Well , new year, new ID. THere are Aliza (left) and Alice (right) BD No ,they arent sister, no even relatives, is one of those weird coincidences. Alice was born in Sinnoh and Aliza in Unova, and Aliza is a bit older and taller, but Alice is in better shape and is physically stronger. Btw, do you think Alice looks...to muscular for her age? (12 years old) also, a friend told me that she has to much arms but no abs. i dont know, what do you guys think?
Considering that ~NikChik-11 and I met all because of deviantART and the Horton Hears a Who! fandom (holy crap, dat fandom), I felt like this needed to be posted here.
I drove all the way down to Savannah, GA with my mom, my best friend Elizabeth (~kumori-tokage) and her mom, to check out the art college, SCAD. After talking about meeting for quite some time after knowing each other for five years, Nikki and I actually got to after my tour at the school (which was freaking awesome, by the way, and I recommend checking it out if you're looking into art colleges).
I honestly can't tell you how much my mind is blown, specifically since this happened in the span of like, three days (and I just got back now early on Thursday) . . . whiiiiich this whole thing happened on the second day. I was a giant ball of emotions. I was impressed by the school because it went above my expectations and I knew after the tour I'd be meeting this person I know so much about, even though we hadn't met face to face yet.
First, I can say that we were both seriously excited and nervous to meet each other in person for the first time ever. Like, to the point where we both felt sick. Elizabeth has a picture of me looking pretty freaked out, especially since the anticipation rose since Nikki and her boyfriend had to wait nearly half an hour for us to get done talking to some of the SCAD administrators and counselors after the tour of the school. I felt really bad about that. I'm sorrryyyy. LOL.
Anyway, I was afraid I was going to start crying or something the minute I saw them (LOLCASEY) or just act like a complete spaz, which I guess in a way is typical for me. Pfft. I couldn't really stand still. So, we had this walk around Savannah and we (mostly meaning Elizabeth's mom because she's a social butterfly with awesome, springy red hair, ahaha) asked a bunch of questions about the school and the town and . . . thheeeennn it starting down-pouring and storming, so we all took cover in a Panera Bread. Mwahaha. While we were stranded inside, we all just talked about random crap (no seriously, we talked about some weird things, pfft) and the school and town and about each other and . . .
It was fun. <-- Cannot truly explain how excited and awesome I was feeling.
My original problem was that I hadn't really told my mom or my friend's mom that I was thinking about meeting up with my friend who I met online, you know? I've told my parents all about the friends I have on here, but I never really mentioned wanting to meet up with any of them before (even though I have some of you on Facebook, bahaha). But Elizabeth helped me casually bring it up at the restaurant we were eating at right before the SCAD tour, and . . . I was surprised when the moms were encouraging me to meet Nikki and shit. Like, I was freaking happy. I was honestly afraid that they'd be controlling about it and not want me to do something like this, but . . . they thought it was awesome! They loved her and her boyfriend, which really did make my day. I WAS BUSTING AT THE SEAMS WITH FEELS, MAN. Eveeeennn if I was a bit awkward. I mean, I was less awkward than I thought I would be, but . . . I'm just an awkward, goofy person who . . . is pretty short. I told you! Pfft.
Soooo . . . yeah. I can now officially tell people that Nikki is a friend that I know "in real life" and that feels awesome. I feel like our friendship can now be taken more seriously by other people. PFFT. If that makes any sense whatsoever. XDD
Hopefully this is inspiration for some of you guys out there who are good friends with some of your dA buddies. I mean, honestly, for those of you who I know on here, I wouldn't mind meeting up some time in the future! I'd be totally cool with that. I . . . promise I won't be . . . super awkward. Maybe. Just don't feel intimidated. I'm about as intimidating as a bag of kittens. I think. So, maybe there could be a deviantART meet or something. Pfft. I mean, I don't really have that many friends on here left, but I wouldn't mind meeting a whole bunch of deviantART people. XDD
I'm still trying to process that this actually happened, and wasn't like, a hallucination. On both the ride there and back I was pretty loopy, especially on the ride back. Holy balls. Casey didn't get much sleep on the road. At all. Like, an hour. There was a lot of slap happy singing and other kinds of stupidity that I can't even explain. Elizabeth, thanks for coming on this journey with me. Pfft. I really did appreciate that, bro. I couldn't have done any of this without you. Seriously. This probably wouldn't have happened.
So . . . yeah. We were both very excited and we're happy that we finally got to meet. Annnnnd I'm sure that we'll hang out more some time in the future once we have the money to do that kind of stuff. Pfft. I seriously can't explain how awesome this was though. Our meeting didn't even destroy the universe, or bend the laws of life. I'd say that's a plus. *shot*
And just in case you don't know, ~NikChik-11 is on the left and the derp to the right is me. Yes. I was . . . kind of a hot mess after taking a tour in the muggy heat (yaaaay for the AC in the tour bus and the buildings) and then getting rained on. And then of course feeling like I was going to be sick because of how excited I was for this. Yessss.
I could ramble about this all day. PFFTTT. Rambling, how I love you so.
