Change is in the air

It's the only constant thing in life

Well a lot has been happening in this apartment lately. But the most important one is that Jessica is engaged! I'm so excited for her and Kyle and the start of their new life together. They are so happy and in love. The majority of what I'm feeling is excitement and happiness for them. But if I am to be completely honest, there are also some serious mixed emotions.

Jess and I have been really close friends since sophomore year in high school. We have become even closer after coming to college and living with eachother. We've been through quite a bit. I consider her to be my other half, partner in crime, [insert another cliche name for a best friend].

But now she's gone and decided to get herself hitched and leave me.

This was bound to happen sometime. And I know it's supposed to be this way. But if I'm going to be completely honest again, it hurts wee bit. Not in a malicious why-are-you-doing-this-to-me kind of way but more of like a I-can't-believe-you're-leaving-meeeeeee-what-am-I-going-to-do kind of way. But I'm a big girl; I know I will be fine. Eventually. Jess sent me this the other day and it made me feel a little better {even if it was cheesy}.

So even though I get a little weepy sometimes just thinking about this big new change, I keep telling myself that this is the way things are supposed to be and that everything will work out. Although, I am a teensy bit nervous about my new roommate {and I'm willing to bet that she won't have as many cute clothes as Jess..} Goodbye to our pillowtalk, late night runs to 7/11 for Ben&Jerry's, coming home and going over our days together, insane laugh attacks, sleepovers, and our memorable quote book. And not only am I losing my roommate, I'm losing the wonderful Bath and Body Works soap she bought, the entire spice cupboard, the yummy smelling wallflowers, and the big tan belt that matches almost everything. {Buuuuut on the bright side, I get her foam mattress pad muahaha}.

I've never been a huge fan of change but I'm getting to the point where I can accept it. And to try to make this less of a pity party post, I'm going to give a shout out to one thing that isn't changing--I'm rooming with Carly again next semester! I'm so grateful that we are. I love that girl :) Our other roommate, Hillary, is also engaged so we might be getting two new roommates. Holy moly. But in the meantime, I'm going to enjoy all the talk of photography, dresses, centerpieces, invitations, colors, and rings. Happy Weekend! Enjoy the last bits of Fall {if it hasn't left already..}

  1. love this - but just so you know, in the past three days I have seen my old single roommates twice, and i'm sure i'll be over there again tonight ...so just because she's getting married doesn't mean she'll disappear :)
