20?! That’s so weird to me. But, it doesn’t even feel like my birthday. Nevertheless, if I’m in class all day, it doesn’t seem like my actual birthday and my teenage years are over, I will have a great day.
Tonight I am having an amazing dinner with one of my best friends! I’m so excited for our date night.
When things are going right someone has to mess it up.
My real father is infamous for this. He just wished me happy birthday through an email. It shook me up really bad. I told him not to speak to me this past March. He has only contacted me one other time and that was for money reasons. I have worked too hard to go back to the girl that he broke. He crushed me, for years.
But, I was talking to Derek about it and he was trying to help me and he was doing an amazing job and then I decided to finish my homework and deal with my dad later and he was like “Okay, I’m here whenever, when you’re done or if you want a break, I’m here for you, Nicole. I love you honey. Remember, I’ll be home soon” He melted my heart and I am tearing up writing all of this. I am so thankful for Derek.
Back to the real world. I’m working on this big project and thinking about how big this week is going to be. I’m so excited for my birthday, just to be out of teens and I am moving into my own apartment with my sister. I feel like I am growing up. I hope this optimistic and empowered feeling lasts. Lets cross our fingers and hope for the best going forward.
First, I have an interview for a manager in training position at one of my favorite stores. My internship is ending and they are hiring me as freelance, but they will scarcely need me. Therefore I need a new job. I need money. I need to progress. Manager in training, would be moving up and a job!
Then, I am going into work for four hours. I love work. I love being there and it is only a few hours.
After, my sister is picking me up and we are going home to the burbs for the weekend. We will then figure out everything with the apartment. We will work it out. I’m so ready to move!
Later, once I get home I am going to my boyfriend’s parent’s house for dinner. I’m so excited to see his parents, mostly his mom. I love her. We talk usually about every two weeks. I’m lucky that she likes me.
Then, the day will be over and Thanksgiving will be here!
I have a lot to do. It’s 1:25 and I haven’t done anything, besides shower. I’m going to go apply for a job. I need to do this project. I need to call Derek’s mom. I need to pack to go home for a few days. I should do laundry. Derek wants to talk about everything.
Tonight, its a date with one of my best friends! I’m so excited!
