Cranberry

10 June 2007
On Friday night, I was feeling really sad and depressed. I had already exercised for three hours (two hours of swimming and one hour of running) that day to get over that, but nothing was really working. After doing that, I got home and sat and did homework until nine. I have such a boring life. During that time, I texted a few people to see what was up. I did not get many responses. I got one response that made me very happy! It was from my good friend Cranberry.

Cranberry and I go way back. We met in health class in seventh grade and we have been good friends ever since. She is also one of the first people that I came out to. All that I can say about her is that she is truly amazing and I am really glad to have her as my friend! :D

We chatted for a while and I decided to go up yesterday to help her move and to hang out with her. I had not seen her for a good couple of months and all day, my excitement was ready to burst out of my chest. As I was driving up to see her, I was talking to Brady. I am sure that he could tell that I was really excited, but if he could not, he must have been missing something. When I got there, it was a glorious reunion! It was really good to see her again and she still looked like her amazing self, despite the grubby clothes from moving. I helped her move into her new apartment and we chatted about a lot of things: being gay, the church, life in general, plans, goals, hopes, dreams, parents, family, friends, etc. This brought back a lot of good memories for me. I am not sure if it did for her, but it was fun! Cranberry really brightened up my day and weekend because it been a kind of a depressing one for me.

I think that I am definitely going to go up to Salt Lake to visit her more often because it was a very nice break. Cranberry has also offered me her couch whenever I need to get away from P-town. She is amazing! I love her to death!

PS Salad, she loves your blog!

PPS She wants to meet some of my friends in the MoHo world. If anyone wants to meet her when I go visit her, let me know because we will have an amazing time!

Wait, you were excited to see her? So the giddy laughs and silly comments were all because you were excited to see her!? And the whole time I thought it was just because you were so excited to be talking to me...

She sounds really cool though. I'd like to meet her and hang out sometime. How's August or September looking for you? I'll have some free time then...
