October 7, 2001

Lulu and I went to San Diego Friday night and stayed until Saturday night. It was so fun.
We got in around 10:30 and then talked with AV and eventually Brett and [his friend] came over and we all stayed up until 3:30 or 4 talking. It was so nice to have a male conversation. One with people who respect and love me. It was great. Then we woke up at 7:30am and went to Starbucks with AV because Saturday was her birthday. We planned on going to Ikea and going home, but we decided to stay and go to AV's party. So we went to Ikea, went back to AV's, napped and got ready and went to her party.
She had a HUGE Sweet 16 party and we got to hang out with Brett [and his friends] a bit. They had a huge astro jump and it was great! Everything was so fun.
We left at 8-something and got home at 2:30am because we got stuck in traffic for an hour.
Although we only stayed for a day it was so fun. And so worth it. Going on this trip showed me how stupid I was to get married so young and also, how much I love San Diego and people in San Diego.
Lulu and I want to move there. That would be fun.
It was just so freeing to get away from A and our fighting every single day. I am only 20, I need to act my age. I don't want a 30 year old's life yet, you know?
I need to go to sleep, but one more thing.
Before, I always imagine and speak of A and I as a package, but at this moment in time, no. I am one. He is one. Sad but true.
