The party was spectacular. Friends from old, new friends, and work friends all gathering around drinking and partaking in shenanigans together. Including moving my friends scooter and taking pictures on it. Fun night was had by all, and the morning followed with breakfast and... ahem drinking some beer left over to get us ready to start packing my belongings up.
I absolutely love the people here I have befriended, loved, and held dear here in Michigan. These friends are going to be there for eternity. And even though I've made such wonderful new friends and rekindled friendships this summer, I must move on. And I'm excited for when I can visit my friends and they visit me.
This year has been quite bittersweet. It started out beautifully and then came crashing down. But in that turmoil I began to build myself back. And now I'm so excited for my new life and am laughing everyday. Some people ask if I feel I've dodged a bullet, but in all honesty I loved my life then, and I love my life now. I have an opportunity to live a new life, and am so excited for it.
I love my friends so much, and am going to miss them incredibly.
