Running Into High School Crushes

There's something about her voice that I'm not quite over. I'm in love with the sad happiness in her voice. To feel anything as much as she feels in this song is my only dream. I love the part of the video where she's strumming a guitar with no strings. It means lots to me. I also love that she is not "conventionally" beautiful. You have all your senses to focus on the lyrics. The melody. The voice. 









I ran into a boy at a bar this Friday night. This boy was someone who DEFINED my high school life. I loved everything about him. His clothes, his eyes, his art, his music, his smile, his shyness. Everything. I was obsessed with this boy. In every single page of my junior high and high school journal I wrote about him. No joke. Every single page mentioned him. For 7 whole tormenting years I longed for this boy. And on a drunken Friday night 6 years later I told him so. HA! He laughed and smiled. Then said "I had the biggest crush on you. I thought you were the coolest person. The feeling was mutual Rosy. Quite mutual." 




Shit.

Rosy! Thank you so much for your comment on maggie's blog! I got that second dress at h&m (one of my only h&m success stories). I got it in April, but you never know - they may still have it online or something! Wouldn't hurt to look, and if they do have it still I bet it's cheaper than when I bought it!

i STILL think about my college crush, constantly, and have dreams about him. i sort of dread running into him, though, the chances are remote.

That's a beautiful song, thanks for the introduction. And I think she's pretty conventionally pretty!

Ok, best story ever! I mean, a bit unfortunate for your high school self, but isn't it fantastic to know now!?

That is an amazing story! Bittersweet I guess but still must have been an amazing moment!!!

That sucks that you didn't make your feelings known! I'd say you should always go for it and tell, but I do that and so far it hasn't worked out, either. Hahaha.

I saw one of my high school crushes a while ago -- He got so UGLY. I was shocked. Can't remember what I saw in him now.

Oh my gosh! That kind of hurt me a little.
I only had one "crush" my whole life I never wrote about him or talked about him (I didn't want anyone to know EVER).

I too hope there is more to this story, and if there isn't you should make more to this story :)
