There’s just something so satisfying about hanging out with people you know love you so completely, despite all your strangeness and neediness and regardless of the fact that you’ve really only known each other for 6 weeks. It’s such a strange feeling to know these people so deeply after such a short time, but somehow it’s been possible. When all we’ve had is each other in a new city and new experience that we’ve been going through together, it’s been so natural to support, love, and draw strength from these friends. Ups and downs and everything in between, these guys (plus a few more that weren’t in this selfie) have been through it all. It’s a glorious feeling.
But I’m guessing you’re here because the title said something about a secret? Well, sorry, I can’t tell you quite yet! Stick around till next Monday’s weekly wishes and I’ll be able to spill everything! Just know that it’s something really really exciting and I absolutely can’t wait to share it!
This past week was the very last week of TFA summer institute. We made it. Now I have about a month off to explore and fall in love with this city before school starts and winter comes. Today is a day of healing- my body and exhaustion caught up with me this weekend but now I’ve got some lovely antibiotics to kick it straight out of town.
This week’s goals are simple, really.
1) Get everything packed up to move into my new apartment!
2) Get rid of some things that I really just don’t need anymore.
3) Explore the city and surrounding areas. I’ve got some interesting day trips planned out this week that I’ve excited for!
4) Feel better! I’m sure with a combination of actually getting some sleep, the antibiotics, and relaxation coming up it’ll be easy to do!
And that’s that! What are your goals for the week? Let me know in the comments so I can cheer you on from my bed between Netflix marathons and soup runs from the Panera downstairs!
