#natty takes a quiz
For the song lyric for drabble thing: Bean/Jason - "Got me feelin' like it's real for sure. This is gettin' kinda out of my head."
got me feeling like it’s real for sure. this is getting kinda out of my head
It starts like this: she’s his math tutor.
Jason Alvarado is absolute shit at math. Bean has spent the last two weeks trying to explain what a unit circle is to him, and he is no closer to understanding it than he was at the start. And maybe she should take that as some sort of personal failure, but--
And that’s not meant to sound rude. Really. Here’s what she means:
She’s spent two weeks hanging out with this guy, three weeks trying to teach him what exactly Trig is so he can get his grade up from a low D to a low C (or maybe even a low B? God, that’d be a miracle) and continue to play football. three weeks. And they’ll sit with knees brushing in the library until he gets too antsy to stay, and then they’ll walk over to her house, and he’ll play catch with her brothers while she tries to quiz him on trig identities until he starts to laugh and forces her to join in. And it’s that look on his face when she can throw a perfect spiral-- the shock and surprise and the laugh he spits out when the ball flies right into his arms.
What she means is that she’s having fun with him.
She likes it when he texts her math memes, even when he doesn’t get them, just because she’d laughed at one once, and he’d noticed. She likes it when he brings her those chocolate chip cookies his mom makes, hands her a tupperware full of them with this half shrug like we had extra, and how he watches for her reaction like it’s something he waits for. She likes the idea of them being almost friends-- more than just acquaintances, less than real friends. It’s sort of comforting. Weirdly, a lot about Jason is sort of comforting.
So she goes to the Homecoming game even though she hasn’t been to a single game since her brother graduated last year, and she sits up in the stands, and she cheers so fucking loud when he scores the game winning touchdown. And he’d invited her to his post-Homecoming party last week with some sort of earnestness that felt so incredibly genuine, and she hadn’t planned on going but now…
She bumps into him in the kitchen, the music leaving everything around her feeling a bit like it’s shaking. He’s holding a bowl of chips and a Natty Light, and it makes her roll her eyes how stereotypical it is. He grins at her.
“You made it.”
“Yeah. Congrats on that touchdown, by the way. It was a really good catch.”
He shrugs. “Mostly Luke. I was just in the right place.”
“Well you were still there,” she says. “That has to count for something.”
He shrugs again, his gaze shifting over slightly, just past her, out towards the deck, a frown edging it’s way onto his features.
“You okay?” she asks, taking a half step closer to him. His grip on the beer is leaving his knuckles white, and she almost wants to take it from him before it bursts open.
“Yeah it’s just…” he pauses, exhales slowly. She wonders if he trusts her. She wonders if she trusts him. God, she’s only really known him for three weeks. “Erika is here with some guy.”
“Oh.” Erika, his ex girlfriend. Bean thinks she remembers her glaring over as she sat shotgun in his Jeep. Bean couldn’t figure out why then. She can’t now either.
She takes a deep breath, feels a little bold as she blinks up at him. “This is gonna sound stupid, but how do you feel about fake dating?”
send me a song lyric and a pairing and i’ll write you a drabble

If I could go back
two years and talk to the girl that just graduated, who was sitting at her mom’s kitchen table thinking about what was going to be next I would tell her:
I wish I could tell you that those were the best four years of your life, but they’re not. They’re just different but in the best possible form of the word.. There’s responsibility but it’s not the same ones you’ll have to come. You wake up and you go to class, you sit with your friends as you scarf down a dining hall omelet, you remember you have a pop quiz and the boy you like isn't texting you back, your friends tell you about how they failed their bio test and they need to get a job. You all don’t know that you’re on your paths, you’ll be just fine. You take shots of straight vodka at night, barely flinching, wake up the next day chug Gatorade and take an Advil, do it all over again day after day. It sounds like fun but it’s not sustainable, you learn to live off of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, you make a lot of temporary friends. After you graduate you realize the ones that you’ll want to keep for the rest of your life and which ones you’ll silently root for from the comfort of double tapping their Instagram posts. Graduating is really fucking stressful, in fact, it sucks. You’re going to panic about getting a job. You’ll probably get a job that you’re not passionate about. You might even panic about doing something you’re not passionate about for the rest of your life. Don’t worry, you're going to work a ton of jobs, and then maybe you’ll find something. You’re not going to be passionate about it probably, but it’s something it pays the bills. That’s okay, but never stop dreaming of your passions. Keep learning; this is not the end of wanting to know everything. There’s a whole world to learn. The world is yours to travel, even if it’s just to a new town nearby, keep exploring. There’s so much at your fingertips if you look around. Read anything you can get your hands on, eat the weird piece of sushi that you might not like, sign up for that half marathon that you keep telling yourself you’re going to do one day. Make a list of the things you want to improve about yourself and actually work on them. Keep your passion alive for things you enjoy: keep making friends and complimenting strangers on the streets. Have conversations in coffee shops, don’t let go of the little bit of light that was alive inside of you in college. People around you are going to change, some of your friends are going to isolate themselves inside of work or relationships, maybe you find yourself doing that too. But never forget the people that pushed you through school; the ones who ended their tequila-filled nights crying with you about graduating over slices of buffalo chicken pizza. Don’t forget to sing on the top of your lungs and that a quick dance session to something ridiculous can fix almost anything. Never forget how uncomfortable you were when you started but how satisfying it was when you stood up and shook your Dean's hand at graduation. There’s going to be a ton of moments that make you uncomfortable but they’re so so worth it. I want you to know that some days are good, and some days are terrible: looking back you’ll never remember the days the sky opened up on your way to class but you’ll never forget the laughs with your friends sitting on your porch drinking a lukewarm Natty Light. You’ll never remember a crappy day of work but you’re going to remember the days you make the most out of, even if it's sitting on a porch with a slightly more expensive glass of wine in a green solo cup. Life doesn’t end here so stop thinking it does.
It’s only just begun.
