I remember freshman year a couple of my friends told me about the Pain Olympics and how it was the worst most fucked up thing they’d ever seen. Naturally, I had to see it. They took about ten minutes to find online, and then my friend loaded up the video and let it buffer, and then ran to the door of the apartment and sorta chilled outside, peeking in through the barely open door. I pressed play, and the shit I saw was so heinous I actually screamed out loud. He slammed the door and ran down the hallway. When the video was done I left and there were like three public safety officers coming in because the front desk had heard me screaming and seen my friends running from the room and thought that something awful was happening to me.
Learn from me, Tumblr. Don’t watch the Pain Olympics.
All about pettiness and immaturity and how I went from a group of 14+ to rollin’ three deep with Waldy and Maria, and couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out.
And of course, if you have any of your own tidbits and tips to share, let a Rican know. I think Miss Serbus is the only one that’s taken me up on that so far, but I’m sure you guys have some stuff to share.
It’s that time in a lot of our lives where we’re either about to graduate, or we’ve just graduated and are sort of in flux, either trying to enter the “real world” or go to grad school or something. So if you’re doing big things or trying to do big things, props to you.
A smattering of graduation pics because I finally uploaded them almost a month later. Among those pictured are Waldy, Maria, my sister, my Dad, and Momma Duran (not in that order; actually, in reverse order haha).
What a day. Thanks to all you lovely folks offering congratulations, I really appreciate it. The ceremony was nice (but long, and it was slavery hot outside), and then Waldy and Maria and I took some pictures and then Waldy and my families went out for lunch, then I saw my grandma and then came home, took a nap, and went to see the Avengers again (sober this time!) with my Dad.
And now, I make some playlists, re-sync my iPod, and go to sleep. Haha.
