I hope everyone had a good July 4th! Mine was pretty chill, just ate out with the fam, napped in the sun like a lazy cat, and cursed at people setting off fireworks at 2am because I had work on Friday ;)

Other Life Tidbits:
- I am terrible at thinking on my feet when I'm asked unexpected questions. I tend to default to honesty (usually a good thing), but in some cases, it results in hurt feelings. Yesterday, I ate lunch with a few co-workers that I have worked with since the beginning. Since I am leaving next week, they invited me to lunch and we had a great time catching up and just reminiscing....I'll miss them a lot. But when I got back, another co-worker who I am not so close asked me "where everyone went for lunch" and stupid me could not think of a good answer, so I blurted out "we went out to eat." I feel bad that her feelings were hurt, but I'm also annoyed because it's not anybody's business who I eat lunch with, especially since this is my last week at the office and I was invited to lunch, I didn't organize it. *sigh* I suppose I should have invited her myself, but I confess I just wanted to hang out with the people I felt comfortable with. It's situations like this I see how socially awkward and selfish I am. *sigh* Gah, some things never change!
- I can't believe that in a few weeks that I'll be in a different place doing something different, living a different life. Honestly, I just want to go now and feel like I am waiting impatiently for my life to just begin. It makes me happy and sad at the same time to feel this way. I'm so excited to be embarking on a new adventure, but I am saddened by how many years it took me to summon up the courage to do so. I wonder about the kind of person I'd be today if I'd been more courageous earlier.
