So, I slacked again on updating daily because I had an awesome weekend. It’s another combo post. Enjoy!
Day 11: Friends
This has been one of the toughest weeks I’ve had in quite a while on the work front. I came home everyday feeling like a zombie, and although I love zombies, feeling devoid of anything for five days straight kinda blows. Thankfully, I have awesome friends.
My friends here in AZ helped me surprise my bestie for her 30th. It was a good time. We had good food at one of our favorite places downtown, lots of laughs and got to see a few people we hadn’t seen in a long time. It was a really good night with the girls and a great way to wrap up the week.
At the end of my besties surprise birthday night, my friends from home sent me a text that I will love forever. It centers around talking like a pirate and gas. It’s hard to explain the hilarity of it, but for now on, I will have a really hard time keeping a straight face when Liam Nielsen yells “Release the Kraken” in Clash of the Titans.
I love my friends. Everyday I am thankful for all of them. They are the funniest, supportive and most loving people I could ever ask for in my life. Seriously I would be lost without them.
Day 12: Alone Time
Some of the best days are the ones that I spend time alone. I slept in til 11, watched my favorite Doctor Who episode Blink, hung out at my bootleg San Diego and stumbled upon the Tempe Arts Festival.
As I wandered around Mill Avenue checking out all the art booths, I found a cute little alcove and was drawn in to a restaurant by the sensuous smell of baking brownies. I’d found a real treat… Desert Roots Kitchen, a vegan bakery/ restaurant.The food was amazing, and the brownie I had was so good, it was really hard to believe it was made without eggs or dairy.
It was one of my best days in a long time, and I spent it completely alone. I am ever so grateful for chances to spend the day wandering alone.
Day 13: Facebook
Although it has limited the amount of time we actually spend with people face to face, Facebook does have it’s perks. It’s allowed me to keep in touch with friends all over the US and have hilarious conversations via chat. It doesn’t replace actually being with my friends at home (which I miss on a daily basis) or a phone call, but it works as a substitute. So thank you Mark Zuckerberg for creating the semi necessary evil that is Facebook.
