|Bye-bye brian's shoes. 1/1/2013|
Kicked off the new year with some friends at Nolan's. After watching the countdown (with Psy!) we ventured upstairs where we made steaming cups of tea and played real-life mario party. AKA we stuck a water ballon on the kitchen faucet and took turns running around and turning on the water. Whoever the ballon explodes on gets eliminated and the next round begins. It sounds stupid but was actually really amusing in a stressful kind of way. I was pretty relieved when I finally got out on the 7th round lol. Then around 3 am we bundled up and headed out to the driveway where we symbolically lit Brian's old shitty sneakers on fire with olive oil and watched them get reduced to ashes. It was freezing outside but the fire was warm, although we had to stay clear of the black chemical-infused smoke that the shoes were giving off haha. Thomas kept joking that one of us was going to become a pyromaniac - "first come shoes, then buildings!" but he was the one who kept throwing little sticks and leaves in the fire with a little smile on his face…hmm….Once the shoes had given all they had left, we ventured inside and played mario party and brawl until 7. My eyes were on fire so I decided to get some sleep, but they were so goddamn loud that around 8:30 all the people who were trying to sleep just gave up and we decided to grab some breakfast at the Diner. The phrase "sleep terrorism" was coined, which couldn't be any more appropriate. Literally when Thomas had run out of things to say around 8, he picked up a random bag of pretzel chips and started to (loudly) read off the nutrition facts. Did you know that each chip has 10 calories? I wasn't aware until this year, but I'm so glad to finally know. I feel so informed. When I finally got home at 10, I crashed until 4:30 in the afternoon. For the rest of the day I finished sorting my high school papers and packed them away in a big box. Along the way I unearthed piles of old artwork which was a huge blast from the past. My drawings from ten years ago are faaar from pretty, trust me, but I got a kick out of shuffling through them. Which reminds me, I definitely plan on drawing more this year! My sketchbook barely has anything from 2012, how sad.
