Happy New Year!
Tuesday, January 01, 2008
Happy 2008 everyone! I can't believe how the time flies. It's already January, so this pretty much means I'm going to be very behind on my blog postings from now until end of March or even April. So sorry in advance! Anyway, I usually never make formal resolutions, but I do have one for sure this year: to be a better friend.

I know I'm busy all the time, but so is everyone else; and often times I feel like my excuses for not keeping in touch are lame. I'm checking my personal emails less often, and now that I think about it, I'd probably save more time by just picking up the freakin phone. I have first cousins who live around the corner from me, about twenty houses down, who I see once every two months or so. Very sad. I have all these online/blog friends who live across the U.S., some even in Canada, Australia, etc. The closest one to me is Rowena, who lives about 20 minutes away, and gosh, I barely see her (sorry I'm such a bum Wena!).

So that's my wish for 2008. For all of my friends (you know who you are), I just want you to know that even though I don't say it often, I really am thankful to have you as a friend. Even though I don't call, or respond to emails right away, please know that I am still here for you. Time is precious, so let's not waste it.

Alright enough mushy stuff. Speaking of friends, you ever have that one friend who you suspect is only your friend when her other "real friends" aren't around to hang out with her? I've got this friend who I love to death, but with her, it's always a toss up. You never know what mood she might be in, and believe me, you don't wanna be around her when she's crabby. When it's just us (this girl, me, and Natalie), we have a great time, and laugh till we cry. But she's also got this other friend.... and the only way I can describe this other girl... is that she is the "sex and the city" friend. The let's go scope out the hotties in clubs/bars/etc. friend.

Here's the thing: I don't blame my friend for wanting to hang out with this girl in that context, since I don't do any of that clubbing type stuff anymore. But I feel like my friend is just living vicariously through this other girl. Whereas sex and the city (SATC) girl would probably end up having a one night stand, I really believe my friend wouldn't go through with it. But she wants to live that "exciting" type of life and be like her friend. Hey, what she does on her own time with SATC girl is none of my business. But I don't like it when she becomes this totally different person when, on that rare occasion, we all happen to be hanging out together (SATC girl included). It's like I might as well not even be there, she completely ignores me and Natalie. Whatever. I've sorta just come to terms with it, and I don't let it bother me. I think it hurts Natalie a bit more, and that's what makes me sad. Natalie is probably one of the most selfless people I know. Always thinking of others before herself. Nat, if you're reading this, don't let her get to ya okay?

    Sometimes different people unlock different sides of us.. and it just might seem weird when these different people intersect because we've only known one side of them?
