3 Things From The Past Week // 08

Sunday, October 1, 2017

It is October first and I'm spending my morning out on my balcony with a blanket and a cup of s'mores coffee, so, I AM HAPPY.

1 | Two people told me that they feel like we are really close friends because of my Instagram stories. They watch them and feel like they're involved in my life. That feels cool. That's pretty much why I post insta-stories so much – to connect to other people so we can all feel like we're best friends even if we're not.

It was cool that they told me too, because now I know at least two people like 'em, you know?

2 | I also ran into an old friend who I haven't spoken to in nearly three years now. We talked briefly, but the conversation was stilted and we knew it. I wanted to talk to her more, to hear how she's been doing, but I didn't know how.

It's weird how a friendship can be over for three years and you don't realize you miss them until you randomly run into them again.

3 | Living with someone and still feeling like you've barely spent any time with them lately is a weird thing. Both my boyfriend and I have been pretty busy the past two weeks or so. There were a few nights where I was going to bed and he still wasn't home yet. Even on our anniversary on Tuesday, we went out to dinner, but when we got home, he had more work to do.

When that happens, you have to make it a point to dedicate some time to each other the next time you can, and that's what we did. Wednesday and Thursday our only plans were taking a walk around the lake, and watching Netflix together. Today we're going to find another forest preserve or park area to explore.

We've been together for seven years now. Over a quarter of my life! It's crazy to think about, in a good way.
