It has been a strange/emotional/fun couple of days. I realize I place a lot of my own happiness on the actions of others...a lot.

So, just last week I felt like I had everything figured out and things were going well. Today I feel completely lost.

Adult friendships are a strange two headed monster. It's no longer like the days of elementary school where your best friend was your neighbor or the girl who sat next you. Activities consist of more than just going to school and playing after school. As an adult you actually have to work at maintaining friendships. I guess right now I am struggling with having different friend groups. And the intermingling of said friend groups. Or the desire for a close group of 10 friends...

Oh yeah, don't even get me started about work. That is a whole different can of worms that I just can't get into right now.

I am sure all of this has something to do with the fact that my life as I have known it for 2.5 years is getting ready to change with graduation.

Oh so despite all of this, I haven't really had any binge incidents with chocolate. I have eaten out, but I feel I have made wise choices and eaten in moderation. No gym yesterday, but I kicked a few times at kickball. That should count for something right? Plus, it was super hot at the M.I.A. show last night. I sure I sweated out a pound or 2. I am going to the gym during lunch today.

I have been struggling a lot with maintaining friendships, too. I do ok with my friend of 13 years because it seems like we'll always be friends no matter what - but of course, it still takes work to keep in touch. With everybody else is seems SO hard.

I really think this is part of why marriage exists and is something most of us desire to have - because then there is this one person who is in your life, by your side, as your best friend, every day. Yes it still takes work as all relationships do, but I think it's easier for us to focus all our energy on one important person.

You'll find that person - and I don't think it's your ex :/ BUT I don't think it hurts to make him a little jealous by wearing a super hot dress, either :)
