There's Always A Little Good In the Midst of Something Bad | 5/12/16


Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you all had an amazing week.

I apologize in advance for the lack of content this week. This week has been a crazy week. I've been super exhausted from working a new full time office job, been trying to figure out what I want to do after graduating, next year, and overall, have just been having a stressful week.

Nevertheless, I've had a recent shocking experience that has really made me appreciate life itself and the people within it.


Adam and I got into another car accident. Again, it wasn't Adam's fault, and the other driver just ended up lane changing without signaling and looking--ramming right into us. We are fine with no major injuries, but Adam's right mirror is hanging from a thread and the whole right side of Adam's car is scratched up--can't even open the passenger door.

Even the second time, it doesn't get easier. I'm just happy we got out, again, with no major injuries and are promised another day.

Originally, that night was supposed to be date night--we were going to clean his car, grab dinner, and hang out--but obviously the accident foiled those plans. Instead, we ended up spending our afternoon at the collision centre and on the phone with insurance. Nevertheless, we still had an amazing night together and made the best of it.

On our drive to the collision centre, I had to hold Adam's mirror, the whole drive, to make sure it wouldn't fall off. We were laughing hysterically the whole ride because my hand kept cramping and from a bystander's point of view, this probably looked really funny.



When we got back to his house, we decided to go into his backyard to throw some knives. It was really relaxing because it helped us blow off some stress. Adam and I felt a lot less tense while doing it and had so much fun. I was laughing so hard because I got so many knives to stick in the wood while Adam was getting frustrated at how good I was at it. It was so funny! We probably spent a good hour or so throwing knives and laughing our faces off.

After Adam got off the phone with insurance, his parents let us take their SUV to Starbucks so we could grab dinner. We bought $30 worth of Starbucks wraps and drinks, and spent another hour just eating and talking. Adam and I don't see each other often, anymore, because we are both always working. When we do see each other, it is usually days where we have to do errands or go to events for family or friends, so it was so nice to have this one-on-one time with him.

Even though we got into an accident and it ruined our original plans, I'm just so thankful that Adam and I were okay and the man who hit us was okay. I'm thankful that Adam and I can still have a good time, despite bad things that happen. It reflected a lot about our relationship--that in bad times, we stick together and make the best of it. And that we did, last night. I just feel so thankful and lucky.

When life gets rough, just remember--it could be worse.

  2. Oh man, it must've been so scary! I'm really glad you're both okay. Also (and this is coming from a girl who used to do medieval swordfighting) throwing knives to relieve yourself of stress is extremely badass!!

    The first week at a new job is always exhausting, or so I hear, so keep at it. I'm sure it'll get better in time. *hugs* :)

    1. Well, this wasn't the first time we've been in an accident so I was less shaken up than the first time. I kind of saw it happened, and in my head I remember thinking "Oh no, not again". But thankfully, this time wasn't as bad. Thanks, Rav!

      Haha! Thanks! It was so much fun. Wait... YOU USED TO DO MEDIEVAL SWORDFIGHTING?! What can you NOT do, Rav? You live such a cool life!

      Thanks again, Rav. Hopefully it gets better! The virtual hug make me feel a bajillion times better *hugs*
