Long Walks and Good Talks

Today was a suprisingly good day. I didn't expect it to be good, so it was a pleasant suprise. Or maybe I just had low expectations for the day so I appreciated the little things more than I usually would.
My day started bright and early. I wouldn't let Thomas say goodbye last night. I forced him into having breakfast with me this morning instead. When my alarm clock went off, I started to regret that decision just a tiny bit. Haha, but it was good. Once I was able to get out of bed and wake up I was glad I woke up for breakfast. It was a good goodbye. We didn't talk about goodbyes at all at breakfast. We just pretended it was a normal breakfast, not the last time we'll see each other for two years. Then I said "See you in two years!" and walked away. Rather briskly. I decided a quick goodbye without thinking about it being the last time I'll see him for two years was the best option.

I tried to study for Book of Mormon after breakfast, but I don't remember getting much accomplished...oh wait! I remember. I worked on my writing project instead. That's what I did. Yeap. Then I had work. My last day of work for the semester! It was pretty normal. Except I did have to partially train a new guy. That was...fun. Except not really, haha. But that's okay.

After work I headed to campus to work on our group project for writing. We present tomorrow, and I think it has the potential to be really good. I'm not a big fan of presentations, but I've gone over my part several times and I think I'm ready. I'll go over it again in the morning and then rock it. Or at least that's the plan.

When I got back from working on the project, I went to dinner with my pals. Then it was back to the books. And working on the presentation. But that didn't last long. I was studying for my Book of Mormon final when my door opened and Megan walked in. She couldn't focus on studying and wanted to go on a walk. Naturally I put away the books and grabbed a jacket. We ended up walking for two hours. We just walked and talked. I love having a best friend I can talk to about anything. Talks with Megan are the best. She is such a good example to me and I am SOOOOOO lucky to have her as a friend. It's going to be incredibly lame not to have her around all summer. Who else is going to go on two hour night walks with me and run away from scary ducks?

I think sometimes we don't realize that not being able to focus on homework might really be a prompting. I didn't know I needed that walk with Megan, but I think Heavenly Father did. I am thankful for friends who show up out of the blue when you need them most - even when you think you're completely fine.
