the most perfect and best way to say goodbye because it made me realize how in love I am with this gal. I was leaving to go back home, but had to stop by the ATM so I could get some cash for gas, and I thought she was headed to the gym… I signaled to get into the chase parking lot, and I see her behind me in her car just smiling, and I’m smiling back and waving at her because I miss her already, and thinking this is where we part ways, until she follows me into the parking lot. I’m so confused and I just go up to the ATM and she runs out of her car and into mine and gives me the biggest hug and the best kiss and I’m so happy and genuinely surprised and I am so unbelievably grateful to have found her. the goodbyes may be difficult, but the fact that they are so difficult makes me so happy.
the drive home was hard, because she wasn’t sitting in the passenger’s seat, but she handed me a pack of cd’s and goodies for the trip back. eight hours later, I’m in NC and she’s still in NJ. two hours after, she’s asleep and I’m just smiling like a goof because of how amazing this weekend and summer were.
