Last night and until about 4pm I was plagued with a migraine. I don’t get them too frequent but when I do they are bitchin. My medication makes me sick to stomach–it’s such a lose/lose situation.
If the migraine wasn’t bad enough the weather in Madison is treacherous. It’s windy, chilly (35 degrees), and rainy/snowy/sleet. AKA It was miserable walking out the door today to go to class. But I did it cause I’m a good student 😉
I had plans to clean, do laundry & get a workout in tonight but after battling the migraine & the nasty weather I have very happily resorted to making a delicious dinner, blogging, and catching up on TV shows & my friends.
Dinner was a tilapia on a heated up flatbread with chipotle sauce and some muenster cheese (can you say delicious!) May not look appetizing but I can assure you it is happily sitting in my belly now!
While catching up on my life outside of school, Army, and working out I was able to have a wonderfully beautiful conversation tonight with my
best friend sister (she’s not actually my sister, but I consider her one). Jessie & I have been best friends since 2nd grade. She transferred from a different school and our teacher, Mrs. Ellis paired us together during a class activity. We instantly clicked and the rest is history.
Through countless memories over the past 13 years we have built a bond that no one will ever replace.
That being said as we have grown up we sadly have grown apart. This happens so often when people grow up: you go to different colleges, you meet new people, you live a hectic busy schedule, and you start dating people. That last one has gotten between Jessie & I a lot in the past year.
I set her up with a good guy friend of mine a little over a year ago. They hit it off so quickly and got serious fast. While I was super happy for her, I had a hard time swallowing my pride and telling her how happy I truly was for her. She is a beautiful, talented, caring, compassionate woman and everyone would be blessed to know her. But for some reason I couldn’t get over my sad single life and tell her how happy I was for her. Throughout the year we started talking less and less.
Tonight we finally laid everything out on the line and talked about the past year. I apologized for not being open about how happy I was for her. She apologized for the less frequent conversations and visits. We finally talked about how happy she is, and how happy I am for her. She is my sister after all!
While it may seem random it has a lot to deal with how happy I am. I finally had grasped singledom as I knew it and was okay with it. Then low & behold someone great walks into my life. There’s great potential with Z & Jessie told me just how happy she is to see me happy. I feel like a huge load has been taken off my shoulders and Jessie & I can finally move forward with our beautiful friendship.
Her & I could take on the world together. Nothing can or will ever come between us. She really is my other half. I love her.
Tell me: What’s your best friend like?
