Went to Sticky Rice for Blingo last night…first time in a few months. Thought I’d test out the new guns in bars thing, cuz it can get kinda wild in that place when the pace of the game starts pickin’ up. Just tryin to be prepared.
But on a serious note, one of my best friends is leaving town soon so I did something unusual (though perhaps something I should make a little more usual) and went out on a weeknight to spend some quality time with her at one of her favorite Richmond events. Sarah Bellamy is a girl I’ve had some of the most amazing times in Richmond with for the past 9 years and I will definitely miss her so much!! I’ll miss hangin out on the porch hearing tales of the latest egyptian love over a glass(bottle) of wine, yelling at weirdos on the street as they walk by (sometimes inviting them up only to find out they are creeps), cooking out on the grill, watching the fireworks from the roof on 4th of july (Sarah’s FAVORITE holiday!)..I’ll miss the guidance I’ve had on many a text message…Sarah knows just how to say things when I’m overthinking them..but then again, if Sarah always helped me with my text messages, we wouldnt have died laughing so many mornings as I read the dialogue (or oftentimes unintentional monologues) from my own creative mind. Sarah’s always offered her couch for me, and many other friends to sleep on. True southern hospitality! My Richmond Virginia just won’t be the same, and I don’t think I’m alone in feeling that way…(is this post emo enough for you yet Ian?!)
BUT I’m so excited that she gets to move somewhere she’s always wanted to…watch out Philly, your world is about to get a lot more fun :) And I can’t wait to visit her up there…its only a 4 hour drive!
Cheers to Sarah and the new adventures ahead of her!
