We had the most amazing weekend together!
On Friday, he and I walked all the way down Prospect Street into the downtown area. We walked around and observed all the goings on near Yale. We ate pizza at York Street and strolled through the New Haven Green. Before heading back to campus, we took a long detour and explored the other side of Temple Street, where the movie theater is, because I had never been back there. Apparently there is this enormous arts and humanities high school on the other end of College Street. We saw it on our way back. Once more through the New Haven Green before we began our journey back up Prospect Street.
Longest walk ever.
Saturday morning, and Zack was craving waffles. Luckily, there is a waffle maker in the dining hall. After waffles, we journeyed downtown once again. We were going to see a movie together. We were supposed to see this movie called True Story starring James Franco and Jonah Hill (I think), but the website had the wrong movie time listed. We ended up seeing While We're Young, with Ben Stiller and that guy from that old show Coach. Amanda Seyfried was in it too. It was a really great movie. It was funny and sad; there was drama and romance. What more could you ask for?!
It felt so nice to sit in the movie theater with someone's arm around my shoulder. Occasionally he would hold my hand. He has such soft hands.
After the movie, we came back to school and had dinner because at 7 we were going to see the Act II production of The Fantastiks. I was super nervous about the play. What if he didn't like it? Luckily, he loved it! His favorite was the character El Gallo. His costume was pretty awesome.
Zack is a huge Big Lebowski fan!
Far out, man!
I popped the dvd into the player when we got back and he and I watched the movie, laughed to our favorite parts, recited some of our favorite lines with the movie, and shared little tidbits that we each knew about behind-the-scenes stuff.
Sunday we slept in a bit. Finally, we rolled ourselves out of bed and walked downtown for coffee. He really wanted Dunkin Donuts. On our way back to school this time, we walked around and explored the open parts of the Yale campus a little bit. Right on the corner of College Street, this is this beautiful building with a gorgeous wooden door, with little metal flourishes in the corner. There is also this beautiful, painted ceiling. I have walked past this building hundreds of times and I never looked inside it. Yesterday, I finally did.
We have plans for more New Haven adventures next weekend. There is this pathway that leads underneath the Trumbull Street intersection that we want to explore and see where it leads.
We know where the entrance is, but where is the exit?
This was one of the best weekends I have had in a while. It was so nice to just have someone to spend time with and we really enjoyed each other's company. I hope it continues after Graduation, but if not, then it was just "enchanting to meet him", as Taylor Swift would say.
