What can YOU say in six sentences?
I had a slew of friends - we would get drunk and laugh and dance until the bars kicked us out. I had my first real job – I would show up late, leave early, and take long breaks while I sat on a grassy hill contemplating my existential dilemma. I had a husband – my college sweetheart, the natural next step, no shock, no surprise, no spontaneity.
And then in the effort of finding ourselves, it seemed we had lost each other.
The divorce came in a fury not long after we had married, when we could not bear to fool ourselves any longer, and my slew of friends and first real job were pulled into the marital ruins. Fast forward to the present - a new slew of friends that will stand by my side through any unfortunate circumstance, another real job, a career, a world of opportunity, and a man who has opened my eyes to show that there is nowhere in space or time I’d rather be.
