I had a list of things to do together.

November 23rd, 2015, 12pm

I wanted to watch the sunset with you at multiple places, like those bleachers that reminded me of The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. I told you it was my favorite movie and that we should find time to watch it together. It was all about time with you.

I hoped to take you to my favorite fancy date spot - that rotating lounge with 360 degree views of New York City - if we made it to the end of the year. That kind of thinking has never been beneficial to me. Or you - when you suggested to go kayaking near your childhood home right as fall was ending.

I always believed that the key to living is experiences - by learning something new, tasting something strange, or exploring a different town. You were up for all of that. You’d take me places and we would end up spending way too much time at an arcade. We had known each other for less than a month.

I was thrilled when you wanted to take me to this lake somewhere upstate. I think I tried to explain how much that meant to me - you did to me what was usually unreturned. I’m used to being the one to show someone something cool, exciting, or weird. It felt nice to be on the other side - a breath of fresh air.

We didn’t make it to that lounge and I’m so hung up over it.

David Wade, Luis and Inderjeet said thanks.

Maybe I'm mental.
