All grown up?

It's almost Christmas time and I'm super excited!!! 

I finished all my christmas shopping today and I'm officially broke. But this is one christmas I'm actually excited about.  I got the boy some toys I think he'll like, so I'm excited for him to open them. Hopefully I get good girlfriend points this christmas.

I also got my parents a pretty neat gift as well. And for my sister, she's a tough one to shop for, but I got her something cute. She's going to Spain next semester to study abroad and so she asked for ONLY things that she can take with her. Or things she can use on the plane, etc. So it was tough. 

On Friday, all my friends will come home from college for winter break. I'm excited to see them. We've all kind of headed our separate ways when it comes to our lives, but whenever we're home, we try to get together and catch up. One of my girlfriends, that use to be my roommate at the first University I attended, sent our group of girls this quote. It really fits with what we are all doing lately in our lives. 

"Let's face it, we've changed ... we've all changed. Somewhere between summer ending and school starting, we've all gone our own directions. Hearts were broken, friendships diminished, new loves started and new people came into our lives. We no longer spend all our time together in our circle of friends, we no longer talk for hours about nothing at all. We've changed ... some for the better and some for the worse. Some of us are finding love while others are trying to let go. Even though we've changed, we all know that even though were all finding our own place in the world, that when we find our love, when we let go of a love, when the tears fall or the happy smile spreads across our face ... we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us and no matter what happens, nothing will ever change so much that we're not all best friends forever."

C, my friend that was also my roommate freshmen year, is going to Graduate in a week!!! And already has a job. She's so lucky. My other friend, AK, is going to graduate in the spring. She's then going back to grad school. Same with my friend S. She's going to physical therapy school, after she graduates in the spring. Another one of my girlfriends is graduating from Notre Dame in the spring. She too, has a job set up already when she's done with school. She's a genius and we all knew she would get a great job out of college. And as far as I go, I still have a year and 1 quarter to go. I student teach in January 2012. I'm hoping it comes sooner rather than later. I'm sick of school. 

But the quote just states how far we've all come,yet how different we've all become, but the fact that we'll all still be there for one another.
