I think at any given point in time, we all have stress. We each have our places in life and roles we have to play... that means that we have responsibilities.
Right now, I'm a student. I am in school full time, with a mega course load. I'm also completing an internship with a Therapeutic Foster Care organization. On the side, I work for the Limited (which I love) and you know that I started my own lia sophia business. So, I'm busy.
This week, it hit me like a ton of bricks that this time around, it's not just me. I have a fiancee who counts on me to communicate as to whether or not I'm planning on cooking dinner or eating jelly beans. I have a puppy who counts on me to take her out and play with her. When I did college, it was just me. I worked, I studied, and I didn't have a life. I realize that I need to adjust my life a little to accommodate for them. So I'm a little bit stressed. Exams are coming up, readings are piling up, and papers have to be written.
I'm sorry I haven't been blogging or reading or commenting. I'm stretched to the max right now. But I love you all!!

These aren't people who have drifted. They are people from 3 different parts of my life...
Of course people have drifted out of my life but I always felt like at the same pace, more wonderful people have entered my life. I think I'm actually the drifter in many situations. Since 2003, I've lived (and paid rent) in Philadelphia, Delaware, Alexandria (VA), J-Ville (NC) and in Maryland. In each place, I made a great set of friends. But due to my circumstances, I don't always see these people all the time. However, if people who have drifted out of my life have taught me anything, it's that it takes two people to maintain a relationship. We BOTH have to care about what we have. So, I make a serious concerted effort to make sure that I keep in touch some way with those that are important to me. So, obviously, if you're important to me, you'll know it!
