As I get ready to finish my last week in my current rotation, I can’t help but think about what an incredible year this has been. There are a lot of things I could talk about (and at some point likely will because I have learned so much this year), but as I said goodbye to Maria tonight (she’s leaving for P-town to start law school), I can’t help but think about just how amazing it is that one year after moving here I have such an incredible group of girlfriends.
In fact, just tonight, I was reminded again of when I met some of them last year during a weekend in Rhode Island (some I knew before that trip, but have gotten to know much better since). I had no idea at the time that these girls would become some of my closest friends here in the city.
Reflecting on that, I can’t help but think about just how blessed I have been my entire life in the friend department. Following my “common denominator” logic, I would like to believe that I have been a good friend and, therefore, have been able to have good friends. But I know that there have been times when such has not been the case, and yet I have still been blessed. I don’t know how I would be where I am today without the friendships that I’ve had and continue to have (including my family, as I consider them my best friends).
I’m so glad that when I interned here two years ago, I ended up living where I lived because it was in the same building as Sara and Alisa and, as a result of those friendships, I now have the loveliest little group of friends I could have hoped for. And while some of them are moving on, I am so grateful for them all.
And with the next Rhode Island trip just around the corner, I can’t wait to see what the year ahead holds and the fun adventures we will go on. And I promise to start blogging more about those adventures and less about my whiney pants pity parties.
