Invasion of the sister & BFF

As strange as it may be, my sister and I share a best friend. They’ve been friends since the ripe old age of three, and I have since adopted her BFF into my close circle. One of my favorite things about living alone is that I don’t have to coordinate around roommates when my sister and best friend come to visit from out of town. This is important for a number of reasons:

  1. We are LOUD when we are in the same location and haven’t seen each other in a few months.
  2. We stay up long past the time when considerate people should go to bed. Case in point: we once decided to laugh and talk all night long and didn’t fall asleep until 7 a.m.
  3. Horror movies are our favorite movies…mostly because my best friend has been known to scream starting with the movie trailers, and we find it absolutely hysterical.
  4. Their bags tend to explode. Within seconds of landing in my apartment the zippers of their suitcases unleash a unique level of chaos rarely seen in my apartment when I’m by myself. Their stuff is EVERYWHERE. It moves from room to room with reckless abandon until I can no longer see my floor.

Needless to say, my last week has been a flurry of preparations and homework in order to prepare for their arrival. As an INFJ I may enjoy my alone time, but these are MY PEOPLE and I am so excited. I can be myself with them — they know me. I don’t have to pretend, and that is just so damn comforting.
