I had to say goodbye to two people today.
And I've only just met them.

It's weird saying goodbye knowing it's a true farewell. But I'm just not ready, yet.

People fade in and out of my life all the time. Some connections just wither as time passes.
But it's strange to meet people that could have been really great friends... if only for better timing.

I guess it doesn't make meeting them any less meaningful. It makes me sad, and in some ways I feel a little cheated. But this is life, I guess. And from here on out these types of quick-fading connections will occur frequently.

Goodbye, almost friends. I'll miss what we could have had.

Week 30

The weeks are getting longer.
My blogging is getting shorter.

It's Thursday again.

Keeping up on blogging is difficult because I really want to keep the pattern of posting on Thursdays but I always forget about it until Thursday evening when I'm too exhausted to think.

Gina and I had dinner tonight and got to talk one-on-one which is always great.
Also Kaitlyn called me tonight and we were able to mindlessly chat while she drove to New Orleans.

I think through both of those conversations I was able to establish this:
I'm not confused. Everyone else just doesn't want to face the facts.

I know that doesn't make sense to anyone but me, but I'm the only one who reads this anyway.

I think about this a lot

Lindsay's café crush is "Latté Guy", as we call him, (also known as "The Guy Who Hates Cream Cheese") and one time upon receiving is his latté he said, "Oh, it's a fish today!" in reference to the latté art (which was obviously accidental because none of us know how to do latté art) and I think that was a super endearing moment.

Okay okay okay...

This week hasn't been hectic but for some reason I've been falling behind in things.

I think I'm just going to give a quick little update instead of trying to be creative since I'm already rushed on this.

I finally got my phone back from that crazy lady in Des Moines. I didn't meant to get the police involved, but I ended up picking it up from the PD in Carlisle, which worked out well so I guess whatever.

On Tuesday (to replace our Wednesday shenanigans on account of everyone leaving for the 4th) we went to the boys' volleyball game and hung out at BK's afterward drinking beer, eating pizza, and watching Archer. It was a very "college" evening and I loved it.

This upcoming weekend I was supposed to only work on the 4th, which was a little disappointing since I'm going to be stuck in Ames anyway... I'd rather be working most of the time. Megan ended up being okay with me taking her Friday and Sunday shifts, so hopefully that'll be good money.

Other than that, life is still going great.

I interviewed with BAM on Thursday. It was a group interview which was weird, and I don't think I was particularly impressive. I also am not entirely sure I want the job anymore. I mean let's be real: I'd love to work at a book store. But I'm not sure juggling everything will be easy, and they probably don't want to work with my sporadic schedule right now anyhow.

Time will tell! Until next week...
