Hello lost souls. I have to apologize for my absence. I’ve had so many things happen within these last few days that I don’t think I can sum it up into just one post. I was left with no other choice but to hold off on my book review until I was able to finally have time alone again.
I know what’s done is done but I feel extremely guilty for not being consistent. Don’t worry though! That does not mean that the book review has been put off. I still have every intention of posting it. For the next few days, I should be left alone in peace once more and finish what I started in the first place.
With that being said, I thought I’d let you guys in with some other news relating to my life. On Thursday I have a friend flying in to visit me. I did mention this in a previous post but since then things have gotten slightly edgy. I was left wondering if her trip would actually happen and it worried me.
So now with bags under my eyes, I write this post to say that everything has turned out to be just fine. When she arrives I will be more focused on having her settle in up here and showing her around the city. Though I can’t help but feel like I am under pressure because she is going through a fresh break up of three years and that has caused her to be immensely depressed.
She’s not up for a lot of the things that I’ve suggested and that makes me nervous. Voluntarily, my amazing girlfriend is willing to help me and take on some of the weight. I couldn’t have been more grateful. Of course if I could, I wouldn’t want her to be involved because it’s a huge responsibility to take on; taking care of someone who can no longer see the light of day. Though she knows that in my past experience, I’ve always ended up deeply affected because my psyche is weak.
Although I have some self doubt I still couldn’t have been more excited for her visit. I still have so many other things planned that she may be more willing to do. The flight ticket has already been purchased and the plans have already been set in stone. So there is nothing left to do other than go through with what has to be done.
If there is any advice or tips on how to help a friend in need I’d greatly appreciate it. I’m only trying to fill in the shoes of the ultimate best friend she sees me as…
