How are you?
Ran a wonderful, music-less 4 miler
Went to lunch with my family for an early Mother’s Day celebration
Took my 116 question biology final
Went to a gelato festival
And now I’m writing this and gearing up for a nap!
I have one more final on Tuesday morning, but then I’m freeeeee!
I’d really like to play tennis right now for whatever reason… But I’m pretty pooped AND I don’t have a tennis partner!
Speaking of partners, I’d like to talk about my duet partner. My best friend for my whole entire life. My sister. My other half. My soulmate. Eileen!
I’m not quite sure if she reads my blog, but if she does then hey bb!
Today she had her last dance recital at the studio since she’s a senior this year! I didn’t get to to go because of my dumb final and to be 100% honest! I cried when I found out I wouldn’t be able to go. Nonetheless, even without seeing it with my own eyes, I know she brought everything she had to the table. Because that’s what she does. Not only in dance, but with her whole life.
Eileen will wax poetic about how I’ve changed her life, but the thing is… She does not realize how much she’s changed mine! She’s my guidance counselor, my therapist, my mom, and my sister. She knows me better than anyone else in this world and I can guarantee that.
She’s beautiful inside and out and has a heart of absolute pure gold. Not to mention, she’s tough as nails. Life has knocked her down more than enough times, yet she still stands up. Stronger and stronger every time.
She’s my role model. Truly.
I had the pleasure of dancing with her for nearly 14 years. Being her duet partner as well! I would do anything to get to do that again. Even when we argued about choreography or about whether or not to go to Sonic for kids meals, we were always in sync. And we still are.
And that’s how I know our friendship isn’t like others. We don’t feel the need for shallow acts of “friendship”, because we know it’s there. No need to prove it to others. Not only that, but no matter how long we go without seeing each other, talking to each other, or being in a fight (hahaha!) we always pick up the pieces.
Nothing is ever awkward.
I don’t say this often, but I do know that I am blessed to have her in my life.
All the way since elementary school.
And I’ve known that for a while, but today I was reveling in the greatness of having someone that is more than just a best friend. She’s my other half!
She’s helped me through my darkest times and she’s seen me when I’ve swallowed the sun!
And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Stay pausal, Eileen.
