This weekend was amazing. My body is destroyed. Yesterday afternoon a barrier meant to block parade traffic fell over and landed on my foot. I ignored it and proceeded to spend the rest of the day and night walking and dancing on shoes that I’m well aware give me blisters and all kinds of pain every time I wear them. Today my foot is bruised, swollen and incredibly sore. Lesson learned. When injured, find ice, not tight and unforgiving heels.
That being said, I had a great time. I ran into so many friends at the parade and the drag show, and made some hilarious memories. The night ended as all epic adventures do, with questionable Chinese food at 3 in the morning. I went to bed feeling every bit as silly as my irresponsible 18-year-old self, with the added bonus of having fantastic friends and a stable home situation to return to. Things really couldn’t get much better.
Today I spent the gift certificate I won in a game at Destiny’s bridal shower on an expensive but delicious tea from Teavana that I’ve been denying myself for quite some time. Then I had a three-hour nap.
My body is in pain and will surely punish me for this weekend, but I couldn’t be happier.
