in honor of my homies

In honor of my homies, who put up with my feminist rants and who find this as funny as I do.

I have never been good at making friends. I am not one of those people that people are just drawn to and I do not let many people into my “inner circle.” Indeed, one of the expectations I had for this year was that I wouldn’t HAVE to befriend anyone new, as if it would be a drudgery.

As I enter into new phases of my life I have found myself in places where I do not have any “friends.” I attend church and various volunteer events by myself and for the first time in my life I am becoming comfortable with uncomfortable small talk.

I have been worried about doing these things by myself, but each new experience that I have jumped into has proved to be wonderful and rewarding. I am making new friends and I am learning that it isn’t as hard as I once thought, it is even exciting at times.

So, if you are one of those people that I call my friend, know that I am thankful for the comfort that I find in our friendship. There is nothing quite like melting into the presence of another person.

And if you are one of those new people in my life that is becoming a friend, here’s to the inevitable awkward moments that we will surely share. May we come to look on them fondly in time, perhaps with a chuckle or two…

it’s official

I’m a crier…

There was a time in my life when I would not, no could not, cry. No matter how much I tried and no matter what awful things I thought about tears just would not come. Now, as I sit in my room watching a movie alone, or as I read the happiest except from a book my eyes well up with tears and I cannot help myself.

Today I cried twice. Once while watching this movie…

and once while reading this book…

both are super awesome and I recommend them highly.

Today was a day of finishing books. In true Adri fashion I have been reading two books at once over the past 3 weeks (not including the books I am reading for school. However, today both of these books came to an end.

The first, Half the Sky, was amazing and I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to read a little about the women of the world. While it is not for the faint of heart, it is one worth reading, if only to educate yourself.

The second was The Mysterious Benedict Society. I had heard that this was written in the vain of A Series of Unfortunate Events, which I loved, so of course I had to read it. I was a little disappointed (but of course I am a college senior reading a book meant for middle school students).

Mostly I am excited to have finished it because this means that I get to start Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. This will be my first time with Dostoevsky but I have heard nothing of good things and I loved my last experience with Russian literature so I am really looking forward to this adventure. Also, I bought an absolutely awesome copy at a market a couple weekends ago… for all my fellow book lovers, it is like holding a little piece of heaven.
