anyone near any of these shows who doesn’t go is FUCKING UPPPPPP
I feel like it’s my duty to spread the word that Polaris, the band behind the theme song and soundtrack for The Adventures of Pete and Pete, is touring the east coast and midwest this fall. I know you’ve been waiting your whole life for this so you better make it your business to go if you can. Are you waiting for October yet?
The list of dates is here
for a few days now I have been trying to gather my thoughts and write about what is going on with my life, but it is so hard to even begin. unless you have been in this situation, you cannot possibly imagine what it is like to be in a relationship for 7 1/2 years (two of which were spent engaged) and then to suddenly…not be in it anymore. you cannot prepare for all the weird thoughts rushing through your brain. I have experienced the widest possible range of emotions in my life in possibly the shortest amount of time.
I want to say that even though it is super sad and weird, it is ultimately going to be the best thing for both of us and I have absolutely no negative feelings about the time spent in this relationship. kyle is an amazing person who deserves to live the happiest fullest life possible, and I believe he will. we are navigating through remaining friends despite the fact that we now have to move apart and separate all of our feelings and possessions and even pets. we are even managing to spend time together reframing and rebuilding our relationship as friends while still staying in the same house for the next few weeks. I understand that this is going to be a weird change for our friends but please know that both of us are happy to talk through any weirdness, answer questions, and try our best to peacefully coexist in the same social circle and town whenever possible.
right now my life is in a place of total upheaval (in more ways than just this) and basically everything that could possibly change is going to change, but I am ultimately going to be very okay. I appreciate all of the support we have already received from the people we know, you cannot begin to understand how much it means to both of us. we love our friends and it is not a mistake that any of them are in our lives.
I am going to spend the next few months moving in with one of my best friends, relearning how to exist as a single adult (something I have not been since I was 22), and trying my best to work on myself and make changes for the positive. that said, if any of you have any really fucking delicious easy recipes for a fuckup who has no idea how to cook, now would be a good time to share.
thank you for listening.
reblogging for your information. by the way, we broke up like yesterday and this pic is from today, so clearly things aren’t so bad?
SAD NEWS Y’ALL. Caren and I have decided to take a step back from our relationship and move on in the world as friends. Our time together was fruitful but sadly it has come to an end. We remain close friends and consider each other to be incredible people. No ill will or hate. We are both excited to live our lives and support each other fully. Feel free to console us and check in on our achy hearts. We are handling it surprisingly well.
