With Ryan gone and moved away to Edmonton, I've found myself at a bit of a loss when it comes to occupying my time. With 2 weeks to go until I'm forced to return to the life of an employed person, I've got plenty of it to spare.
I've found myself taking up residence at the gym, struggling to cram in as much physical activity as possible before returning to ground school and likely succumbing to the temptations of the on-campus Starbucks. Tonight, as a break in the routine, I decided to do something different... I went for dinner... with friends.
I know what you are all thinking. Friends?! Since when?
Admittedly, I've been rather antisocial since my return from Dubai. It's so easy to get caught up in spending all of your time with your significant other. With a 4 week long road trip added to the mix, I just haven't had much time to catch up with my friends.
So tonight I ventured to my favourite sushi restaurant with my friends Rosie, Talin, and Berly. We reunited over delicious food and despite the long lapse since we'd all seen one another, we still managed to go on as though no time had passed. That's the great thing about good friends.
I might not see them often, but I really do have some of the best friends in the world. Even better, I have friends all over the world. I've met some amazing people in my travels that I'll keep in touch with for years to come. I'm hoping to even have a few special people from Dubai travel all the way to Mexico to attend my wedding. I've got friends at home who still love me even though my dreams have sent me to the other side of the world... twice. They love me for my nerdy, crazy, sometimes obnoxious self. And guess what? I love them too!
They've shared in some of the biggest moments of my life, and I can't wait for them to all be there when I marry my very best friend!
That's about enough sappiness for this evening, but I just want the people in my life to know just how much they mean to me.
