As I Cee It

the princess and the knight.

Posted on: April 8, 2013

Once upon a time, a young and social princess lived the life of other princesses her age. She worked by day and played by night and weekend. Then one day, she happened upon someone she knew only by name. Introduced by a friend, they began a no risk relationship that lasted for one month, at which point the princess thought the cost of the relationship too steep.

It was less than a year later that they met again by accident. This time, the princess was not strong enough to resist the knight’s charms. In their time apart, the knight gained more knowledge, was funnier, and could expose her to many things she’d missed, but longed to see. But their relationship became toxic. Before the princess noticed, the knight was controlling her life. Through the winter, they were close and there was no need for either of them to go out. However, even in warm months, the princess spent much of her time with the knight. With her new job, she was able to go home earlier and thought only of the extra time she could spend with the knight. And so it went for months and months. Outings with friends fell to the wayside. Phone calls were a bit more scarce. It seemed nearly impossible to bridge the gap between the princess and her knight and the rest of the world.

Until the princess was informed of the impending departure of a friend to a far away land. The princess mustered the strength to escape the now claustrophobic embrace of the knight, met up with her trusty sidekick, and journeyed out to say her goodbyes. It was during this farewell that the princess realized that her gallant knight and beautiful home had become a prison.

And she vowed she would not continue to let it be so.

Since then, I’ve been indoor rock climbing twice, went to a baseball game, bowling, lunch and dinner with friends, hanging out with family, and I’m doing a 5K this month. All while maintaining a less ridiculous relationship with the knight – Sir Netflix.

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
