I never thought I'd say this... especially this close to the holidays... but I'm actually happy
No one thing in particular changed things for me. And I still miss Arizona badly. There are some nights where I miss her so badly I cry myself to sleep. Not having Zola or my mom to go to makes it worse.
But in general? I'm happy. I'm not drinking myself into emotional submission anymore, I'm not moping and sulking. I'm enjoying my job, I'm having a blast in the studio, I'm getting closer than ever to Kate (which, btw, I need to talk to you asap, kiddo), and I've got possibly the beginning of something special with Tifa happening.
You never forget or get over your OTL. I know that. But dammit... I'm not gonna let the thing I don't have stop me from enjoying what I do
have. Not anymore.
