day 24.

The past few days have been a rollercoaster of emotions, as far as a few things go. Nothing really serious at all, but there have been a lot of highs and lows. And the situation finally came to a head last night, and today was a day of just figuring out next steps and the immediate future. No decisions have really been made yet, but…just know that change is a’comin’.

Overall, though, I’d say it’s a good thing. Mostly because every time there’s a lot of drama in my life, I wind up spending time with some of my favorite people in the world: my work friends. I’d say by far the best things to come out of the job I have now are the people I have come to know and call my good friends. Some of them have come and gone, but we’ve stayed in touch, and tonight was the first time we could all actually get together and just spend a few hours together.

I didn’t manage to get any pictures – I don’t know why, I don’t really have any pictures of us together. Well, that’s not true – here’s a picture of most of us. Mix it up a little bit and you have the greatest people you will ever meet.

This is a picture of us from Courtney’s wedding in July. Of course she had a photobooth with mustaches. This is pretty much the quintessential description of all of us. Of course I picked a red mustache. It must have been foreshadowing.

The lady I miss the most is Carly, the girl with the green mustache. We really only worked together this summer, but we just clicked, and I really miss getting to see her all of the time. She lives in Stillwater teaching and grad schooling, and I really wish I got to see her more.

Anyway, it was a really fun night, and we all resolved to see each other more. I love getting to see friends I can’t see very often, just because of time and distance and busy schedules. It just always feels so enriching and refreshing.
