"The Longest Time" (feat. Lori's Diner)
I have been trying to grasp with the fact that I have not left the Bay Area in 5 years. 3 of which I was trapped. Well trapped at the hospital and my refusal to deal with the public eye. Last year as we all know, Rapunzel started letting her hair down. Literally, my hair is long af now. So watch out Punzie, this boy hasn't whipped it back and forth in forever. I'm so used of being stuck in this loop. My life replays like an episode of "I Love Lucy" or something. It's been stuck in this zone that hasn't been broken out of. As I sat and had breakfast with Courtney at Lori's Diner, it occurred to me, my life is basically frozen in time, just like this diner. It's a classic, i'm a classic, but i'm also modern and it shows that I haven't been out in the world, other than SF. I'm like Ariel from" The Little Mermaid". When Ariel comes to shore with legs for the first time, she is so intrigued by the world around her. She's seeing things she hasn't seen. I felt that way last year, well a little. I want to grow upon that and feel things that I haven't felt for the longest time. I used to go to the Roscoes Chicken & Waffles diner that was down the street from my apartment, back home in LA. It's similar to this Lori's diner that me and my sister went to. I used to walk in and the waiters knew who I was. They would give me mac & cheese and comfort food. I guess I truly looked like a lost 17 year old puppy, trying to figure out the world. Is it bad that I kind of miss that? I don't think so. I think my soul is telling me it is time to feel discomfort again. I have a lot of re learning to do. Re learning what this life is and what I am capable of doing with my situation. Stepping over the bay area town line is something that is major for me. If i'm being honest, a few pages ago, I said I felt like there is not that many stories left for me to tell in SF. I still stand by that, but I feel there is just a little more to my SF story that I have to tell. In order for me to do that, I need to go away for a commercial break and just check out what a new classic looks like. Kind of like animated Cinderella vs live action Lily James Cinderella. They are both classics, new and old. But as we saw in the new version, there was still so much left to tap into, that the animated version did not. This diary has seen so much personal growth. I mean 111 pages ago, this version of me did not exist. Last year created something special, now it is time to see how special can reinvent itself into something more.
