Slept in cause school is overrated! (Just kidding I was just super tired) I stayed up too late watching the Half the Sky documentary and thinking about how much I want to empower women.
Heard back from the interview and didn’t get the job, but I did receive and email back from the organization I want to volunteer with and I can start training in January. That’s way better than a job anyways!
Spent some time with the best friend. She was driving over to surprise her girlfriend with some romantic presents and I tagged along. We spent 2 hours simply driving through traffic and had lots of time to talk.
Watching her go the extra mile just to make her girlfriend happy made me wish someone would do that for me, and made me think about waiting for someone who will actually do that kind of stuff. I deserve someone who will go out of their way to put me first, I think we all deserve someone who will do that.
I also enjoyed hearing all about everything she’s thinking about. She’s gone through hell, and continues to struggle and fight every day of her life, but she does it with immense courage. She works hard at her recovery, at her sobriety, at her health, her happiness, and making life comfortable for those around her. And she reaches out to others who are also along a similar journey to offer them advice and support. We have both been on a path to recovery together this past year and I am so goddamn proud of how far we have both come.
Now I am home: Writing emails, redoing my art website, confirming tomorrow’s plans, and writing this blog post. Two-hundred and sixty days. I feel like a different person. I feel good.
