In all her wisdom and glory
I simply adore my lovely roommate Nina and I have been so blessed to have her in my life. She never ceases to amaze me with her wisdom and insight, far exceeding her years. Last night we had a marvelous chat session. We talked about school and friends and boys (but only a little bit, cause we're both kind of anti at the moment, so it was more of that aspect than the traditional girls-talking-about-boys stereotype). But mostly we talked about life. Our wishes for life, its hardships, the treasures that make it all worth it. And goals. She makes me want to go out and conquer the world, but mostly myself. She is helping me conquer myself. One flaw at a time, and she is so good at it. She just has a way of pointing out what needs to be worked on without making it personal or judgmental and giving me the motivation to actually accomplish it. But what's great about it is that for all of our polar opposites (and there are a surprising number of them; exactly, completely opposite), we are so similar in so many other facets, so I don't feel like I have to do it alone or that she is dictating from on high. We're a team, a self-betterment team. Friends. Love you oodles, Nines!
