Having two best friends is disadvantageous for this challenge.
Stef and I are so alike but so so so different at the same time, it makes no sense. She is significantly more emotional than I am, where I am super logical she is super emotional [in most cases]. She has an entirely different relationship with her online friends than I do with mine [again, in most cases]. She’s more outgoing in social situations than I am, and is more willing to try to new things. I think about things more before I do them, where she just jumps in. She’s also a bit more reckless than me.
Heriberto and I are really quite similar, which is why he’s great. Writing similarities would definitely be simpler here. I feel like he is also more outgoing than me in social situations, and it’s easier for him to make friends than me. He won’t go to Divas, so there’s that. I really can’t think of much else right now, which could quite possibly be because I’ve only been awake for a half hour.
Oh boy, I don’t know if I have a “perfect date.” I couldn’t possibly plan something, it would really depend on the person I was with. And how long is this date! But I’m not skipping out on another question, so I will assume this date starts at approximately 5pm and goes until whenever.
Dinner is what starts it, obviously! Preferably someplace Italian, that way whoever I’m on a date with doesn’t realize how picky I am… I’ll eat a LOT of different Italian food as opposed to other ethnicities of flavor. Since this is a perfect date I’ll assume I enjoy this person, so we can get about two hours at a restaurant just chatting away, maybe a little bit less. The night is young at this point, so wandering around town would probably be enjoyable. Really I don’t care what town it is, Northampton, Boston, NYC, all of these are fun places to be. After wandering for a bit…
Who am I kidding? This is a ridiculously cliche date. I mean, Italian?! Really?! Everyone likes Italian Dan, you couldn’t get much more cliche. I don’t plan dates! I like to go along for the ride. This is unfortunate seeing as I am a guy and therefore am generally expected to be in charge of the dates. Good thing I like other guys, I can make them be in charge… Ok yeah I’m off track here. Dinner and wandering around some city is seriously ideal for me. Winter in NYC is probably the best date possible, with ice skating and the giant Christmas tree and all. Plus, NYC is great. [oh, and if this is NYC this date could involve broadway! yeah, that’s a great date right there. :D]
This is a tough one. If I had to pick one person to be stranded with, it would probably be Heriberto. I don’t know if I could put up with Stef for extended periods of time. As for the 10 items, I don’t even know if I’d need that many.
1. A laptop with built-in charger
2. Solar powered outlet for plugging in things
3. Satellite Internet card/antenna thing
5. Sleeping bags
6. Fishing Pole
7. Gun (for hunting! cause I could totally hunt. |:)
8. Toaster oven or conventional oven for cooking dead animals
9. Large multi-purpose knife for preparing said animals
10. Flare gun for signalling the help I called via internet
Well, this is a difficult question. It wouldn’t be somebody famous, as even for a day I wouldn’t want to put up with the stresses of life in the spotlight. I originally wanted to say Stef, but to be quite honest I probably couldn’t deal with a day in her shoes, and thinking about it even more I don’t think I’d want to be her. I don’t envy the life of anyone I can think of or anything, as a general rule. I feel like I’m ducking out of two days in a row here, but I honestly can’t think of someone who I would switch lives with. So! I wouldn’t switch lives with anyone, because as much as I complain about not doing anything, I am overall content with my life, and am happy with not living a day in someone else’s shoes.
Whoops, I’m behind! How surprising!
I don’t remember the last movie I watched. Hmmm. I basically never watch movies. This is a trend in my life that needs to change. The most recent one I remember is Inception but I know that’s not the most recent one I’ve seen! But I’ll write about it I guess? I thought it actually lived up to the hype, I saw it not expecting it to live up to my expectations after everyone built it up so much, but it really did. I feel like it will be remembered as one of the great movies of our time, which is good because it is! I have only seen it that one time, but I want to own it so I can watch it again and make the beginning make more sense.
Oh man, not much annoys me. Let’s see if I can manage to think of 10 things.
1. When people make big deals out of minor things for unreasonable reasons.
2. When people go out of their way to remind me of things I know I have to do.
3. When people don’t knock on my door before they come in my room.
4. When people do things incorrectly, even after being corrected on it before.
5. This is sorta stolen from Jess, but yeah. When people hang their keys (at work) by the elastic strap instead of the metal ring.
6. People who drive slower than the speed limit.
7. Disorganization at work. [anywhere else is fine but at work for some reason messiness bothers me ridiculously]
8. When people call me immature/tell me to act my age… this applied significantly more in the past than it does now.
9. People who refuse to concede that they are wrong, even after being proven so.
10. When something that I set up and is working wonderfully is messed up by someone else [ie break plans at work.]
It’s honestly really hard for me to choose a favorite song, because it’s only been in the past year and a half or so that I’ve paid enough attention to the music I listen to know who sings it and what the name of the song it and stuff. But Weightless by All Time Low basically sums up my life, especially this year. Since the first weekend of 2010 this has been my favorite song. This is because the first weekend of this year was wicked shitty, and then I was hanging out with a friend and heard this song. I had heard it before, but that line “Maybe it’s not my weekend, but it’s gonna be my year” caught my attention. I grabbed that, and lived my life with it. As this year has gone on, this song continues to fit my life so well, because I really am tired of going nowhere. I’m ready to get going in life. This song is perfect. <3
Lately when the best friend question comes up, I think of two people over all others. I have other people who I am quite close to, but these two are, for one reason or another, the ones I think of the most. One of them I know thinks of me the same way, but I’m not sure about the other. Oh well!
Stef Laflamme has definitely been my best friend through thick and thin, kinda. We’ve had our disagreements and our rough times, but we always get over it. She’s completely insane and I don’t always agree with her life choices, but without her I would be an entirely different person. We have a language exclusive to us, and even if we aren’t speaking in that “language” half the time people can’t understand us anyway. I am so glad I have someone who I can exchange a glance with in whatever situation, and we know what the other is thinking. Also, I miss her like craaaazy since she went away.
Heriberto Villanueva has a ridiculously long name. I only really got to know him this year, but I feel excessively close to him for some reason. We just get along really well, and I am always having a good time when I hang out with him. I’m not sure if he thinks of me as one of his best friends, but I don’t really care because he’s great. Haha.
