day 1171 – twosome

weathering that rainstorm and numerous power outages across vancity with some wings, pizza and salad. staying dry indoors and feasting happily to honour another one if our special days. this one purposely drives me crazy at times. giving each other hard times is what we do, but above all he makes me happy knowing i can be me. he’s a butt, but a good butt

day 1110 – companionship

image

sundays are meant to be lazy, but we started off the day by hitting up nash because we both needed our lifting fix. the laziness ensued with a movie and some shopping before our evening feast. our busy and ever changing schedule has made it difficult for us to workout together, but we made it happen on one of our significant days. it’s been one heck of a ride, i am so glad to have a companion by my side for the roller coaster ride we call life

day 1079 – partner in crime

there were uncalled emotional moments which i couldn’t suppress. tears happened because i have been pretending to be strong for too long. i can count on him knowing he wants to be there during my worst and toughest moments. it has been very tough lately, but i know it’s much easier to weather the storm together. happy for the passing of another month; keeping it strong and keeping it real throughout

day 898 – meet or meat

image

today is not just any friday, it’s a fries day lunch date. i am a first timer at this restaurant and lots on their menu sounded really good. i stuck with the mountain burger today, but next time i definitely want to try all their other items. it was a good time with good company, good laughs and good chats. this was a treat meal and a celebratory one for making it through the week, making it past all the stresses, and making it to the deadline even though i had to sleep at 3am to finish. hopefully i get some much needed and deserved sleep tonight

i have said it again and again, and i will say it again. first decade of your life everyone you meet is either your friend or your enemy. second decade is when you learned a little better, have a large group of friends even though you learned not to hastily call everyone friends. beyond the first two decades is when you have to figure out who your friends really are as you will no longer have a ginormous list of friends. because you will soon realize that people will start disappearing and there isn’t enough time to go around for everyone. don’t get me wrong i am not an introvert; i do believe in networking and i find ways to develop my network whenever i can. with that said, i value all the different social groups and population i meet through an assortment that stretches across many breadths and fields. i am completely aware that my list of friends are shrinking but i have now realized that i only need a handful of close buddies that i can turn to in any situation at any point in time and they will be there for me no matter what happens. working hard to surround myself with the right people that will be a positive impact to my life and stay true to my real friends because they are the ones i want to grow old with. i am working hard to becoming a greater influence whenever my friends are in need of a pick me up moment. true friends don’t let you fall alone, i would know because they picked me back up countless times
