My Saturday was off to a pretty good start. You know, wake up and go to film school. When we were dismissed around 5:15, I got on the train with David and Krshna, my two friends, to go home. We walked up to the front of the train because I think I read somewhere that it’s faster that way. It really hasn’t worked though. Anyway, we sat how we usually do: me sitting at the window, David next to me, and Krshna in front of both of us with all of his things spread out and all on the two chairs. I was looking out the window and talking to David about a movie and Krshna was doing math homework I think because he had his final in three days. David asked me for a tissue so I pulled my mini pack out and gave it to him and then looked outside the rest of the ride. The view outside was maybe one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in my life I think, and I’m not trying to be corny there or anything. I’m serious. It was dark because of winter and the sun setting, but it was the type of night sky where you could still see the clouds so it sort of looked like the sky was stained or something. I felt like I was in a movie. I don’t know if that makes any sense I’m not sure. Anyway I looked up and I was at my stop so I reached down to get my phone to text my mom like I usually do. But it wasn’t there. And I looked around everywhere and I couldn’t find it and David and Krshna helped but none of us could find it. I think it fell out when I gave David one of my tissues because that was the only time on the train that I opened my bag up. But like as soon as I realized it was gone it was super weird because I felt like a wave of dread washed over me. Usually it wouldn’t be as bad as it was, but my whole family was at a party twenty minutes away and I was supposed to uber to them. And of course because I am super lucky, both David and Krshna left their phones at home so I had no way of getting to them. Thankfully David let me go home with him so I could call my mom off of his phone and then do Find My iPhone off of his laptop. We got off the train and I was shaking really badly because I was super nervous and all and then we got on some Hulu bikes to go to his house. It was really nice because David offered his helmet to me because I was shaking so much but I said no because I felt bad. I don’t know, but I guess I just felt like I was being a pain or something I’m not sure. Anyway we ended up biking to his house and then went into his room because that’s where all his stuff was. And I sat on his bed and called mom off his phone. She told me to stay there until they were done and could come get me. David showed me all these videos that I honestly can’t really remember right now because I was just so nervous I don’t really remember that much from when I got to his house. I think we watched some engineering fails or something like that on YouTube and then a scene from Capote which was incredible. He made me play some video games on his PS2 but I was not the best at it. It’s not that I wasn’t good at it or anything, my hands were just shaking a lot so I didn’t have a lot of control over the remote. And then I had to help him make dinner for himself because he didn’t know how to make a goddamn plate of pasta. Then my mom came and got me. I am really thankful for him letting me go to his house because otherwise I think I’d just be stranded at the Metro station until fucking eleven at night which is pretty sketchy. I could tell he was trying to calm me down because the whole time I was there I felt like I was going to cry. And I never cry so that is super rare for me. It’s not that I was super scared or anything, I was just really worried, you know? But I guess in a weird way I’m glad it happened because I think I gained a lot of life wisdom.
