July - week 1
This week, aside from it containing the fourth of July (I'll spare you all my pictures of fireworks), was filled with many tiny awesome things. I enjoyed feasting on funnel cake twice, I bought way too many dresses online from Forever 21--- I had to stop myself from buying 3 more today, and I lounged around and got to be lazy because I didn't have to go to work on Thursday or Friday.
In fact, when I'm not at work, I can usually be found lounging around lazily. There's not much to do on base, and I have, self admittedly, become that girl. You know, the one that moves to a new place, finds a new boyfriend and spends all of her time hanging out with said boyfriend because it's alarmingly hard to make new friends in the dorms.
The environment here is way more closed off. I've met a few people here and there, but aside from that, I'm not really friends with anyone. I don't have any friends to talk to or hang out with, aside from the people that I work with, which sounds really lame. But of course, I've only been here now for a little over a month, so I should give myself time to make friends, right? At tech school it was SUPER easy to make friends. All you had to do was say hello to someone and start a conversation. Here, everyone is so jaded. They've been here for so long that they've already established who they want to be friends with and spend their time with. They know all the cool places to hang out, all the little novelty places in the area, all of which are now rendered boring and lackluster.
Not having a large pool of friends is something that I will have to get used to for now. And I don't really mind hanging out with my boyfriend all the time. He's become my best friend because I literally have no one to talk about anything with.
Next week I'm going to go horseback riding (yay!) and also start FTAC--- which is pretty much a week of powerpoints, and maybe talk to my supervisor about taking leave some time in August. I've been debating whether or not I want to go back to Texas before the holidays--- each time I change my mind... :/
Plane tickets are expensive, I REALLY miss my baby brother, I don't know if I should visit home right now... Decisions, decisions... I mean, I have more than enough money right now to make the trip, but I just don't know...
