Full Circle-y-ness

I've been very happy. Life is good right now. Not perfect, but good. I've been dating a man named Kendall for almost 8 months now, i love him dearly, and things are progressing well. Work has been hard, but it's work. I just got a raise of over a dollar an hour. It makes me exhausted every day, but i like my coworkers a lot, don't hate the job, and am now making the most $/hr that i've ever made at a permanent job. I've been tired but good. Smiling a lot lately.

The full circle-ish-ness that i experienced today was interesting. After i had breakfast with Kendall i headed out to do some errands, and by the time i was hungry that afternoon i texted Ben and we went out to lunch. Ben and i have remained friends since the breakup. We went to Mio Sushi on Hawthorne, and after talking fora while randomly realized that it had been almost a year since we had broken up, and we had lunch together at that same place a few days after we'd broken up. That was an interesting realization, and one that i don't think either Ben or I feel bad about anymore either. It has kind of been excellent to remain friends. We both have supported and helped eachother out since. I think that's the ideal way things should go, after all, he meant a lot to me, we had a mutual breakup, it would be just sad and absurd to have not remained friends. After all, the caring doesn't go away, even if you don't want to be with somebody anymore.

He and i are both fairly happy in relationships with other people. So i'm sure that really helped too. I like Ben's girlfriend, she's smart and funny. It is too bad she doesn't live in Portland though, I mean double dates semi-regularly would be so fun!

loving my ex's matters a great deal to me.

the end of a romantic relationship is so hard. i can never understand why some people so completely turn their backs.

i'm happy for you and Kendall and happy about you and Ben, beauty.
