P: People

This has been a new semester for me, because it is the first where I have my own room.
And while this is nice in some ways {having my own bit of space and all} I find that more often than not, I am just lonely.
There is no one that is going to come in and tiptoe to their bed late at night.
There is no one to talk to at 2:00 in the morning.
There is not a soul in sight to save me when I hear a scary noise and get a little bit frightened. There is no one to giggle with.
There is no one to argue about the laundry all over the floor with.
There is no one to fight with about who was the last one up that should turn off the light.
There is no one to just be with.

And today I discovered that I kind of like people.
Sure, maybe they annoy me sometimes, but I like having a person.
And my roommate has always been my person for me.
I need someone to be here when I'm in a bad mood.
That way, I don't just sit alone and sulk.
There is someone there to tell stupid jokes and make me forget why I was so darn cranky in the first place.
So Dawna, come back.
And come back soon.
Because I am not doing so well here on my own.
That goes for you too Katie Kelly.
And Heather.

{Did you take this picture of you guys, Elfie? I thought you didn't take pictures of yourself...}

  1. It is difficult to find the 'companion' slot vacant. It's relieving to have someone close enough to you as to allow expression without reservation. I haven't had anyone like that in a long time and it is as lonesome as you describe.

    We'll overcome.

  2. Awe Reyna I'm just downstairs! Don't be scared alone in your room! K? Yeah. Just until Dawna gets back :)

  3. Sounds to me like you need a a HUS-BAND. They are a lot more fun than roommates.
    But, I do love my old college roommates. I also love people. Just put another notch on our similarities tree. love you.

  4. Ok, so I know I was never TECHNICALLY your roommate, but A. I kinda was and B. I will be, so I feel sad that this whole post about people you love did not include me. Foolishness.

  5. Dear Kenzie, we have not yet shared a room. Therefore, you did not make it onto this post. Also, I don't have any pictures of us. There will be plenty more posts about people I love where you will be the only focus. Really.


Because I love to hear what you think, leave a comment!
