Every morning, around 6:15 AM, my radio station reads a daily horoscope for all its listeners. As I’m putting on my makeup, I listen in for four specific signs: Aries, Leo, Virgo and Scorpio. Aries, for my boyfriend; Leo, for my best friend; Virgo, for myself; and Scorpio for Jennifer.

When I am not sure of what to blog, I like to Google grief survey, and see if there are any interesting new studies done, or in the process of being completed, on grief. I came across Grief: A Brief Survey, for a student who is collecting research for a paper they are writing. I really like their questions, and want to help them on their assignment. Plus, I think answering questions on my own behalf helps me to undestand my feelings and thoughts better.
Below, are all my responses without me holding anything back:

Thursday was Jennifer’s birthday, her 20th birthday, and the 2nd year we celebrated without her. I opted to go to work, and did my best to not dwell on the circumstances of the day. I got teary-eyed at some points, but I didn’t let it consume me. I even wore my pink confidence shirt to work as a little extra niff-love.

Yup. That is how long my Nanny lived to. She passed away on February 23rd at 94 years old. Can you even believe that? She was born in 1916, and lived a long, full life.

Wait, what? That’s all? It feels like it was yesterday. No, wait. I lied. It seems like eons ago. Three months? Seriously? wtf?
How can something feel like it was so long ago, but feel like yesterday at the same time? I don’t know how that is even possible, and I’m pretty sure there is a law of physics I’m breaking, but that is how I feel.
