Based on a reading error that I made the other day... Modern AU.
Brian: I've got us tickets to the latest car show
Roger: You've got us tickets? You?
Brian: Well... you said I never paid enough attention to what you're interested in unless I'm interested in it too, so... I thought this would be a good way to show you that I do pay attention and I do care about what you like, even though I might not be as interested in it as you are.
Roger: Oh. Well, that's nice of you 🥺. When is it then?
Brian: Three weeks on Saturday
Roger: Really? A car show 3 weeks on saturday... I've not heard of that one
Brian: Oh. Well maybe it's a smaller one, or new. You tend to go for the big hot rod exhbitions
~ Three weeks later ~
Some kids dressed up run passed them as they turn the corner
Roger: Lot of kids here, it seems
Brian: Yes. The poster said it was a family event, for kids of all ages
Roger: You're telling me this now?
Brian: Sorry, I thought that was the norm for car shows
Roger: Oh. No- Well, I think it depends. The one with the refurbished Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was quite kid friendly I suppose.
Brian: I'm sure it'll be good-
They stop at the entrance of the stretch of empty land that is being used for the "car show". It's very... aimed at kids. There's a lot of red balloons in the shape of cars and bizarrely, some that look like bees that are also in the shape of cars, and a bouncy castle in the shape of a tow truck, brown with a texture effect to make it look rusty.
There's a faint hum of music as two songs from two areas clash in the open air. One song is being played in a marquis somewhere in the distance. It sounds a bit country-rock-ish. Nearer sounds like a doo wop song that reminds Brian of The Platters.
Roger: Er... Bri, when you saw the advert for this car show, what did it actually say?
Brian: It, erm, it said "Coming Saturday the 14th, Cars in the Park, for kids of all ages."
Roger: ... Brian.
Brian: ... Featuring 50s classics...
Brian: Maybe that meant music instead of cars...
Man approaching them with balloons: Howdy Partners, welcome to Radiator Springs! Do you have tickets or would you like to purchase some on entry?

It’s okay if I’m not your favorite chapter you have written, but I hope you sometimes smile when you flip back to the pages I was still apart of.
What is calm?
Is it an adopted attitude or is it an inherent characteristic?
Is it a way of life that you borrow or that you breed?
Does it refer to a condition of the mind or a condition of the heart?
Is it only emotional or do you feel it physically too?
Who is calm?
What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven't happened yet.
The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.
Don’t chase people. Be yourself, do your own thing, and love people. The right people - the ones who really belong in your life - will come to you, and stay.
It’s easy to take off your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time. But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… that is being naked.
Attitude is everything.
If you feel lost, you just have to start trying anything and everything. Only action brings change. You can't just sit there and overthink it.
We are born in one day. We die in one day. We can change in one day. And we can fall in love in one day. Anything can happen in just one day.
Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.
Update and thoughts #13
Monday 16 May 2022
I am so excited for tomorrow as a fellow ambivert (both introvert and extrovert) I am very eager to socialise with people tomorrow. Today, I am preparing myself to be in a great attitude and mood for tomorrow. I will try to smother any unnecessary anxiety.
But honestly being embarrassed by yourself is just so pointless. I think you should find where this feeling comes from and move away from it. I've been bullied and teased so many times, but now, that I am growing I have been pinpointing the root and healing myself from there. Introspection really helps as you realise that a lot of the hate that gets directed to you stems from their inner problems and not yours (but this doesn't apply to REAL forms of mistakes that you have to address)
Also, I want to mention that I do not answer any messages that are sent privately to me, I am not comfortable with it (Unless you ask me first and I have a rough idea of what it is). BUT I will definitely accept any asks and will be happy to answer anything.

In my eyes, good conversation is the birthplace of true attraction. So open up and share with me every encounter and experience that shaped you into who you are today. Tell me all about your hopes and dreams and captivate me with your passions. Arouse my curiosity and you'll have my attention.
