Alright my dear Tumblr, it is time for me to leave, get my stuff together, and head over to my best friends house where margaritas and enchiladas are waiting for me <3. Have a wonderful beginning to a new year, and hopefully I don't tumblr drunk, but it's a major possibility.
Keys being off my mind for now, I wanted to wrap up 2010 with some nostalgia.
2010, I wasn’t expecting much, sophomore/junior year of college, sounds pretty boring, nothing too exciting. The beginning of 2010 was pretty calm, I was finally moving on from my broken heart and ready to perhaps date, met a few boys, went on a few dates, nothing serious. Went to my 4th year at Coachella, fell madly in love with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, saw them in concert about 3 times in like a two month span. Interned at an AMAZING radio station and learned so much, and fell in love with my gay sexy manager who looks like Dominic Monaghan. Summer slowly went by, experienced some dramatic and awful things with a friend but luckily I think/hope we’re slowly moving past it. My 20th birthday came and went so quickly. Moved into a new apartment, rescued my kitty from a humane society as a birthday present to myself. Then—it happened.
2010—I finally fell in love again. About a day after my birthday, I got a message on my last.fm from this really cute looking guy, I asked if I knew him (obviously not, I was just trying to make conversation hahah), and he told me he was from Sweden, he was 29, blah blah blah. We pretty much talked non stop from that point on. I was obsessed with getting his messages on last.fm. I’d be on my phone or computer all the time waiting for a message from him. I just knew something was special about this one. Finally we started chatting on Skype, and then we decided to video chat—I immediately changed what I was wearing so I could impress him, and we met each other, and I fell in love. Of course, how embarrassing to fall in love with someone you’d never really met—but at that point I didn’t really care. We started video chatting all the time, and we’d say very cute things to each other, I called him my Swede, and he called me his baby. We started to “date”, and we’d have Skype dates now and then, but I was just desperately wanting him in person. He gathered the money (I to this day swear he sold his body for all the money ;D), and he came to Pittsburgh to stay with me. The moment I saw him I kissed him and knew I never wanted to be away from this wonderful man for the rest of my life. He’s been to Pittsburgh twice, the amount of time we’ve spent together is probably over two months, and two months apart. Every day away from his is torture—and me being in California is a nine hour time difference which makes a relationship super hard. But he works so hard to make it work—he’s so amazing, not like any other I’ve dated. I’ve never had someone so determined to have me forever and it’s a wonderful feeling. We’ve had our major fights, but he always talks me through them, never raising his voice, never yelling at me or calling me names—he loves me. And I love him terribly. On Jan. 15, he’s coming to stay with me in Pittsburgh for three months, and I could not be any happier.
So, Kristoffer Simon Olsson/slackerjournal, I love you. With all my heart, you have made my 2010 incredibly special and a year that I will never forget because it is the beginning of my life with you. 2011 will bring us so much happiness, and I promise you’ll see me kissing you in 2012. ;D.
