So it is one of my closest friend’s (MyMindSpeaksAloud) birthday today and soo I think she deserves a lil shout-out. You should go read her posts because she’s awesome and your life is not complete without reading her stuff, k? Also, she’s 18 now so her posts will be way more mature than they were yesterday, I’m sure. 😀
She hasn’t received many comments/likes for a while and I think it’s made her a bit down so, if you go just read her stuff, maybe even give a comment, that would be the best birthday present for you to give her. ^-^ And her posts are not lacking quality at all, so go do it now! Woo!
So, after a pretty bad yesterday (where I felt really ill all day and it ended up with a lovely swollen lip and cut nose), I was really nervous about today because it was the day I was meeting with MyMindSpeaksAloud for the first time, after knowing each other for five years. I thought that maybe she’d hate me and I was really panicking over it.
After a pretty awkward start, we played Monopoly, The Game of Life, and a very… interesting version of Scrabble where you get awarded points for the inappropriateness of the word, rather than the length of the word/value of the letters. It was very interesting, indeed.
After that, we played Jenga in which we won one game each. I then showed her this app on my phone called Exploding Kittens (which basically was a card game where you have to avoid getting the exploding kitten). Finally, I got my mum’s laptop and we played some CurveFever together, which was what we normally play when we are talking to one another online.
It went a lot better than I expected and I really enjoyed her visit. I have felt really sad recently and it was such a good boost in my confidence!
Also, the surprise that she’s been hiding from me for several weeks, came in the form of a panda-covered notebook. It was awesome. I can’t believe I actually met her! 🙂
Thanks for reading this post,
