I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry! Ever since the Art Fair hit Ann Arbor, I’ve been nonstop busy with school, work, and friends.
So recently, I went to a coworker’s lake house party. I’m so happy I was able to do this because, as you know, it’s been on my bucket list for so long! We drove about 45 minutes from Ann Arbor to his house on the bank of this cute lake.
Isn’t it marvelous?
I apologize for the state of my beach body haha. But I didn’t let that stop me from having a blast. Or from eating nonstop the entire day.
Thankfully, this one guy is a camera person and took pictures of us. Otherwise, I’d have nothing to show!
Originally, me and another girl had to work dinner. After texting literally everyone begging for them to take our shifts, we ended up texting a younger manager who gave us both the night off. So we spent the whole day at the lake :). 12 hours in the ridiculously clean, warm lake water.
In the middle of the day, a downpour started. Did that stop us? Hell no! We ran out to the lake and played in the water anyways. It was one of the best days I’ve had in a while. Just no worries, surrounded by nature, immature water fights, and good friends.
Also, that guy in the green swim trunks? Hello!
I’ve been hanging out with coworkers more lately and it’s been amazing! How often is it that you work with a ton of cool kids—who all get along well together?
This might be a little juvenile of me, but for the majority of my life until now, I’ve been in friend groups made mostly of females. Having a nice balance of guys and girls doing anything just makes things fun and rowdy. And not like the douchey guys because who wants those around? These are the alternative, really nice, friendly guys. And they’re awesome
But when it came to skinny-dipping, which we DID end up doing under the moonlight, it was a little strange for the boys to be hanging around. Green shorts guy was the first one to do it and we all decided that we had to skinny-dip at least once in our lives.
All I have to say is: it should happen more often.
I kind of feel like I’m suspended in the sweet spot between real life and college life right now. Where I have just enough responsibility to have obligations always in the back of my head right now; but not quite enough for it to interfere with days like this.
All I can hope is that after graduation and sorting out real life issues that I can enjoy days like this with people I love. I hope it’s naive of me to assume that these days are only for us young kids and inaccessible by adults often. But for now, I’m going to live the hell out of it. Because for days like these, everything is worth it.
