Many memories to be had, many friendships made and lost. Many people forgotten, inside jokes and clever words exchanged only to be blown away by the winds of time. Unable to predict the future, I look back at all the things I’ve expected and see the beauty that has come from the unexpected. The people in your life who you’ve sworn you’d never stop talking to are but a distant memory in the past. Things you’ve felt giddy about now leave you wilh a slight tinge of embarrassment.
Life is like that, I guess, always leaving you guessing.
I was looking at my facebook feed from 3 years ago and reliving the memories that came with that, all the trolls and the jokes and the laughter, the crushes and the heartaches.
I was looking a specific post showcasing my best friend and I being bitter about the concept of love, showing our past opinions alongside our present names and profile pics, her new last name and me smiling with my wonderful boyfriend. It’s weird to believe that a couple of months from that time, we would both be in relationships. We pretty much felt hopeless before then.
That is the way of the world. I still get giddy when I see my boyfriend arrive to my house after a day at work. I jump down the steps like a little girl about to receive a wonderful present. I can’t contain the amount of love I still feel for him, sometimes embarrassing that I can’t hold it back but he knows.
