Paige and I go waaaay back to roughly junior high. She and I shared classes, studied together, cursed our inept Physics teacher, hung out, and basically were very good friends. She’s one of the few friends from high school I kept in contact with after college life took over, and later, when I moved back to L.A. and she was at UCLA, we re-upped our friendship.
Paige is as easy to hang out with and just relax as she is to have long conversations with. She’s fun, passionate about life (she’s over touring Europe right now, in fact!), and generally a joy to be around.
It is possible that my enjoyment of coffee today is in part to sitting and sipping with Paige in coffeeshops. If so, I regret nothing!
