I am turning 24 on Tuesday. 24. Woah. When did that happen. I swear I just turned 20 like a week ago. Last year was the first time where I didn't have a great birthday. That was mostly my own doing, but it also wasn't the happiest time in my life. This year I'm trying to be more pro-active. Celebrate me! I'm having a cinco de mayo/silver and gold birthday party with my roommate (its my golden birthday and her silver anniversary of being alive) But pulling all of this together makes me realize what I don't have.
I don't have my dream job yet. In fact I'm incredibly bored with my job/career, but for some reason I still haven't gotten that kick in the ass to go do something about it.
I don't really have a lot of friends here. I have friends. Don't get me wrong. But so many of them are work friends, or friends of convenience. They are the kind of people you pour your heart out to over a glass of wine, or call 27 times a day, or gchat with non stop.
I still struggling with a broken heart, two years later.
I've been in DC for over two years now, and I know less about what I want to do with my life than when I moved here as a college senior.
But why am I wasting time worrying about all that. I have so many great things in my life, yet I continue to focus on what I don't have.
I do have some wonderful crazy friends.
|BW. Roommate. Best Friend since the sixth grade. She knows everything about me.|
|LoPro aka Lawfully Wedded Wife. Bestie since the seventh grade.|
|Kat. Part Soulmate part therapist. College Bestie. I talk to her every single day. She's brilliant, tough and not afraid to tell it like it is. She balances me in every way. I love her to death.|
|KJ. Roommie. We've been friends for EVER. 5th grade maybe? Became BFF in high school. and reconnected when we both moved to DC two years ago.|
|CC. DC bestie. She recently moved to New Zealand. She has no idea how much I miss her.|
