Buying a dress for college graduation seems about as dumb as buying a wedding dress. Which is why I wore a dress of Dani's. It was a little short, but that's what that huge graduation gown is for, right? To cover up how secretly slutty you look.
Alex did not come to my graduation. I don't know what else to say about that. Josh's dad called me two days before and asked if he should make dinner reservations to include Alex, and I said no. Because I couldn't trust her to hold back from making obnoxious comments and ruining everything.
I saw two girls get proposed to right after graduation. I get everyone being in a different place in life and all that, but just can't imagine feeling old enough at 21 or 22 to be engaged. Right now I feel about old enough to move in with Josh. The idea of spending two months with him, out of the country, is scaring me. What if we get in a fight in a foreign country? Then there will be nobody to talk with - I don't speak Spanish or Italian well enough to talk about big things. Dani called my Italian "Litalian" - a little Italian.
We found people to stay in our apartment while the four of us are gone. This makes me really happy because it feels better to keep paying my side of the rent. It turns out people pay more to rent for just a short time. When I found out, it was such a huge urge to tell Josh we should find a way to buy a rental property and just rent it out all the time.
