Today, I woke up with this amazingly happy and content feeling and I can’t really explain it. I think it’s about the fact that finally, things are starting to go really well for me.
My best friend Jaime came to visit this weekend. Even though I only got to see her for a night and a day, it just reminded me how much I miss having my best friend around. I mean, I love D and I am so happy he’s here with me, but I miss having a girl around to get into trouble with. The whole thing just reminded me of all of the mischief the two of us used to get in together in high school. We didn’t see that much of each other through college (what with going to schools about 5 hours away from each other), but her visit this weekend reminded me that we really are going to be lifelong friends (we’ve known each other since pre-school, can you believe that?!). Also, she reminds me that no matter how messed up your family and life situation can be, you can still push through and prosper.
In two days, I start work with K. The two of us went to college together and in our last year, we got really close because we worked on so many projects together. I think she’s absolutely amazing and so talented and it’s been really hard to see her cooped up in the middle of nowhere while she looks for a job. So here’s what happened: it wasn’t working out with my current copywriting partner, so my boss asked if I had any recommendations for other people I’d like to work with. I immediately suggested K because 1. She’s awesome. 2. She’s talented. 3. She would be perfect for the clients. 4. Do I need to go on? So they interviewed her and she’s moving out here tomorrow to start work the day after that! It’s going to be so much fun to have her for work and for a friend. I hope that she can help to fill the hole that Jaime left.
Also, my parents are going to be moving to Los Angeles soon. This is something they’ve been toying with since November, but the contracts are finally signed and my dad gave his two weeks notice at his old job. The reason they’re moving is because he was offered his dream job at a hospital that just happens to be 10 miles from where I live. When I first heard about it, I was upset because I thought they were moving out to be with me, and I didn’t want them to think I was a baby or anything. But after talking with them and seeing how happy my dad was about this new job, I knew it would be okay. Plus it’ll be nice to have them nearby… Sammi too! I miss that kitty.
It also helps that the weather is beautiful out today, I have an awesome boyfriend (who makes the best coffee, and I’m going to go see The Five Year Engagement and go shopping today :)
