"Someone must be making your day."
I looked up from my phone and to the gentleman who was patiently waiting for his coffee as well.
"You’re smiling pretty big."
"Oh," I laughed. "My boyfriend is going to take tomorrow off instead of Friday and was telling me about it."
It’s not that this text rendered any significance, but it’s just an example of how much I perk up and still become giddy over simple texts from Alaska (Ben). I’m not going to go into all that mushy cliche of happiness that a significant other can bring, because I’ve always been a happy person. With Ben, I’ve reached a state of calmness and ease. For once, I feel like I’m not trying and that he’s in this with me just because I’m being me.
Everything in my life finally seems centered except for the whole finding a “career” aspect, but that’s going to sort itself out eventually.
