Last weekend, Lej invited us to lunch to celebrate the college degree he had just earned.
|Lej thanking God for the food on the table, and also that piece of paper he worked his butt off for 7 years, I bet.|
The whole thing was bittersweet for me because on one hand:
(1) a friend was graduating, finally,
(2) we got to eat good food, and
(3) I got to meet up with good friends I have not been seeing of late.
On the other:
(1) it was not me graduating, I still have a year to put in,
(2) it was not me graduating, and
(3) it was not me graduating.
I therefore conclude to rationalize my remaining time in college by thinking that all this time learning is "character building" (will not follow with a debate on whether or not I need more "character", that deserves a separate blogpost altogether).
Anyway, Lej, I am truly happy (and a little bit jealous, okay, a lot) for you. I will join your ranks in a year.
So, that afternoon, I drowned my sorrows with food!
Via Romana's Aubergine Filo Wrap, Crispy Kare-kare, and Paella.
When my tummy is happy, I feel happy. Meet my goofy friends:
Jamba juice and Bri looking unhappy about it.
Channeling Sex & the City and
Jayce channeling his sweet behind.
That's all for now, loves. Till the next 20 something frustration– check out Tick-Talkative for quarter life issues and more.
And Lej, Congratulations, I mean it. I, of all people, would know how hard it is to earn that degree.
