>Focusing On The Goodness

>I feel like I’m always growing up. I’m learning that people think I’m confident and I am, but I also don’t know a lot and need a lot of support and love. Aimee’s been really amazing lately about all the weird things that have been happening in my life. She’s been under a ton of pressure and stress and she’s still completely able to come through for me. Her post from yesterday was so beautiful.
She came to my work yesterday afternoon and we had lunch together. She walked me to my date and even though I made her promise to not blab on to the boy for a million hours, she couldn’t help herself. It was really cute to watch her tell him all her swimming anecdotes that I am now quite familiar with.
I read the most amazing graphic novel yesterday. It’s my second favorite ever. This one is by Miss Lasko-Gross, a woman I had never heard of, and told the story of a girl, growing up Jewish, rebellious, artsy, and out of place in a beautiful, funny, and honest way. The book is called Escape From Special.
It’s been so warm and these past couple of days. I wore my new dress– that Alyssa found and helped me pick out– to celebrate the weather and all the good that’s been happening in my life.
Tonight I’m going to hang out with Alyssa and her sister, Hannah, who I’ve already met and adore. When it comes to anyone related to Alyssa, what’s not to love?
Tomorrow my very own sister will be coming to visit from Boston. This weekend promises to be action-packed and full goodness.
Reading Age of Grief by Jane Smiley. So far her characters feel very honest.
