While I was planning on writing about my trip to San Francisco, I have had absolutely no time to do so. I have another vacation coming up, so hopefully I'll be able to get something down, but in the meantime, this story cropped up.
I’ve been sick for about a week, and for some reason, the combination of illness and whatever meds I’m on is making me act very, very loopy. I had spent most of the week in bed studying, but by Thursday, I’d reached the point where I was energetic and giddy enough to decide I was done being cooped up, and so I decided to go out with friends.
After somehow managing to get lost on the short walk from my dorm to my friend’s car, a group of us drove to the movies, where we watched the final installment in the Hunger Games series. It was awesome, and even though I was rather dizzy and bemused, I was able to follow along well enough.
After the movie, we dropped two of our friends off at home, and decided to go out driving for a bit. We made our way out to a beach, but the night was foggy, and the beach looked even creepier than usual, so we continued on. We traveled down a cliffside road overlooking the ocean, one we’d traversed more than once during the day, but had somehow managed to forget that it was one-lane, adding to our general disorientation. We had to pull over more than once to allow cars to pass by us, and the fog thickened, mingling with the darkness and making it almost impossible to see. At one point we had to stop the car because the road curved and it looked like it disappeared.
My friend: Well. This is fun. Do either of you see the road?
Me: Well… it probably didn’t just end right here. But it did just magically turn into a one-lane road, so who knows?
Eventually we were able to catch the reflection of a street sign, so we were able to save ourselves from driving off a cliff. We drove around for a little bit longer, but the night ended not long after that. Although going out and overexerting myself left me feeling absolutely awful the next day, I think it was worth it; life’s made up of little adventures like these, and sometimes it’s worth it to act a little recklessly.
I have no idea what I'm doing.
