Movie and Music Day with Tommy | 30 January 2022

Tommy and I met up on Sunday and it felt so good to see him. We both agreed that three weeks was a long time and we don’t want to wait that long again.

The morning started out hectic because at 8am he texted me about rescheduling since it was so cold. I asked him, “can we just do a movie day at your house? I really want to see you.” He agreed and had to ask his parents. He fell back to sleep and I didn’t hear from him when I left the house at 12:30 pm. I was in anxiety mode at that point, left many texts and a few messages. When I didn’t hear from him at 1pm, I ordered skating tickets and took the el into Center City. I was going to stop off at Jiggy Coffee before skating at 2:45. I was almost in tears because I wanted to see Tommy.

When I got off the el, I saw he read my texts and I decided to give him a call. He answered and we chatted. I told him I was already in Philly, but I wanted to see him and I could take Lyft to his house from 11th Street. He wanted to see me too and he said it was okay for me to come over. I ordered Lyft and I was at his house by 2:30.

His parents welcomed me in and as I waited for him, I chatted with his parents for a bit. Tommy came downstairs, gave me a big hug and kiss, then we went upstairs and watched Silver Linings Playbook. Before I started the movie, I apologized for going into anxiety mode, and he said, “it’s okay, honey. I know how you feel and I missed you too. I’ve been overthinking and in my head for the past two weeks. I really missed you.” He agreed that three weeks was too long. We cuddled up and watched Silver Linings Playbook. Tommy enjoyed the movie and it just felt good cuddling.

After, we listened to YouTube and jammed to these rap tunes:

As we were listening, I took a selfie of us enjoying the music. At one point, we were acting so silly dancing and head bopping that we had a laughing fit, where he hugged and kissed me.

Then we had dinner and went back to his house, and built some Lego cats. He agreed to a selfie with our creations.

Gosh, I love him. I can’t wait to see him next weekend.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m very happy to see how this story ended, dear friend, with the pictures of you and Tommy to prove it. I learned decades ago in the TED Talks we attended in est Training and NLP that a relationship is like a river. You can’t push a river and you can’t pull it. You just need to let it flow in the direction it wants to go, and embrace all the twists and turns it takes along the way. I’m delighted that you had a wonderful time with Tommy, doing many of the things you both enjoy. Thanks for posting samples of the music you and he found on YouTube. I enjoyed the introduction to German – Polish rapper and songwriter Malik Montana. I also like how Drake samples Right Said Fred on his rap track. I have two or three albums and mixtapes by Gucci Mane and Lil Durk. I truly enjoy this type of music.

    Thanks for bringing us up to date on how your weekend turned out. I hope the two of you can get together again soon. Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
