I WANT A TRUE HORROR MOVIE WHERE ALL THE CHARACTERS ARE INTELLIGENT AND DO ALL THE RIGHT THINGS AND TAKE ALL THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS BUT STILL WIND UP GETTING KILLED BY THE ANTAGONIST

NOTHING IS SCARIER THAN DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN IN VAIN AND STARING IN THE FACE OF FUTILITY
(plus I would like not to yell at the characters for being dumb for once)

Guys I Didn’t Date: The Nickelback Boy

Whenever I hear a Nickelback song, I think of him.

It’s kind of funny, because I probably wouldn’t remember otherwise. But people like to hate Nickelback, so it brings up memories.

The timing was wrong. It always is. If I hadn’t been dating someone when I met him, he might have asked me out. And I might have said yes.

I won’t pretend to remember very much about Nickelback Boy. I’m sure we had things in common because we’d talk after group projects. And sometimes after class, we’d go to Carl’s Jr. to hang out. He’d get a breakfast sandwich or something. And I’d get coffee.

He told me that I should listen watch the Savin’ Me music video (back when music videos were still a thing). “You’ll like it,” he promised. And I did.

Once in a while, when that song is playing, I wonder what happened to him.

On Moving

I’m fairly certain that if I were a real adult, the prospect of packing up a studio apartment and moving somewhere not-too-far away wouldn’t be such a daunting task.

There are all of these things to think of. I can even answer some of my own questions, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t stress out over them.

  • Will all my stuff fit in my new apartment? I DON’T HAVE EXACT DIMENSIONS GUYS.
    Well of course it will. But you’re moving from a 550 square foot studio to a 750 square foot 1-bedroom. It’s got to fit in somehow.
  • But how the heck do you even move a refrigerator anyway? Never mind moving it down one flight of stairs, into a moving truck, and up a flight of stairs?
    Very carefully and with help? Any suggestions?
  • But who’s going to help me move my furniture?
    The people who said they would. It would be nice to have a few more (preferably strong) guys in the mix, but what can you do?
  • But what if they all cancel on me?
    They won’t! Hopefully…
  • I need to buy a bed. I’ve never bought a bed before!
    There are stores for this. Go to one.
  • There are utilities that I will need!
    Well yes. But remember setting them up for your apartment senior year? And for your current apartment? You are capable of doing this. It’s not even hard.
  • What internet package do I need? How many mbps can I get away with considering my whole life revolves around the internet?
  • Guess.
  • Can I afford this?
  • Dad said you could and he does CFO stuff for a living. You can probably trust his judgement here.
  • How will I pack in time? I mean, I’m gone for 12 hours a day 5 days a week.
    Lots of coffee. Maybe some alcohol. You’re moving from a studio, for crying out loud! How much stuff can you have? Besides, packing at the last minute is your specialty.
  • How will I clean everything?
    Yeah, that’s going to suck. But Amy, you are an adult and fully capable of this.
