[Trigger warning for general talk of death and mourning.]

This past weekend was kind of tough for me; Saturday was the third anniversary of Jessica’s death, which, as Tia and I were discussing over gchat, seems both infinitely long and infinitely short. Three years? Really?

I had some old college friends over on Saturday, which was nice–I wasn’t alone with my brain, and we cooked and played games and had a fun day. I don’t have friends come visit too often  since most of them live at least an hour away, so it was a treat.

Sunday I took my bike to be fixed by the kind bike bros at REI, and did some thinking and writing. (Okay, and I probably also watched lots of TV.)

Madéleine Flores recently made a comic that feels very relevant to me right now; go have a read if you feel like smile-crying a little bit. I miss Jessica, but I’m glad she was in my life. I’m glad I had her as a friend. 

I’m glad I have you all as friends, too. Thanks, folks.

  1. I haven’t lost any close contemporaries at this point in my life. I can’t imagine how hard that must be. I’m glad you had friends with you that night.

    On another note, what games do you play? Any chance you’re a euro strategy-gamer and I can imagine that if you ever come to Portland we can hang out and game? : )

    • I’m not gonna lie, it’s tough! I’m sure losing a best friend is hard at any point.

      I’ve dabbled in Euro-style games but I’m not very good at them, haha! My friend is a bigger gamer than I am, and I’m usually introduced to that kind of game through her. This time we played a quick game of Love Letter as well as some computer game demos. I find board games super interesting but strategy isn’t my strong suit, so I usually sit back and lose.

  2. (((hugs))) to you, Mia! The second anniversary of my son’s best friend’s death was just before Christmas. It’s a tough time for him, but this second anniversary was a little less painful than the first one. Our loved ones live on in our memories, and my son takes comfort in the hope of seeing his friend in heaven someday. It’s good that Jessica lives on in your memories and that you keep her in your life by remembering her in special ways.
