Things to remember:

The smell of coffee next to J's bed
Three styrofoam cups, a mug, and a paper cup all of which had coffee in them at some point on Jerald's nightstand. We sat on his bed and watched tv and his roommate wasn't there. It just felt good to be alone together for a little while.

The sound of his laughter
Amazing that I did that, I made him laugh. I like making him happy. His smile can be overwhelming. A simple thing that holds a lot of power.

The taste of a new year
We kissed at midnight. Just a quick kiss on the lips, but very sweet.

The way I felt when I saw her
I heard Brad was dating her, but when I actually saw them together I felt sad.

Seeing the blood again after five months
In a moment of weakness...
