A tangible expression of the mess that is my mind.
I have had so many consecutively warm fuzzy fun conversations this week. From O, to B, to work, to C and G (who knew I would ever crave Australian accents?? bizarro). So ergo I just feel like eeeing over them for a sec.
O: it’s so refreshing to spend time with a guy with so much depth and reflectiveness. It sounds superficial but in some ways I am also so glad to have him around because he has seen me change and grow over the last 8 or so years, and I him, and it’s awesome having someone endorse the person I have become. Who knew that the slightly dorky guy I had a mega crush on at 13 would become such a strong and steady friend (after 3 years of avoidance) .
B: I just love that we do like 3 mins of small talk and then it’s right into “so, I watched this documentary/did you read that article/massssive DMCS”. I feel like I haven’t really found that balance before with someone (except maybe M), of intellectual discussion, complete silliness and reflection. I am so happy to have found someone with the same passions and drive as me.
Work: When is the ball going to drop regarding this one? I feel far too happy and satisfied for my own good. My boss is AMAZING, young, completely mad but in the best possible way, and so passionate. And J is the perfect mix of sarcastic (but not in that pretentious way) and sweet, makes for a great coworker. Proves to me I shouldn’t judge a book, because I totally thought he was gonna be ultra tc. It seems bizarre to me that I’ve only been in for 4 days (if you add my parttime hours up) and I already feel completely at home with them. When has that happened before?? I love my work, but also love the fact that we spend the breaks reenacting youtube videos and giggling about tpain.
C and G: God, I miss these girls. I miss being overseas with them, and I miss that we balance eachother so completely. Two without the third would not work, we’re all so different but fit so well. They have this snapshot of who I am from Contiki, and then the weekend in Sydney, and yet I feel like they know me better than a lot of people here. There is something very empowering about getting new perspectives about yourself, and they always provide. I can’t wait to skype them next week.
I know that relationships are transient, but I am glad that I have such good ones in this part of my life.
