I decided I needed the spend the night out. I worked on my last school paper all morning so I figured I also deserved the night out! I went to the mall to get a couple more Christmas presents. I am almost done this year, which I am pretty happy about. When I was finished shopping I decided I would get a pretzel for dinner (aka, the only thing I had basically eaten all day). I jumped on Facebook as I sat there alone and ate it.
What I found on Facebook was the most amazing thing ever. My best friend Amanda was home. I called her immediately and we made plans to go to a show at a new venue in town. I got to spend the whole night with her after one the crappiest days ever. We got to catch up so much and share some funny stories, some concerns and give some advice.
When I am with the people that I love, I have a better outlook on life. This afternoon I thought it was one of the worst days of my life. Amanda saved the day, literally. I will always be grateful for the trial and the terrific-ness of November 30th 2013.
