Real Life New Girl
circa end of Season 2. Why? Well I’m currently living in a house with not one or two or three guys but FIVE. yep. In a house with 5 testosterone filled human beings. Needless to say it’s pretty interesting. Today luckily is the first day that everyone is gone, so of course I celebrate my new and upcoming victories by walking through the house a-la-nude which feels fucking great.
Life so far is completely different and unexpected than how I imagined it to be last summer but pleasant nonetheless. My summer days are filled with the Spokane heat, shisha and new discoveries. Bees by the way really love the smell of shisha smoke which definitely might pose as a small problem seeing I’m allergic to them but who gives a fuck. Life in general is just good.
The last of my cancer get’s removed on the 27th inshallah and I can’t thank God enough these days. While I know that I’m pretty fucking socially awkward and definitely have difficulties maintaining friendships due to the nomadic TCK lifestyle I’ve been raised with, it’s so refreshing to learn the value, importance and real meaning friends have in your life.Growing up all over the world you really don’t value friends the same way someone who has lived in one place their whole life. When you’re constantly globe trotting from the Middle East to South America to Africa to Europe and then back to the Middle East, “friends” there understand the temporary place they have. There is no permanence in each others lives and while when they catch up in some odd place by chance it’s great, there’s no real interaction from the point you left to the point you meet again.
Comparatively each side has its benefits, in one world you see the whole world literally but you lack that friend support system. On the other you grow with a circle of friends but might not see and experience as much. Living here though and going to Whitworth and making friends that from the beginning of my diagnosis of my cancer who actually are there is astounding. I couldn’t thank them enough and I’m so glad I’m getting to experience and discover what it means to have real friendships. I might be learning still but I’ve never been this excited to learn something and I can’t wait to be there for them when they need me.
So here’s my early cheers to a cancer free year, friends and family and adderall for keeping me sane.
