I am a dark cloud swelling with rain

I am back home from a mini break from my home. I stayed over my friends house Thursday and Friday. We did so many different things that now that I'm home alone doing nothing, I feel the withdrawals. My friend lives in Glendale...he picked me up from my house and we walked all over LA. He lives very close to Silverlake, so we spent most of our time there. We went to the Trader Joe's in Silverlake to buy ingredients for our dinner and I we met the redheaded actress that plays in Mad Men (I don't know her name!). Then we went to a bunch of cafes....Casbah Cafe, Lamill Coffee Boutique, Intelligentsia, etc etc. We both sketch so we would sit in each place for a couple of hours and just draw draw draw. We watched movies....played with the dog, made dinosaur pots, ate, slept, laughed, cleaned, and walked! My favorite thing we did was walk in the middle of the night. I love to walk, but LA is so hot during the day that it's not enjoyable. At night, however, it's cool and quiet. We walked all over Glendale while talking~

I felt very relaxed and less depressed because I didn't have time to think about sad things. I am trying really hard to be more positive but sometimes the dark thoughts just take over ruin everything. I might sleep over next week too....if everything works out. We are planning a night hike...we'll see what happens.

I woke up in the morning and got scared because I didn't know where I was for a second. Then I saw the bed sheets and remembered.

We would take tea breaks out on the patio. I noticed a flyer that had been thrown onto the front steps of the house and realized it was a family friend's cafe's flyer.

Pre oven pie.

Ponchik is tired. I miss him.

My friend and I love succulents because they are perfect for Los Angeles and they are cute... We bought glass containers and filled them with dirt and rocks and planted succulents in them. We went to a toy store and bought mini dinosaurs and put them in and - - VOILA - - Dinosaur pots!

When I wasn't at my friends house, I got caught up on all the chapters of Kimi ni Todoke, watched the anime version of the manga, AND watched the live action movie (which I didn't like so much). What I found funny and sad at the same time was that I was EXACTLY like the main character, Sawako....in middle school and high school I was always alone and I was always shy and to myself. Even now I am too quiet at school sometimes but I have gotten better over the years~ Her extreme awkwardness is something I relate to completely. The only thing that isn't the same is that I don't have a Kazehaya. He is too good to be true. I thought manga was done already, but apparently there is more to come...yay.

I hope you are having a good weekend. Stay safe and happy everyone <3

PS. I will be seeing my favorite female singer on Wednesday! I'm gonna see Sia at The Wiltern in Hollywood! Nobody wanted to go with me, so I will be going alone, but I don't mind. I can't wait to see her live....it's been a wish of mine~

OKAY~ Take care <3
