I'm off to travel in 3 weeks. More importantly, I'm not working for 5 months starting in 3 weeks! I've never had that much time off from work since I was 14. I worked through high school, and college, and ever since. It's been a long 20 years of working, and I am just so excited to get such a nice break - and very thankful that my job gave me a leave of absence. I do feel like my time is already totally booked though. For some reason 5 months is feeling like not very much time at all - and I haven't even started it yet.
But to go off on a tangent - why is it that there will always be a close female friend who will cross the line with either an ex-boyfriend or someone you really like? Shouldn't it be automatically understood that these people are off limits? Especially when you confide in your friend about the man in question. I would never cross that line. Obviously, everyone is not like me - and that I'm sure is a good thing, don't get me wrong. Every 5 years or so there's another high school-esque betrayal, and it sucks. Sucks, I tell you. sucks.
