Today was a lovely day.
I went to the museum with an old friend,
Got pizza from an Italian place we went to a couple of years ago together,
And Always Sunny in Philadelphia with a couple of cuddles thrown in.
Then to head to dinner with three of my favorite boys in CBR.
I got a ring, and sung to.
A condom and a poem recited to me.
And a pink rose :)
I was told today a person I love uncontrollably has been diagnosed with both liver and lung cancer.
Unfortunately, because it is detected quite late, it is predicted he will live no longer than 6 months.
This person has watched me grow up to who I am today, and has been an amazing role model to myself and my little brother.
Honestly, the world will be a less colorful place without him singing bad 90s pop tunes, asking me what “colouring ins” I’ve gotten lately, teasing me about not eating meat, and his amazing works of art.
These next few months will slowly cause me to ache even more than I do now since the shock I was given by my dad at 3:52pm. I have only had a few hours where I haven’t cried, promise.
All I can say is “fuck cancer”.
It’s weird to think that I’ve said “I love you” to my family a million times more since I’ve lived interstate than I did when I lived in the same home as them or 30mins away.
It’s not that I hated living with them, or in the same city as them. For those that know me know how ridiculously close I am to my family…
I think I am afraid if I don’t say it something may happen and I don’t have the power to walk into the next room to help, or drive 30mins up a hill to see them.
I miss them a million but.
4 weeks and 4 days.
It would have been 5 months since I’ve seen them.
So so weird.
This time in 5 weeks I will be in Perth with PassionPop adventures,
Long awaited hugs from friends,
Mum’s Hawaiian themed 50th,
Thursday karaoke and Demon Dinner tradition,
And Mexican dinners.
8 weeks from now I will be boarding a plane for a 5 and a half week adventure to the USA.
In the mean time I have an amazing workplace to keep me out of trouble 7 days a week,
And cute dinners to keep me smiling until then….
