DO YOU EVER REALISE HOW AMAZING IT IS TO KNOW A SECOND LANGUAGE
LIKE ANY OTHER LANGUAGE IS JUST GIBBERISH BUT SOMEHOW YOU UNDERSTAND THESE DIFFERENT WORDS AND THEY MEAN THINGS AND JUST
LANGUAGES ARE SO FREAKING FASCINATING HOW DO OUR BRAINS EVEN FUNCTION WHAT ARE LANGUAGES
i remember way too many small details about people so i have to act dumb sometimes so i don’t freak them out
*friends eyes are watering for no reason*
"Are you wearing that mascara you’re allergic to but wear any way cause you think it’s cute"
"…..when did I tell you that"
"…….like…..two years ago"
Different but still the same
I had been been hanging onto the show this year, hoping the joy I had for it hadn’t died out too. One of the worst parts about Christmas last year, and my birthday this year, was the fact that I couldn’t find any reason to be happy, I just wanted the days to pass quickly and that feeling…coming from someone who loved every type of holiday, it’s so sad.
So for the Royal Show, which I hold in very high regard, I was hoping this year wouldn’t be any different. But it was different. It’s obviously going to be different this year. What stayed the same though was that I was happy. I spent a long day there, with lots of people i know, took lots of lovely photos, enjoyed the show as I always have, and managed to not dwell on things too much.
I think what helped that happen was the fact that I haven’t gone to the show with my parents for a long time now. Going with friends, going as a groom, doing these things allowed me to graduate long ago from seeing the show as a family tradition…to just a tradition. The people I go with might change but the show is always the show, and that’s why I’m there.
