I was taking one of my random trips down memory lane last night and there are just so many people that I don't keep up with like I should. I'm really bad about that. Like i'm seriously allergic to the phone. I hardly even call my own mother (not that i really have to since she only 30-45 minutes away- but still) so you know i rarely take the time to call my friends. Its awful, i know. I'm trying to change though. So here's a short list of people in life that i'm missing:
My Besties...my sisters, the women that gave birth to my Godchildren. We have literally been through it all. Over 15 years of friendship. Its crazy. Its been forever and a day since we've been in the same place at the same time. We went from living across the street from each (and around the corner) to living across the country from each other (and across the state). *sad face* This pic was taken, i wanna say when were about 16 years old. Please do not let the innocent smiles fool you lol. Life was one humongous roller coaster ride with these women but i wouldn't have traded most (not all- there are definitely a few occasions i think we could have done without) of our experiences for the world.
My Special Pookie
Iyawo mi! Nwunye'm! My #1 Lady! I actually just talked to her over the weekend and we have plans to meet up in the near future. But i miss her desperately. Its been almost a year since we've seen each other and even then, it was only for a few minutes. Its funny, i met her so many times before i actually knew who she was. Then bam, outta nowhere she became like one of my favorite people in the world! You know how you have someone that you can share anything with? That's my Toyin! We talk about everything- all the local gossip, life, love, drama, school, family...EVERYTHING. Not to mention how she held me down as my Vice President during my Presidential term in the African Students Association (in addition to forcing me to run for that position lol). Needless to say, i am crazy excited to see her soon :)
