Goodbye, dear friend
It seems every year I lose a close friend to geography. Last year, my friend Jonny deserted me for Dallas. This week, Meredith deserted me for...China.
I am very sad that she left. She has been a close friend of mine for the past three years. We were both the youngest reporters at our newspaper and immediately became friends upon meeting.
She has a classy yet unique sense of style (as you can see from these photos) and a really upbeat attitude, which always put a smile on my face whenever I was sad.
We are the same height and weight (well, before I ballooned, haha) so that made shopping at the mall during our lunch breaks a lot of fun!
She is very easy to get along with so she instantly became good friends with my friends.
Meredith moved to China to be near her family. Her parents are university professors and they will be teaching over there. Her siblings are moving there as well. While I am sad she is gone, I am excited for all the adventures she will have overseas.
Knowing Meredith, she will gain new friends very quickly. Her sweet personality and instant ability to connect with strangers are qualities I always envied.
Hopefully our goodbye is not forever. She plans to visit me in the future and if I'm lucky, I may go visit her in China some day.
Plus, she plans to start a blog about her adventures. When she does, I will definitely give you the link. She's an amazing writer and has an adorable sense of humor. I'm surprised she isn't a blogger already!
Well, now you know about my friend. :) Only a week left before I finally get internet in my apartment! And I will be blogging all the time!
But for now, cheers! xo
