Laughter is the best medicine.

"A happy heart is like good medicine." 
~ Proverbs 17:22a 
That's probably one of the truest things I can think of right now. My stomach hurts from laughing so much tonight. (Have I ever mentioned that I love, love, love my friends?!? They are so wonderful...I'm so, so blessed to have them in my life. I seriously couldn't ask for a better group of friends. We're pretty much awesome.)

Tonight, we went to the Shenanigans improv show (congrats to Diff, Lauren, Richard, Harrison, and the rest of the crew--you guys did great!), then to Jazzy's (another reason my stomach hurts--I seriously need to stop getting their coffee...forever), where we sat outside the mail room for awhile, which we haven't done in what seems like forever. After that, we decided to head to Tharp and bake cookies and muffins, since the guys can officially come into the 2nd floor lounge. That was a good plan. I laughed so much tonight. It felt so good, just being in there with all of them. I like how I'm pretty much completely comfortable with most people here now. It's such a great feeling, knowing you can be yourself (even when it's completely lame) and they'll still love you.

Another funny thing: The complete irony of the situation. Last semester, the night of the Shenanigans show was the craziest night of my LIFE (or close enough). I was so confused, and entirely unhappy. Ha! I don't think I'll ever forget that. It's hilarious now, but man. Just all the awkwardness between me and a certain other person...ugh. Tonight? Total opposite. We are totally cool now, and I love that. We can joke around and carry on a legit conversation with no awkwardness! Thank. God. And I mean that literally--thank God! It was definitely all Him.

I am so happy right now. I like the feeling of being completely content and happy with life. It's nice to know God is looking out for me. :)

  1. I agree. I think that night we finally reached being truly comfortable with each other. It was one of the best nights I had at Lee so far and the best part was that we weren't really doing anything, we were just being ourselves.
