My friends here at Smith are #superawesome, and any issues I’ve had with them have all been resolved super quickly! So like, for example, a few weeks ago, a friend and I had a really super in-depth convo about some things that had been bothering us and it was great and lovely and <3 <3 <3.
I guess that’s what I’d change about home friends. People aren’t willing to talk to each other, and people are super stubborn, so that leads to a lot of difficulties, I think. There are some home friends I know I can say “Hey, this makes me uncomfortable!” and they’d stop immediately or work it out, and others’d have a bitch fit.
I’m glad my friends back home have been opening up more to talks about sexism and racism and classism and all the -isms. That was really super stressful for a while, particularly last year. It made me not want to see a lot of people, and I also felt like they didn’t particularly want to see me. Then I stopped giving a shit, which is actually really good life advice.
I guess I also wish people had made more of an effort to keep in touch with me while at Smith, but I’ve made some unexpected friendships as well, so that’s been cool. Too late now, at any rate.
Every day I come by your house and I pick you up. And we go out. We have a few drinks, and a few laughs, and it’s great. But you know what the best part of my day is? For about ten seconds, from when I pull up to the curb and when I get to your door, ‘cause I think, maybe I’ll get up there and I’ll knock on the door and you won’t be there. No goodbye. No see you later. No nothing. You just left. I don’t know much, but I know that.

I don’t understand why some people aren’t okay with sitting at home doing nothing like why do you need to be with your friends constantly don’t you ever want time to yourself jesus christ
