Just let me get this out of my system while I still feel something okay? LOL
The past two weeks have been nothing but hectic: work during the usual hours, work thrown at me at the spur of the moment, sending out crazy long email updates, working on work scheduling to make sure I can attend my classes this semester, and just a bunch of every day bullshit that you and I go through. Sometimes I wish I had more than one body so that I can have a PA, but let’s be real, is the world even ready for two Frucs?? Haha
In any case, with all the seemingly bad comes the good; I celebrated a close friend’s birthday (and got to see beautiful faces I haven’t seen in a quick minute), I caught up with another really close friend before he went back home and I went hiking today with another set of close friends. I guess the recurring theme here is close friends and how important they truly are.
Now…knowing what I lived through, I never really had a group of people that I can hit up, catch up, talk shit and talk about life stuff with, etc etc and I was always used to having conversations in my head. I mean I’m a creature of habit, so I still have my tendencies to live inside my head, but it’s just so nice to unwind, talk and laugh every now and then. I was never one for sap…I mean what the fuck am I? A tree? But I’ve come to realize the value of the close friendships I’ve made (and those that have yet to be made) and I can’t emphasize enough how thankful I am for this group of people. I used to think Davis was just a place where I do my school shit, graduate and move on with life just like every other place I’ve lived in, but I didn’t take into account how much more fun and exciting the ride was when you have close friends. The best part is, these friendships I’m constantly working on, albeit rather slowly, are friendships that, I hope, will stay consistent for the next 5, 10, 25 years. Oakley might be boring as fuck and I may not have friends, if any, to kick it with here, but rest assured that technology will always play its part in bringing people together somehow.
I’ll admit…23 has been nothing but blessings in different forms, and I hope that they keep coming because honestly, all these blessings are nothing short of amazing and they just put everything into perspective. Here’s to taking baby steps towards my dream career and to insane friends who remind me that I’m not crazy….I’m just a little unwell HAHAHA.
