Friday started like any other Friday. I reluctantly dragged my ass out of bed to get ready for my five hour class.

As soon as I got home, I made lunch and read Tony Robbins’ Awaken the Giant Within by the pool for two hours. I guess the apartment complex pools (we have three) are ‘closed’ for Winter or something, because there’s been a damn lock on the gate FOREVER. But I hop it anyways. 

Afterwards, I cleaned my room, did laundry and some homework. I went to the gym around 5 and worked out chest, tri’s and abs for an hour or so. I walked into my apartment, with the intent to make my post-workout protein shake and than get some more homework done at Starbucks.

Change of plans…
As soon as I walk in the doorway, my roommate was sitting on the couch, acting so weird and pointing her phone at me. I asked Dorie what the hell she was doing and she told me she "was fixing our Goggle TV". Before I could even shut the front door, someone grabs me from behind and screams.
I figured it was our third roomie Nikki scaring me. We have scare wars, so this wasn't anything new. haha I always scare her, so I figured she was getting some much deserved revenge.
Ohhhh no. It wasn’t my roommate. Nikki was at work.
It was a male. I had never seen this face in real life before, though. I stared at this guy and blanked for a split second, unable match the face to the person.
And then it hit me! I couldn’t breathe. My mind started racing at 100 miles.
The guy I met on Instagram 6 weeks ago was standing two feet away from me!


I literally had to ask myself if I was dreaming. I have some funky lucid dreams, but this seemed all too real. I looked over my shoulder and Dorie sat on the sofa filming the entire thing. He and my roommate had been planning this surprise for three weeks.

Those bitches! I had NO idea!
After saying “I can’t believe you’re here right now” at least a bajillion times, we stood in the kitchen and talked for a bit. I was a bit shaken up and awkward. Dorie left for work shortly after, so I called Angela and left her a ‘call me back right now!’ voicemail.

We met up at Mellow Mushroom with she and Sarah. He kicked it with my friends ,which was cool. After grabbing pizza, we drove across the street and hung out with Dorie at the yogurt place she works at. When we got home, we watched Limitless and then went to bed.
The next day we got some work done, ate lunch at the pool, worked out at the gym and ended the night by watching an awesome documentary called Stalked: Somebody’s Watching.
Sunday morning he, myself, my two roommates and another friend grabbed Denny’s and he left for Atlanta after brunch.
That was my very unexpected and crazy weekend in a nutshell.
