She Will Have Me Crying

Today, my school clinician gave me some graduation gifts. A box with little messages inside, a card she’s written, and a box of scented candles.

She’s the first therapist in school I had that I really liked. It always feel like going to see a friend rather than going to a scheduled appointment. We have serious discussions on occasions, but we’re usually just chatting and laughing together. Today, I showed her some characters I made.

After I graduate, I stay in the therapy center’s system for an additional year, so I have one more year with her. I thought that was the strangest thing I’d ever heard, but I’m not complaining!

I’m certain I’ll be fine at the graduation ceremony, but if I cry over anyone, I know it will be her. Out of everybody I’ve met in my entire school life, she’s probably my favorite. I can’t be in therapy forever and I know I’ll have to leave her eventually. Our ages are too vast for any kind of friendship. Still, it’ll be hard. I’ve never had too difficult of a time leaving any school, but she’s going to have me crying an ocean.

Valentine Friends

In four days, one of by favorite holidays will have arrived: Valentine’s Day.

We all know what Valentine’s Day is about. Love, hugs, candy and chocolate! Yum, chocolate! It’s also a day many couples choose to do something special like a movie, dinner date or, if they’re really feeling the love in the air, sex.

Valentine’s Day is also hated by a lot of people. Usually, it’s either single people or people whose partner is absent for whatever reason.

I’m single. I’ve never been in a relationship or even had a crush. Well, there is my pen pal, but it seems those feelings have faded and now, they’re purely platonic. Yet, I love Valentine’s Day! I look forward to this day.

Valentine’s Day is when I try to be extra sweet and cheerful. I show my friends and family more attention because I love them (even if my family grates on my nerves 75% of the time) and that’s what Valentine’s Day is about. Love. But instead of love and romance, I say love and friendship.

Since I am broke, my friends can look forward to Valentine e-cards this year. As for me, I don’t usually get anything because my friends aren’t as crazy about this holiday as I am. But that’s alright. It’s a nice gesture that makes them smile and makes me feel good.
