We Went To Blockbuster

We Went To Blockbuster

Sadly, I can’t remember too much of what has happened in my past. It really sucks, and I wish there was a way I could recall more.

I’m in the process of auditioning for my third job as an instructor, and it is at NYSC. As I thought about the upcoming NYSC audition tomorrow, (they have gyms in Forest Hills) for some reason, I recalled going to a blockbuster in Forest Hills. At the time, my girlfriend lived in the area, and we’d go pick out some movies to watch over the weekend.

I find it fascinating, given the way the world is today, netflix, xbmc, youtube, and streaming content overall, that at one point, during this lifetime, I actually went to blockbuster with an ex girlfriend.

It may not sound like a big deal to you, but my time with that woman was extremely special to me, and remember this tidbit made me smile. It also makes me kind of sad, I really do hate the way we ended, and the fact that we completely lost contact. (She cut me off after our breakup.) But, the memory makes me smile. For many reasons, but being able to remember something like this means a lot to me.

Now if only I could remember what movie we watched, and how that went about. I can’t remember much, but I do remember we went to blockbuster.
