The Morning Of the Beginning… maybe

I’m trying to keep my personal life out of this blog, but I just can’t help myself! Last night I had a good night. I went out… for once, I actually went out. When I came back to the dorm, my roommate Jolene asked me if I just came back from my studio where I laughed and said no, I actually went out! She asked where did I go, I tried hard to remember the bar’s name… Egon and Sons, and she said something like “Oh my gosh! You were there? I was there too with my friend Eileen (not sure about the friend’s name… I just came from a class where the teacher’s name was Eileen so I could of been hearing wrong) I can’t believe that you were there! We could of had a beer together!” That’s just too funny. Of course, if she went out in Montclair she would go to one of the two bars in Montclair (and she actually went to the other one later) but we probably only in the same bar together for about a half an hour… but still… pretty funny. I like both my roommates, they are great people.

Anyway – the reason I was out. Janet’s birthday! It was on Wednesday and no one was around… heck, she wasn’t around. We had a long class together, with the professor named Eileen, got out around 9:30 and went delusional. It was a long day. We came back to my dorm to pick up an 80s CD to listen to in the car and were on our way. So we were driving… they were really simple directions, Valley Rd, turn L on Walnut… of course, I have no idea where Walnut was. Our friend called and said, “remember you took me to the Walnut train station?” and of course I don’t… I mean, that was way back in October when I first started driving around this area. We stopped so she could get hercigarettes and I suggested we needed to eat something or else we’d be smashed in seconds of having our first drink so we got buttered rolls. How funny is that. And we weren’t even drinking yet. They were good too. Anywho, we got to the bar and she forgot her ID when we walked up to the bar. Our first reaction to this bar was that we were totally not dressed up to go to the bar… I mean, I was in a cheesy t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. At least put on some nice pants and shoes! And a decent shirt! Oh well. So the bouncer took one look at us as she said she forgot her ID in the car and he said “You’re going to need it” in a tone saying, you two look way too young so you better have real IDs. It was Janet’s 29th birthday by the way (which she doesn’t read this, so she wouldn’t care if I tell 🙂 ) So anyway, to make this boring story go quicker, we finally met up with our friends from school and drank Roman Cokes (since I hate beer), well, me one, so I was good, especially after that roll, and her three and a shot of something that smelled really good – like lemons. It was all good fun. Then driving Janet home to Jersey City we were singing along to the 80s CD, in particular the song “Mickey” by Toni Basil. Good times, good times.

So I really needed last night. It was a nice relaxing time to just realize that I do have friends and they’ll be behind me all the way. Whoohoo!! And I will leave you with lyrics from a great 80’s song, Take on Me by A-Ha:

We’re talking away
I don’t know what
I’m to say I’ll say it anyway
Today’s another day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, OK?

Take on me, take me on
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I’m odds and ends
But that’s me stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me
It’s no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me, take me on
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

Oh the things that you say
Is it life or
Just a play my worries away
You’re all the things I’ve got to
You’re shying away
I’ll be coming for you anyway

Take on me, take me on
I’ll be gone
In a day or two
