What I’ve been doing lately:
(here’s a hint…lots of girl hangs)
Kacie’s birthday celebration (with me) was Brews fest day! It truly is Christmas in July as is celebrating the birth of my very own earth angel. It was so hot outside, sweat dripping, and annoyance, but once we got inside, I forgot all about the heat and we danced and drank and ate hot wings, so ya know, totally successful.
I’ve been hanging out quite a bit with Jackie, my girl. I’m so happy to have a friend down the street from me, I’m so lucky to have her and know her and love her. Elyse came last night and we had girls night with Cruel Intentions and hibiscus vodka. We each took turns being sleepy. Bekah also left us this week! For 6 weeks! In Mexico! We all miss her, but knowing how happy she will be there makes it all okay. Elyse and I spent the morning sharing pastries, gossiping, and she did the crossword while I wrote a mini paper. I already miss Kacie and Elyse, so I’m hoping to see them this week for a girls dinner along with Jamie & Jackie hopefully.
I feel like I’m missing out most days. I make jokes that I’ve spent all summer indoors, but I have. I have spent many nights glued to a computer making lesson plans, reading so much, and typing typing. My friends all want to travel, make plans, and I feel so stuck. I just keep reminding myself that this time next year I will have a license and hopefully my own classroom. I’ll be able to make my girlfriends promises and finally travel greatly with my husband. I’ll be happier. I’ll be happy. Camilo and I want to go out of the country, to Seattle, to Atlanta, to even Asheville. Gimme weekends off! Gimme summers off! Gimme a fulfilling career! I’m being impatient.
But, you know, those days where I can a dinner alone with Camilo, get to watch a few episodes of Scandal (finally finished y’all!), and get to attend an all day BEERFEST, I’m grateful for those. If you ever get a glimpse of me looking totally enamored with a moment, it’s because I cherish every single one.
