Longboarding, MacBeth, & Denny’s

12/13/15-Sunday

This Sunday was a long one. At 1am, Tommy and I decided to go long boarding despite the cold temperature and how late it was. We bundled up and headed out. It was nice to just skate without a care in the world and the wind in my hair. After about an hour and half, we sat on a curb and caught up on life. Once it reached 4am, we decided to head back but suddenly realized we were really lost. Thank goodness for Google Maps or else we would’ve been stranded! We arrived back at Sigma abound 4:30am where we both crashed. Later that day, Faeln, Tyrell, and I went to Hollywood where we saw Macbeth in the ArcLight Cinemas Theatre. The movie was phenomenal by the way! When we were heading out to the car, I noticed everyone pointing at this man who was sitting behind us. We soon learned that it was Jake Gyllenhaal in the flesh! I guess this is common in Hollywood and everyone treated him like a regular, everyday person. We all piled in the car and decided a quick late-night meal and Denny’s sounded delicious. Fae and I ordered pancakes, but while doing this, a homeless man in the corner caught my eye. I overheardĀ the waiter ask what he wanted to eat and the man replied, “I don’t have enough money for food, but is it alright if I have a water and a warm place to sit in for now.” The whole time while eating, I couldn’t keep my eye off this man who seemed to be drawling something on an old, beat-up sketch pad. We got our check and headed to the front but, I turned around and headed straight to the homeless man. I sat down and asked what he was drawling. Once we showed us a few pictures, I offered to order him a meal which he couldn’t deny. It’s crazy. The people you meet in the most unexpected places that have a dramatic impact on you.
