I hate to bring out the “time flies when you’re having fun” adage, but I’m honestly in shock that June is almost over. Just…wow.
But guys, it has been such a fun month. And not in a “lots of big events” kind of way, but just in a “consistently surrounded by friends and happiness” kind of way. Which, of course, is the absolute best kind.
Since going to college, summer has always meant separation. Everyone goes off to home or summer employment, and some move away post-graduation. It’s been a standard theme for about five years now. So imagine my glee to finally have a summer filled with an abundance of my favorite people. Even if I’ve only gotten to visit with some for a short time, it’s still so wonderful to catch up face-to-face.
Everything right now just feels good. Not perfect by any means, but definitely good. I’m settling into my new apartment, I’ve got a fantastic group of friends around me, and I actually feel like I have some semblance of a plan for the next year-ish of my life (I mean, it’s not a really detailed plan, but any kind of plan at all is huge for me, let’s be honest). I’ve got a lot I still want to do and accomplish, obviously, but right now I feel really content. And that’s a beautiful feeling right now, to have this joy in such a weird period of life. It’s just…really, really nice.
I thought I was going to end up on some long ramble about friendship and joy, but I think I’ve already gotten it all out. Summer’s been great, and I’m happy. There ya go.
Happy summer, everyone.
