when rory graduates high school (watching gilmore girls)
specifically during rory's valedictorian speech where she talks about her mum and grandparents. everyone is crying and usually this makes me cry too. told eamonn on facebook chat that it was a weird combination to be crying and eating an enchilada at the same time.
on the bus
i believe i wrote a "statement poem" about this particular time i cried on the bus and it went something like "this morning i openly wept on the bus". i was going past grey lynn shops on my way to uni. felt like shit was really bleak. seemed poignant as a motherfucker.
when my nana died
my dad called me and told me that my nana had died and so i got in the car and drove to my nana's house. i remember a distinct clenching feeling. when i went into the house i saw my mum and everything poured out of me. i hugged my mum and cried very hard. i also cried at the funeral, a few times during the service when they sang maori songs (they seem the saddest) and then at the end when we had to put flowers on her casket. my sister had her arm around me. i remember tissues deep in pockets.
i biked to my parents house and my dad told me there was an earthquake in christchurch. i sat in the kitchen watching the footage with my sister and my dad. i had to leave the room several times because i felt embarrassed to cry in front of my family. i felt so connected to it because i just thought "these people are my people". maybe it's silly. but i cried.
a person made me cry after saying words to me. i cried in the middle of ponsonby road and he hugged me because he probably felt like a huge asshole, which he was. afterwards he bought me burger fuel. i still thought he was a dick though, only i thought this whilst eating spud fries.
did an "almost" cry whilst sitting on k'rd waiting for my bus. wanted to talk to someone about it but i didn't, i just wrote eight pages in my notebook. i got home and i cried whilst listening to "the scientist" by coldplay. must have been chris martin's voice cracking with emotion that got me going. this is one of those times that i am sad that i can never quite explain it. i can never quite verbalise exactly what has come loose inside of me. i just know that something has.
gilmore girls again
the episode where rory rejects jess. jess looks supa fly in his leather jacket. i got extremely emotional when luke and jess hugged. fuckin' bros. then rory says she doesn't want to be with jess and there's this really good close-up shot of him, and i really feel like that's exactly how a normal person would take that kind of rejection. just real good acting performance from ol' milo. shit man. tears streaming down my face.
interested to know when you last cried and why (shit. reader participation)
