Moving on from all the election news (because frankly, I’m getting tired of it, but I still have something to say, but that’s for another entry)…let me take this moment to honor a friend.
So we met almost two years ago, but I didn’t really get to talk to her until we realized you sat near my workstation. Our first real project together was Valentine’s 2008, where we both lost sleep over collecting money, and time to work because we had to organize a lot of other things for that event. That was the start of our friendship, which extended from club to work to everything else in between. We were together almost everyday even if our shifts were different, and you were always there to reply and comfort and give me back rubs whenever I was having a breakdown (which, I realized, was actually often).
We traveled to places together, planned trips, went shopping for swimsuits and urban clothing, confessed, heard mass, prayed, read books and had a lot more in our lists. We dreamed of families, of ideal guys and being great friends regardless of relationship status. We lived far away from each other, and even if you resigned,we never let that let that stop our friendship from growing.
You know I’m going to miss you, right?
Here’s to your trip, to your job hunt, and your dreams. It’s not going to be the same without you being one text, one call away (well, you have roaming, but you get what I mean), but our friendship doesn’t have to change even if we’re not in the same country. I’m going to be here to support you in whatever makes you happy or successful (preferably, both), and like what Gel said, who said we can’t visit you there? :)
Here’s to you, girl friend. Have a safe trip, Cors! I’ll see you in Facebook, Twitter and the occasional text. :)
