20DoW: Day 12





Day 12: A Special Date

My idea of a special date goes like this: it’s a nice day. Clouds in the blue sky, sun shining bright. My lovely significant other comes and picks me up – sunflowers in hand. This girl isn’t a flower girl, unless it’s sunflowers. We go to yard sales, multiple ones, looking at someone else’s trash to become our treasure. Books, trinkets, board games, anything that strikes my fancy, we buy to try out later. Afterwards we go to lunch – nothing fancy because I’m a sucker for being cheap. Lunch is followed by roaming the city, window shopping. Literally anything that consists of me spending quality time with my other half is a special date to me. The day would end with a walk on the beach. Cheesy, I know. But have you walked on the beach after 10pm? When the stars are out, the sand is the deserted and the water looks like it’s ready to take you under? It’s enticing, to be honest. Just watching the empty water, wave after wave. That right there, is a special date.

A special date is also July 21st. Don’t ask me what happens on July 21st, I have no idea. It just sounds like a nice day.


Call me Jai [which rhymes with 'hi']! I'm currently a student at SUNY New Paltz, majoring in Communication Disorders and minoring in Deaf Studies. I'm a huge fan of horror movies, comic books, and Harry Potter. I've been writing since I was young, and I specialize in spoken word and short stories. I am originally from Brooklyn, but have lived in a variety of states over the years. I love music (anything in the alternative rock/pop punk/rap & hip-hop genre is my jam). I aspire to be either a Teacher of the Deaf or speech-language pathologist in a school, after I get that Master's, of course (and possibly my PhD). I also want to be an advocate for mental health in the Black community, speaking out for those who do not have a voice. Writing novels like Stephen King and J.K. Rowling in the future is just a side job :)
