I knew her in high school. We didn’t always run in the same circle of friends, but our high school wasn’t one of the largest. She was perpetually happy, and there was a never a high school function that I didn’t see her at.
Fast forward, 9 years later. She is telling me a story and I cannot believe that this is the same bubbly girl I once saw bouncing down the hallways of my high school. My friend suffers from severe bipolar depression, an illness that creeps up on you as it did my friend.
Listen, it’s not every time that I regret making weekend plans, in fact it’s hardly ever that this happens. I am extremely extroverted so, honestly, it’s rare that I don’t want to do anything on the weekend. It’s only when I have “one of those weeks” where work has sucked every ounce of energy from my body and I literally have nothing left to give.

2016 is coming to an end and until I really sat here and really thought about it I had not realized what a memorable and amazing year it has been. There was an underlying theme of ‘memory making’ this year. So many wonderful things happened, things that I will remember for the rest of my life
For the entirety of my young adult life, my New Years Resolutions have always been the same. I think the reason my resolutions end up being the same every single year is because every year I would never actually follow through with them. So every new year, was a another year I was going to “really do it this time”.
