Better late than never lovelies – have a beautiful weekend and thank you for such a wonderful week! Even you, man on train who made me smell like gin! xoxo
Sometimes, there is that perfect somebody who is your saving grace, and this week it was Miss Elle. I sometimes forget how nice it is to just meet for coffee, to sit, to chat. I spent so much time in school, on projects, writing, reading – that I lost touch with so many people. It is wonderful to have somebody say, “No really. Let’s meet” – and then show up. It doesn’t hurt that Miss Elle is one of the smartest, coolest gals I know and I am perpetually envious of the fact that she always matches, and she has the coolest job. I am so thankful I get to be her pal.
These past two weeks have been kind of up and down for me academically – a lot of stress, a little bit of fun, some major stress presenting that paper. I’ve been contemplating some career decisions (and thinking that right now, being a dental hygenist might be ok) and having a major heart to heart with my brain. I’m so thankful for finding incredible support in two proffs, who, while perfectly comfortable talking about theories of ethics, theories of decision making, theories of right and justice, displayed their true colors when they let me (both) sob in their offices and gave me totally unequivocable support in fantastic ways.
Even though my weekends are hectic, usually more than the weeks, the last couple have turned out to be.. stunning. I’ve managed on more than one account to get to the thrift shop with J. and pick up oodles of beautiful old books and such, sit and listen to music while we eat breakfast.. all of those beautiful, sunny things that weekends are supposed to be. I’m so thankful for the moments that remind me just how lucky I am. (gag, I know)
To the incredibly kind, and very observant young man at the bus stop – thank you. I did need that cigarette. For all you observant people out there who have taken the time this week to say ‘stay for a chat’, ‘have another coffee’ and ‘would you like a cigarette?’ – Thank you, I will, I will, and would.
Let us do a very quiet high five.. because guys.. *whispers* I think spring is almost here…
