...this is how I would like to sum up my life. It's the best compliment I think I've ever received:
Talking to Erin is like wearing your favorite jammies in front of the fireplace. It just feels good.
AlliCadem came to my house this weekend and it was absolutely what I needed. During a time when I felt like a Big Fat Failure, she was able to see me just for me. No expectations. I needed that.
It's good to be around someone that is Chill. And has the "Whatever, Dude" mentality. Sorry, AlliCadem, I don't have any food in my house. "Whatever, Dude. Let's go to Ruth's Chris." Sorry, AlliCadem, my AC doesn't really do much upstairs (where you'll be sleeping). "Whatever, Dude. It's all good."
I've found someone that I can just Be around. I don't have to be Erin Rages, or Tucker's mom, or the funny girl that's good at holding a conversation. I don't have to stroke her ego. I don't have to be anything I'm not. I can just Be. Around her, I just Am. I love that more than she'll ever know.
If you can find someone that's able to bring this out in you, hold onto them for dear life. And try not to sound totally desperate when you leave them a voice mail saying, "Ok, so I've decided that you need to move here. Like, immediately."
