Once upon a time, a friend was getting married. She had quite a few bridesmaids for her wedding, and I was delighted to be one of them. There were the standard events- bachelorette party, girls staying up late talking (causing other girls to not be able to sleep), church decorating, pictures, trading shoes with another bridesmaid, walking down the aisle. You know, standard stuff.
Fast forward a few years and I’m getting ready to move to San Diego. The above bride contacts me to inform me of another of her friends, also moving to San Diego. She suggested we room together. Why not? This friend of the bride’s also happened to be one the bridesmaids from the wedding. Oh no, hopefully doesn’t think I was the annoying one. If we hate each other, it’s only a six month lease, right?
Well, I ended up not being the annoying one. I was one of the talking girls, irritating our favorite blogger and causing her to not sleep. Funny story, I’m also the bridesmaid that switched shoes with Charity because mine were too big and hers were too small. That’s right folks, it’s the roommate here. This blog post has been HACKED!
All the rules are out the window (for any that know me in real life, this is no surprise). Grammar? I mean I’ll try, but meh. (I almost guarantee Charity will edit this if she doesn’t remove it.) Funny anecdote, followed by struggle, followed by God vs my struggle, followed by wrapping up the post all neat and tidy? Not happening (minus the funny anecdote, cuz I already wrote it). Using a list with bulleted points for multiple thoughts under the same category? Uh-uh. Using capital letters to PROCLAIM MY EXCITEMENT BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO DIE TOO YOUNG FROM OVERUSE OF EXCLAMATION POINTS? Heavens, no!
This post, dear readers, is all about the nitty gritty. A Charity Tell-All, if you will. Let’s get started, shall we? Read More
