took the bus from nyc to ithaca, ny. ithaca will always be one of my favorite cities in the world.
then my best friend from college, manuel, picked me up and whisked me to cortland, ny, which is 30 mins from ithaca and where he lives.
i'm so blessed to have good friends in my life. i'm shooting his wedding for free, i offered it. and i've never offered to that to anyone else, but he is family.
we were talking and i realized that i've forgetten a lot of things that manuel and i have done, mainly because of time. but a memory: about 6 years ago, we went to nyc to see Rent because it was going off broadway. and then we kept going to the lottery for Wicked but couldn't win it, so we ended up seeing Spring Awakening and Passing Strange. finally, we gave up and bought tickets from scalpers at $200 each to see Wicked. i'm glad we did.
5 years ago, we went hiking to the white mountain portion of the appalachian trail and that was when he first started dating Dom. and now i'm in their house, and they are getting married in August and i'm their bestwoman, and i'm happy for them.
