  • A little less than an hour ago, I think I've just lived through the most sudden intense burst of happiness. Yes, I have a boyfriend. All these hours spent daydreaming about him, picturing us together and then coming back to reality telling myself "No, that won't happen. Now stop hurting yourself". Well, it did happen. Which means a whole new version of daily life has been created. When I was silently in love with him, I'd promised myself that I'd eat one specifically delicious lollipop that I have in my room, but only once we would be going out. I'm savoring it right now, still not believing what's happened. I think I've been smiling non-stop for an hour now. And I'm not even close to being done.
