Well, here it is! The eve before the cottage weekend! SO MUCH EXCITE!
I’m going to keep this short and sweet so that I can hit the hay real quick, sleep and have it be tomorrow already! I hope I can sleep despite all the excitement.
It was a great day today – all my favourite coworkers were in, and we had a blast during our night shift since all of management left.
Dylan and I ended up getting into a really deep discussion about how sometimes the bad things that happen in life end up leading to really good things, and how you never know in the moment how one event in your life will affect your future circumstances. He told me a really cool parable kind of story with an amazing moral at the end which tied into our discussion. We also talked about how hard it is to maintain that conscientious mind frame once you become aware of yourself and your thoughts. It’s one thing to get there and break out of that “societal prison”, but to maintain it is the real struggle, especially when you’re bombarded by it and constantly surrounded by it on a daily basis. We talked about how people seem to not even want to break out of their comfortable mind frame because of the idea of “ignorance is bliss” – people are so okay with being on autopilot because it’s comfortable. And then, they wonder why they’re so unhappy.
All in all, it was a really great conversation. I like how he thinks! I like that how even though he’s so young, he’s so aware of himself and these kinds of thoughts. Not a lot of people break out of the bubble.
I’m hoping that this weekend will allow me to get to know him in an outside-of-work kind of basis, because we didn’t really get to hang out too much during the concert or St. Patty’s weekend. We’ll see how things go! Either way, I’m just looking forward to getting away for a bit.
Another interesting thing that occurred today – Nick messaged me and asked me if I was home. When I told him that no, I was at work, he explained that he had just been passing by, so I guess he wanted to stop by for a bit. Once again, things happened as they were meant to. I think the universe wants me to maybe experience this weekend first, clear my head, before we can actually see each other again (if we’re meant to, of course). We shall see! I have some days off next week, so maybe the next time he asks (if he does), I’ll happen to be free. Either way, still going with the flow.
Alright! Time for bed. Oh man, I have such a good feeling about this weekend. I don’t know, I can’t explain it. But it’s there. Here’s to living life!
I hope the next time I write a log, I’ll be writing it while sitting on the dock, feeling the first rays of the rising sun on my face as the wind blows gently through the trees, with the sound of the water gently lapping at the dock. Ahh. I honestly cannot wait. I love this place so much.
