What did I do to deserve this??? Mar 2009























































































That’s what I ask myself every time I think about my friendship with Cornell. I have no idea what I did to deserve such a loving, honest, nurturing, funny, supportive, intelligent, creative friend like Cornell. It had been 9 months since I last saw Cornell and I was so nervous in seeing him again. Have we changed? Will it be the same or will it be weird? Will we still like one another and laugh all the time? That’s all I thought about when I walked over to meet him during my lunch break. I remember seeing him on the Corner of Park and George street and feeling my heart race just a little bit. He saw me and smiled and I smiled and from that very moment I knew NOTHING HAD CHANGED.

Me and Cornell were once again a duo that no one could mess with. I took him over to my favourite sandwich spot (big bite) and walked over to the harbour for a sit down. I have no idea what we laughed about but we just laughed and laughed and laughed. I have come to terms that whenever me and Cornell are around one another we act like 10 year old boys. We are super childish and just make the most out of any situation. We laugh at ourselves and at other people. We talk about our past trips and laugh about that. My mission for Cornell while he was in Sydney was to make sure he had an amazing time. I wanted him to meet all the people that I had become friends with.

Cornell trip to Sydney wasn’t just to have fun and see how Kangaroos get down and dirty. He came down to also help build me up again. I was still feeling really low and I had lost a lot of weight because of the break up. I would cry all the time and anytime I saw a “happy” couple I would just get into the wrong head space. I just felt a lot of pain inside and to me I felt like I had lost my bestfriend. The good news is that because of the break-up I had forced myself to go out and meet people and build friendships. Build on existing and new ones. Cornell timing was perfect. He always knew the right thing to say. He was there when I needed a hug. He pumped me back up with food and nutrition. I just felt really good when he was near by.

Anyways Cornell had a blast in Sydney and we did way to many things to possibly write about so instead I am going to make a list of things we did while he was here. Its not in order but who cares and this doesn’t include Mardi Gra.


1: We took a ferry over to the zoo and saw koalas and kangaroos’.


2: I cooked dinner for him and Christians house (I know we broke up but I still went over) long story


3: We went over to Kenny’s house for dinner. (Cornell liked Kenny and Kenny really liked Cornell)


4: went to the movies with my good friend Dennis and Stephanie (we saw slum dog millionaire which is amazing)


5: We went to dinner in surrey hills with my Citigroup friend Raoul and also to Bondi beach for dessert.


6: Went to Cronulla to have dinner at Steve and Wayne’s place. (The salad they made was amazing)


7: went to have breakfast at boy Charlton pool


8: went to breakfast with Kenny and Ben. Then we did the Coogee to Bondi walk and then got sunbaked at the beach

9: Had after work drinks at Cruise bar with Cam, Wayne, Steve, and Justin


10: Cornell went to the Chinese Gardens


11: Had after work drinks with my buddy Ruslan.


12. We walked around Paddington, Rushcutters bay, Surry hills.

Ok so the list is getting long and I can’t remember every detail since I have a horrible memory. Cornell was in Sydney for 12 days and I still left out all of Mardi Gra Weekend. So stay tuned because that is coming up next:

Enjoy
