Best surprise, BWI has a Jamba Juice now! (at Baltimore / Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI))
I’ve spent a lot of time (too much time) thinking about all the bad things and things I’m unhappy with lately. But today (I’ll credit the nice weather making me happy) I realized things are pretty great.
I’ve lost some people in my life that I considered to be good friends recently and within the last few years. It upsets me a lot because I didn’t do anything wrong, at least if I did it would make more sense.
But today I realized my life is great. Not having those people in my life is for the best and I have all the people I need. Recently my friends have been great in making me feel better, because of the pity party I’ve been having for the last month. Most of them probably don’t even realize it.
I’m not going to live in Maryland my whole life. By that I mean more than 2 more years but since I’ve gotten over myself and realized how good my life is right now, its been making me unsure. Also, the amount of professional sporting events I’ve been to in the last 3 weeks is making me kind of question my move to Austin (not really though).
Things are on the up and I’m (mostly) done with feeling sorry for myself. Things are great but I realized today that if my best friend and I ever lived in the same state again, my life would be the best. I’ve known her since 3rd grade but we weren’t close friends until freshman year of high school. Being in a class together and both being awkwardly shy brought us together. After we graduated, she stayed in CA for college, I followed my dream of going to school on the east coast (MA then MD). Since 2006, we have never lived in the same state. Our set up now is the closest thing (2.5 hours away). Despite the years apart, the distractions, the boys and everything else that would normally end a friendship like this, we are probably closer than ever. She is basically my 3rd sister and if we could ever live in the same state, I would never need anything else from life, except a Scottish boyf… she can’t fulfill that.
I don’t normally post things like this but it’s made me feel much better. Those friends that I’ve lost mean nothing. I am an awesome friend and I have even better people in my life. It sucks for them, I’m better off without them and it’s just fewer people I will need to say goodbye to when I move.
Sappy/emotion post is done.
