BFF’s and Summer
So it’s really starting to feel like summer again. I’ve been going to the beach quite often and seeing my friends a lot more recently. Earlier this week I saw my good friend Alex. We met about two years ago when we worked for Gap. Last year we became really close and soon he became someone very important in my life. He recently moved to Long Beach, to this super cute place, too. So it looks like I’ll have to be doing a lot more partying in the LBC area (maybe not so much hood-LBC as much as gay-LBC).
Last night I finally got together with my friend Carmen whom I hadn’t seen in what feels like forever. I met Carmen the summer before my sophomore year of high school. Although my first thought was trying to determine whether she was a boy or a girl, as soon as we began to talk we instantly clicked and I knew she’d become my best friend. So yesterday, as usual, food brought us together (we had California Plate, a teriyaki place). We caught up over dinner and I was reminded how much I miss my friends. It seems like I never see my friends nowadays. We all have lives and work and school so it’s not as easy to get together. Carmen usually makes funny faces that make me laugh. I hope go capture some of them on video and maybe you’ll see what I mean in one of my YouTube videos.
After dinner with Carmen, my friend Jessica and her little sister Mirella and I decided we needed to dance! My friend Tony suggested Club Lucky at the House of Blues Anaheim. We met up with Tony and his boyfriend there and danced the night away! What’s great about gay clubs is that if you feel like dancing, you’re for sure at the right place. lol Good dance music, hot go-go dancers, oh, and bubbles! (ergo my tweet)
After a few [overpriced] drinks, we continued dancing. I always such a great time with my friend Jessica. We met in middle school and have been friends ever since. (Yay Jess!) Oh, at some point in the night Jessica and I made plans to go to Europe next year (haha). So it looks like Euro Trip 2011 will be amazing! Maybe it’ll push me to learn another language or two.
It seems like every time I go out with my friend Tony I’m always laughing my ass off! I feel if I were someone else looking at Tony and I interacting, I’d find us rather strange. Whether we’re at a club or bar or just lunching or shopping I always crack up at our conversations.
After the club we did what all the Hollywood socialites do: stopped at a fast food joint. There’s nothing quite like Chicken McNuggets at 1:00AM after a long night of man-on-man dancing!
I think I need to see a lot more of my friends, reuniting with old friends, and being open to new friends, too.
Last summer was easily the best summer of my life. Maybe this summer will be even better.
