I, too, aspire to embody The Essence of Alicia Florrick. I try and channel her into my daily legalbusinesscasualerringonthebussinessside look.

Reminded me of Pretty Little Liars...the greatest of the female friendship/murder mystery/not mystery/every man is suspicious/beautifully ridiculous teen soaps.
@Topf I value friendship so much more than I value work. But here I am, at work.
Related, I have somewhat conflicted feelings about reaching out to people, or being reached out to after a long time. A couple weeks ago I got an email from an old college friend, who basically dropped all her college friends upon graduating to form new 'adult' friends or something, and I felt SO WEIRD ABOUT IT. The friendship ended so abruptly, so apparently I was still sore about it after 5 years? It was also a very one-sided email, like --oh I was thinking about how amazing my college friendships were, hope yall are well--and didn't invite response. I guess I felt that my bubble was poked through by nostalgia, but not in a constructive way? BUT, sometimes I want to reach out to old friends too! So i feel conflicted. I dunno. It's hard.

are you A???
@ru_ri I stopped doing my bottom lashes when I realized that they contributed to raccoon eyes more often than not. Although I do do them when I want to feel extra sassy.
Hello, Struggle. I have friends. Some I would call my soulmates, some I can call upon at any point in life. But since making the move from one coast to another I don't have the casual daily contact that I still crave. I've been in a new city for about 6 months, and I have friends I see every once in a while, but I don't have that day-to-day friendship, and I MISS IT. Rationally, I know we don't just stop making friends. Maybe I'm not trying hard enough. I DON'T KNOW. I can usually not think about this too much, but there are days when it hits and just ughhhhh. Also, I have a partner I'm perfectly happy and joyously in love with, but that's not the same as (for me, female) friendship. I'm rambling but this is such an important thing to talk about so here we are.
@Lady Humungus I'm on the Lancome Hypnose train (along w/ KimK I think!!) and refuse to get off.
