How’s everyone’s work out wednesday going?! This week has been jammed back with back to back activities, it’s a little stressful fitting them all into one last week of being home, but I’m making it all happen! Monday a few friends of mine went hiking to Hacklebarney State Park along the trails. (See! I’m sticking with the spontaneous lifestyle!) Some of the guys decided to bring their fishing poles and attempt to catch a few fish. Of the 3 hours we were there, only two were caught haha. I gave it a try and didn’t get any luck. Hiking is such a fun and social way to get your daily exercise, especially on trails with lots of elevation changes. After hiking I headed over to work at Rita’s with my two favorite girls Haleigh and Bianca. No matter how busy or how slow the work day is going, I know I can always count in having an incredible time with them.
Yesterday’s events including catching up with my best friend from high school Rachel. Although we had been distant for the past year or so, it’s so nice to be back and act as if nothing ever changed. Friendship is definitely of the most important intangible items in the world that everyone should find. It doesn’t matter how many friends you have, all that matters is that you have that one person you can be 100% yourself with. Luckily I found Rachel at age 14 during the awkward years of freshman and sophomore of high school. You know those friends that have the exact sense of humor as you? That’s the friends you want to find. And trust me, I have such a sarcastic sense of humor, so it can come off as a bit brusque, and luckily Rachel completely gets it.
My plans for today was going to consist of just a quick evening coffee with an old family friend, but I received a (spontaneous) text from my friend Chris to grab some lunch, so we decided to catch up over some Chipotle I love Chipotle—easily of the healthiest ‘fast food’ options in my area of New Jersey. Although it is a tad pricey, it’s worth the treat every now and then. So much change has been happening with myself lately, and I love it. Rachel even said she noticed it lately. She said I have a glow to myself since the last time she has seen me. She said I look healthier, have more pep to my voice, and my eyes actually sparkle when I talk. I feel so much better, too. I don’t know what it is, but this summer was such an eye opener to me. I’m becoming friends with people I never expected to enjoy time with, striking up conversations with random people, and even going on unplanned adventures (which, to me, is completely impossible….well…so I thought!)
