A short break from my journalism assignments, I wanted to take the time to post some shots and thoughts reflecting on a lovely evening with lovely people I had this week.
I am testing the waters of adulthood and independence, working, taking classes, and living in an apartment with some of my best friends. It’s strange not seeing my family every day, but I am definitely loving being on my own. I can’t even describe what it is like to finally have my own kitchen again, for my love affair with food is strong, and we have already gone through about a carton and a half of eggs in a week but who is surprised?
This summer is the summer of us, which means living in full force and making the most of every experience accessible to us. I am focusing on health, my future career, and spending intentional time with the people I care about. This is something I have been thinking a lot about, being intentional. I feel like so often our time is spent with the people we love in a half hearted way, and our heads are often in other spaces. I have made it a goal of mine to only focus on the person in front of me when I am with them.
I spent some intentional time yesterday with this awesome group of women, just eating and talking and being both amused and disgusted by the amount of bugs that wanted to take a bite out of our pasta salad and chocolate almonds. Sometimes all it takes is a little fresh air and good food to make a good memory.
As May comes to a close, I am excited to see what the coming months hold for my friends and I, and am increasingly thankful I have these people in my life.
