SLP 7: Sunshine

You remember the guy I mentioned before? We had dinner today when having a little housewarming party at my room by ourselves. He did keep his promise, which kind of surprised me, because I know how good he is at not keeping them. I realized again why I felt so comfortable around him and why I ever saw him as a friend anyway. I wasn’t that weak of a person that I just wanted to be around him for the complements he gave me; I honestly couldn’t care less about those, but it’s the comfortable feeling of being accepted, almost like being ‘home’ that he’s supplied me with ever since I got to know him, that attracts me towards him, even if it’s just as friends. I’m happy that this whole thing is now finally solved.

To manage not to throw up my food on purpose and being able to talk about it afterwards with a friend and not being judged about it. I must be doing well these days if I don’t have to do those things anymore!

‘I like your hat! It matches the style of the rest of your outfit too!’ YOU’RE SO KIND! Yes, I have my own style!

Taking a walk after sitting in my room for quite a while. Though it started out bad, with my secret garden being closed and seeing loveydovey couples everywhere (Is it Valentine’s Day? NO! So get the fuck off!), but when I almost reached the end of my stroll my best friend easily made me laugh through the texts we exchanged and I also saw two cute guys! One of them lives in the building across from mine and the other guy lives in the same building as mine! Hehe, that makes up for pretty much everything.

Taking a stroll in the park with the sun shining bright. Just walking and looking around, nothing more. The first picture of this post was taken during my stroll.

Cooking an incredibly colourful dinner with a friend; Fried rice with egg, red and green paprikas and tofu. Just looking at it every time I took a bite made me smile! I love colourful food! I really really really love it!

This picture isn’t that very special as I believe to have read this quote many times before, but I still took it when I saw it. Usually when reading such a quote I’d think to myself ‘Yeah, that must have been a preeeettyy looooong time ago’, because I’m not that adventures, but lately I did have many big things happening in my life! Ironic, isn’t it, that suddenly this comes up my path almost forcing me to see how incredible my life is going and how I should appreciate and capture every single happy moment, big or small.

Got a call and now I’ve been choosed for the room! I’m moving out! What I like about this, is that my new roommate could have chosen others beside me, but still choose me! Wow, I’m incredibly happy! Now my whole life is going to change! I’m going to be a Rotterdammer!!

My parents who hugged and congratulated me when they heard the two big things in my life.

A phonecall from a friend who stayed up with me in the middle of the night who actually wanted to talk about her worries, but still let me blab about my happiness first, because I was so excited and because she loves me she was excited for me.

Breakfast with a lovely friend who is one of the most sweetest and kindest people I know. I love how people can be so happy for you, just because they care so much.

Dancing at a party with friends. When I signed my rental contract for my new room that morning I felt like crying. I’d felt like that for almost the whole day until that night when my friends and I went out for a party and we just started to dance. It felt so good to just dance and not think about anything, not care about anything. Some times it felt like the time had stopped for a second and then started again. It felt really good.
Or I was just a bit tipsy and that’s why I felt a couple of times like time had stopped. Either way I felt awesome!

I didn’t know what colour to choose to paint the walls of my new room with, so I just went to the store to decide on the spot. There I discovered a colour called ‘beauty’, which was a very light shade of pink. Normally I’m not too fond of pink and also my mother started to laugh at me when she saw the colour I’d chosen, but this time it was different. I choose it because of the name and not necessarily because of the colour. This colour ‘beauty’ describes perfectly how I want to live my life; with beauty. See beauty, feel beauty, be beauty.
