This past weekend started out pretty awesome. I loved being in Colorado with my family. It was so much fun being on the mountains, listening to country music, and eating some great Southern/Western food.
And then yesterday, I had a health emergency. Since my flight was leaving in 4 hours (or so I thought), I couldn’t go see a doctor so I just decided to wait until today and book make an appointment to see a doctor at school.
Lovely. So then I got to the airport. I said goodbye to my parents, they told me to stay strong and call them as soon as I see the doctor. I held back tears, told them goodbye, and proceeded to my flight. It was delayed 4 times. That last time, we were even told to get off the plane and ended up having to re-board it an hour and a half later. Within that time period, I could have seen a doctor in Colorado. But no, so I landed in Chicago very late at night. I missed all my classes, and just went to sleep.
That bring us to today. Fearing my appointment, I went to grab some coffee to calm myself. On my way out, who do I see looking handsome than ever. “Heart”. He caught my eye, smiled, and turned back to the girl he was talking to. Can you say strangers? I continued walking my way. But noticed he was on the opposite street, so I decided to have a conversation with him. I shouted “HEY!” and he waved. I asked him a question jokingly, and he smiled. And then we reached our places, I shouted “BYE!” and he waved again. Did you catch that reader? Him- Silence. Me- Words. I hate this. I can’t believe someone that has become so close to me is like a stranger now.
Anyways, I just got back from my appointment. Everything is fine and in the process of healing.
I already miss my parents and the peacefulness of Colorado. Seeing “Heart” today gave me a reality flash, I am back to being a crazy busy science major without a little love in my life.
