- Joined a gym.
- Tried Skinny Girl vodka. (The cucumber is really quite good.)
- Found out I made the Dean’s List for my last semester of school.
- Got my alumni email address.
It’s been a weird day.
- Starting filling out an application to Starbucks when
- I got asked to interview for a job I really want and
- downloaded Sherlock series two and
- watched True Grit for the first time (loved it).
I’d say today was a successful day.
As much as the idea of leaving NYC and the people I’ve come to call my friends pains me, it is nice knowing that I could potentially live with my brother in Philadelphia with my cats and go to school and work and get my doctorate and be that close to my family. When I was younger and applying to undergraduate schools I refused to go to school in Philadelphia. I applied to Temple as my safety and got in, but I didn’t want to go. Now I feel like I’m practically throwing myself at Temple to accept me into their clinical psych graduate program. I would never take back moving away from PA for anything, though. Being able to grow and become an independent person apart from my friends and family has been an amazing experience, but I think I am ready for the next page and I think I’m okay with that page being in Philadelphia.
When did we get so old?
This dude is getting married next week. This dude saved me so many times between the ages of 15-20. I would never be here without him, I would never have become the woman I am today without him. I’m so glad to be a part of his incredibly special day.
My girls are growing up so fast.
C is moving in with her boyfriend in Pittsburgh, far away from me. She’s going to get a job that impresses all of us (I just know it) and is doing what makes her happy and that makes ME so happy.
A has a job, works out at a gym (this is of note if you are us) and is getting her shit together. I couldn’t be more proud of her.
K is working, realizing what makes her happiest and isn’t taking shit from anyone. She’s become so strong, I’m so glad to see her becoming such a stand-out woman.
L lives on a farm with her two horses, her two pups, her man and flies around the country for her kick-ass job. She’s grown up so much in the past year, dealt with shit we never knew would come her way and has blossomed into this amazingly incredible creature (and she was already incredible) that I’m blessed to call my best friend.
Fuck, where has time gone? My friends are creating these lives for themselves (all graduated college in May, they were a year above me in high school) and I feel like sometimes I’m floundering. But I know I just need a little more time. I’m so so lucky to have such an amazing core group of ladies that I can call my best friends, my sisters and my supports. I’d be a hot mess without them. I love you all <3
