One is silver and the others gold. A circles round, but never ends, that's how long I want to be your friend.
Sorry, is that in your head now, too? Was anyone else a girl scout?
I can't wait for April 23rd! A little reunion with these amazzzing ladies.. all of them.. Caitlin?? I can't even think of the last time we were all in one place at one time. My gosh, I'm so excited I could cry and also.. I miss college.
My friend, Mel, and I were talking for a good hour last night and we came to the conclusion that we desperately miss college, but not class. I mean, class was great.. we had to learrrrn, but everything outside of class was awesomeness. Having your friends all under 1 roof (or on one campus)? Amazing. Events (read: parties) every weekend? Amazing. Someone home to hang out with all the time? Amazing.
As I was writing this post (just a post about my excitement, really) I started thinking about the other girls in my life that make me happy. I thought about how when I graduated from high school I was devastated to leave my girlfriends from home. I thought I would never make new friends a plane flight away in college.
I missed my high school friends so much, but slowly I made new friends and by the time college came to a close I was heartbroken to leave my new (now old) friends. I was again terrified that I would be alone in the next chapter in my life.
Alone I was not. I met my dear friend Alexi on my first day of work when fate put our cubicles across from each other.
I really like the idea that we go through life constantly picking up friends along the way. It's a comforting thought. Lately, I've been meeting a lot of wonderful people through this blog, and it makes me so happy.
I used to sing that song in girl scouts because it was fun to sing (and the scout leaders made us sing it).. now it holds so much more meaning and I think it's quite a beautiful little jingle.
