Easy Bake Ovens.

12 Nov

When I was a kid, I remember I always wanted an Easy Bake Oven when I was 7 or 8. I never got one, and I was just looking at the Target Black Friday ad and oh… the nostalgia. Like I don’t still want one, but I could easily get one now to make up for all those years of longing for an Easy Bake Oven but I think I’d be sadder if I got one.

Speaking of Black Friday, I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED. Everyone else thinks of Thanksgiving as a time for family and turkey and pumpkin pie, but things have always worked differently in my family. We get way more excited about Black Friday than we do Thanksgiving itself.

My mom usually works on Thanksgiving since her hospital needs people to work on holidays. She gets paid more so she’s like whatever. I like my family because we don’t need a special occasion to do something together. We can wait until another time to get a turkey and a pie. For some people, what we do may sound ridiculous but I don’t know. It’s just how my family’s always done things.

I was talking to my mom about college yesterday. If I go where I want to go, I really only get to see my family in person a few times every year. I’ll come back for the summer and for winter break, and they might fly out for Thanksgiving, but otherwise I’m going to be thousands of miles away. That makes me sad. I’m like Jesus Navas; I gots myself a homesickness problem. I feel like the only way to overcome that is to go away and establish myself, you know? I’m scared but more than anything, I’m excited. So so so so so so so excited 🙂

I want to reread some of my old posts, but I’m scared to open old wounds. You know how it is.

Especially when things are really solid right now.

And I know I don’t have anything to worry about, but I can’t help but worry.

I think I’m going to take a deep breath, take a few steps back, and stop being so much of a perfectionist as always and just let whatever is meant to happen happen 🙂
