Ridiculously Epic…

Right and wrong are just words. What matters is what we do

Surrealism a la Living

on February 7, 2011

For 3 of the past 4 years I have lived with not only an awesome person, but one of my best friends. We started living together our senior year of college without really knowing each other. I joined a sorority and we were acquaintances. We went to dinner one night as a group and ordered the same exact thing, and from then on it was a running joke that we were the same person because our first name is Jessica and we ordered the same meal. We found out other things we had in common, and then it was time to pick roommates. Since we were the same person I asked her if she wanted to room together. So we lived together our Senior year of college, then she moved to Wyoming for a year for an internship, and she was back in Ohio for a few months before I talked her into moving to Cleveland and into an apartment with me. That was almost 2 years ago.

I’m sure that there are days that she just wants to push me off the balcony, or maybe just punch me in the face…but I have absolutely loved living with her. In college, and in our “adult” life.

A couple months ago Ernest and I mentioned in passing that my lease is up in May and that he graduates in May and that is incredibly convenient. Then we mentioned that it was so convenient in terms of living, maybe we should live together? Then it turned into “Why the hell not?” and started looking at apartments online.  Now it’s forreals…we have an appointment to look at a place on Saturday.

I’m really sad about not living with Jess. It’s kind of surreal; not living with Jess. She’s probably the best roommate anyone could ever ask for. Not only does she love to clean and cook, but she’s my best friend. It’s tons of fun to hang out, talk, watch movies, go shopping, cook, whatever… I know that Ernest and I were serious about moving together – but it seemed so far off that I didn’t think about the fact that I won’t be living with Jess, and now that Ernest and I are actually going to look at places it’s becoming more real – in a good way. I am really excited about taking this step with Ernest. It’s kind of a big deal, and it’s, well, awesome. Our relationship is pretty ridiculously awesome, I don’t think I’ve ever been happier. And I know that living with Ernest is going to be just as awesome, maybe even more, as living with Jess.

But I will miss her.

(No offense Ernest.)
