I want my brother to be here so we can celebrate his and my dad’s birthday with a big party after church at my grandparent’s house like we have for the past 25 years. I know he’s off with his new wife, starting new Christmas traditions in Orlando, but I’m selfish. I miss him more than he understands. I want to be waking up both my brothers on Christmas morning. Not just one. I hate that he won’t even be down here till noon, if we’re lucky on Christmas.
to a friend of mine, I’ve become inspired to write more on here. Not that I’ve had this long enough to say I’m slacking on entries.
Anywayssss.With Christmas fast approaching, I’ve become baffled by what I have in my life and how truly lucky I am.
If you know me at all, I’ve probably confessed my family’s lack of financial resources and money in general. Both my parents work full time and still struggle to pay for groceries, let alone the mortgage & bills. Today I received a 25cent[$8 an hour] raise at work and my mom gave me a look of envy. I’m lucky enough to have a boyfriend who doesn’t mind helping my parents pay for things, and won’t accept their money to pay him back for all he does for us. No, I’m not taking advantage of him, etc. I never ask for gifts or random extravagant shit. But I feel blessed to have someone who cares about me and therefore my family as much as Kyler does.
Also, I’ve been able to get closer to my closest friends this school year. Usually school has the opposite effect on my relationships. Things are strained, people are stressed and little things get blown out of proportion. However, this year I’ve had ample opportunities to see Margaux, who doesn’t even go to my school, and hang out with her almost every weekend. I was starting to forget what an amazing friend she’s been since 5th grade and I’m so excited to have her back as a constant in my life. In addition to that, Jessica,my twin, and I have been able to have numerous excursions around town and we get to see the most random things together. I love my twin to death, but when she moves 7 months from now, I know I won’t be able to hold back the tears. I knew that eventually my good friends would be moving for college and such, but I didn’t want it to happen. I wish we could all live within 10 miles of each other for the rest of our lives. But frankly, that will never happen. The only good thing about this, is that now I have a perfect excuse for driving my car[once I manage to save up for one] up to North Carolina to stay in my best buddies apartment.
I’ve also been lucky to keep my job at Publix. Which even though I complain every minute about, isn’t half bad. I’m paid above minimum wage, get tips when I shouldn’t, and even like most of my coworkers. I’m glad they’re finally considering moving me to cashier full-time as well :]
Lastly[wow i feel like I’m writing an essay for english], my family is amazing. They support my dream of being a baking & pastry arts chef and don’t doubt that I can succeed, despite my terrible grade in statistics. I also got to welcome someone new and awesome into my family this year. No, not a baby. A big sister that I’ve always dreamed of. She is nice and caring and I’m glad my brother married her. I can tell he’s happy, and even though I won’t see him as often now, I’m glad he’s happy.
