My very first blog.

My very first blog.

So, I love my boyfriend and really felt it all over again last night. I can't comprehend how someone can be so understanding and respectful. I was feeling pretty down, with my PMS and the weather, and he asked me to vent to him, and I told him everything that was bothering me, including things that he was doing, and he hugged me and told me that he understood, and he would try not to do it in the future.

My friend, who has had an eating disorder in the past, has shown signs of it reoccuring. I told her that what she was doing was scaring me and I'm worried about her, and she then proceeded to text me later on in the night "I need to get out of the house. I need to throw up, and my roommates are catching onto me." On one hand, I know she can be somewhat of an "attention whore," and I am tired of hearing all of her drama (as she has told me lies about herself to me in order to get my sympathy on multiple occasions), but on the other, what if she isn't lying this time? What if she really needs help and I just turn my head to it? I'm not sure what to do, and I don't really want to do the wrong thing.

My sister is officially moving to Colorado on Monday. It's sad, but I'm excited for her and her husband's career advancement, and if all goes well, they should be back in southern California in 12-14 months. :D
