It's 8:30 pm, my flight is supposed to be boarding now. Instead, it's delayed. Yay for me. So I've sat myself down at the bar, ordered a campari, and opened my computer. I'm flying back home to New York from a nice long weekend spent at home home [which is Richmond Hill]. I think this was the first trip home home that made me realize how quickly the people in my life are growing up. I met Shai, Sandra's new baby [I don't think I've mentioned the girls on this new site yet, you can click here to be redirected to old iCandi posts] on Saturday night before the ladies and I went to eat at our favouritre restaurant in the City, Lee's. My older sister Tina is married, all my little cousins have instagram, and facebook and can play baseball better than I can, my little sister just finished writing her MCAT, my brother is getting better looking by the day, I'm heading back to a city that I'm slowly calling home. My guy friends are turning into men, I'm talking to you on a whole new grown up version of iCandi, I shipped off orders earlier today to people who are actually interested in pieces that I designed [a dream of mine that has come true]. And on top of it all, when the hell did I become a 26 year old? This is all just happening too fast. [side note: flight delayed another hour, "another Campari please"]
Maybe I'm just getting emotional, or a little tipsy, but life is happening. Big things are happening. My friends are bringing other humans into the world. It's incredible to watch. We are growing up. Ew.
Oh, flight just got cancelled. This day has been one of those days that just seriously needs to come to an end. [takes a sip of her cocktail]
