Most exciting news EVER, people:
Roxy is coming to visit in less than a month! She'll be here for the weekend of Quinceañeras, and then I'm taking a week of vacation so we can travel around Guatemala together!
Exactly one year ago, Roxy and I became random summer roomies gracias a the NYU Office of Residence Life, and I gotta give ResLife credit. They got it right, and we had such a fun summer.
Roxy and I share a love of weekend morning yoga classes, pommes frites at all hours of the night, wine, accidental trips to Staten Island, random trips to see the ballet at Lincoln Center, the sound her phone makes when it receives a text, cowboy boots, Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights and Ghost (pure coincidence that Patrick Swayze appears in both), and Spanish-speaking countries (she just got back from four months in Cuba) -- just to name a few.
In the entire course of our friendship, we've only actually been in the same city for six weeks. That's weird to realize. However, after dozens of emails and phone calls and Gchats and discussions of eventually rooming together again in New York City, we've just sort of realized: this is one of those happened-upon friendships that really sticks. :)
SO excited to see her three weeks from Friday!
