No offense to Mitt Romney, but this song is very catchy and hilarious. Actually, almost everything by Schmoyoho is on my fun list. So, I was editing the photos from a BBQ we had the other day, and it made me thinking how I love people... haha but seriously, I do, and why is making good friends suddenly so much harder when I'm 25 than it ever was?! You know, building friendships is a lot like dating: it takes lots of time, effort and emotional determination. And it just seems like after college it gets harder to divide 24 hours in nice chunks for work, family, grown-up responsibilities, good old friends, and getting to know new people. How do you find time to spend with your friends if you're not in college anymore?
Because of all of the reasons I mentioned above, I'm learning to truly appreciate every time I get to hang out with my friends without worrying about being somewhere else doing something else that I have on my to-do list. Ben and I usually try to meet with our Sandpoint friends for lunch from time to time, go hiking or to the beach, organize a BBQ evening.. In summer it's 500 times easier! Our latest gathering was super fun, a huge thank you goes to Ben's parents for providing us with their backyard and grill!
The next few months promise a lot of heart-warming activities, including a camping trip in Montana with one of our best friends (I can't wait and I hope we all make it there!), and a wedding in Utah with many-many amazing friends coming from all over the country. Even looking forward to it makes me feel very comfy and happy inside.
