Fun? With a friend? For reals?

Today was a good one. =) On Thursdays I only have two classes, and they're in the morning. After my Keyboard Harmony class, I went home, and got my little piano keyboard and took it outside. The sun was shining and the sky was blue and weather was in the 30's, so I sat by my door and practiced piano. It was glorious. Definitely not perfect, but rather glorious. Then my roommate Melina invited me to come to the DI with her. She wasn't expecting me to say yes, and was prepared to bribe me. But I immediately agreed to come. We rode the bus there, had plenty of great conversations, and had a great time shopping. She bought some shoes for herself and a telescope for her nephew, and I tried on multiple outfits, and ended up buying four pieces of clothing. I'm really excited about them. =) Then we came back home and had ice cream that Melina offered to share with me. The whole afternoon was simple and cheap, but it meant a lot to me! I got invited to do something! With someone other than my boyfriend or my family! I haven't had a girl friend that I could hang out with consistently, for quite a long time. Melina and I decided we're going to exercise together in the mornings to keep each other motivated, and I'm looking forward to it. It feels good to have a friend. =) We're pretty different (countries, majors, religion, and so forth) but we're also a lot the same - we love music, we're vegetarians, we value hard work when it comes to school, and we dearly love Jesus Christ.

I'm ever so busy, but I'm enjoying the things I'm studying, and pretty much really liking life! And I get to see Jeff tomorrow. So all in all, I'm going to bed happy. Sounds like an ordinary miracle to me!
