as i have said before…one of the hardest things about moving is the people you leave behind. as much as you want to talk to them as much as you did when you lived in the same town sometimes you can’t. i am lucky that i have some of the best friends in the world. they are friends that i have had for years and it seems like there is no amount of space or time that can hinder that friendship. one of the greatest things about great/true/real friends is that if 5 minutes or 5 weeks goes by the conversation picks right back up and you don’t have to worry about hurt feelings because there was space. you don’t have to worry that they are mad because they haven’t called you and you know that they aren’t wondering if you are mad at them because you haven’t had contact. i am so lucky (and frankly blessed) that i have friends like that.
this past wednesday i was able to talk to carol! when i got home from work she was on facebook so we chatted a minute when she was like can you talk because i am alone and have 10 minutes to myself. i called and even though we haven’t talked in person or on the phone since around Christmas it was nice to hear her voice and catch back up. she was telling me about q-man’s ambulance ride to the hospital and about all the sickness that has been going around. we talked about work, husbands, family, the weather…basically our life stories up since the last time we talked. when the car pulled up i knew she had to go finish dinner and so we jumped off the phone almost as quickly as we jumped on it. no hard feelings because of the short call – just an understanding that life sometimes does that. there is no point in being upset at it because if we were we wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the time we did get to talk. **side note** pray for little man to get to feeling better and that the last 6 weeks of school go great for her.
as soon as i hung up the phone from talking to her katie called. i was so excited to tell her that we would be able to be at her graduation in a few weeks and that it would be great to see everyone! we talked for a while and it was almost like old times when we would talk about everything and nothing all at the same time. it was a little depressing when we both vocalized that we aren’t as young as we once were…but that is another story for another day (can you tell i don’t want to celebrate my birthday this year….or ever again….nothing seems appealing to being 29). we need to try to get a pretty weekend for her and chris to come back and visit!
one of the fun things about moving away is meeting new people and making new friends…
(for protection of certain people i will change names and not give too much background information – in other words excuse the vagueness).
there is a person i know that drives me crazy (not a favorite of mine at all) and they know someone – we shall call this person APF (annoying persons friend). i always wrote off APF because of who they associated with because i didn’t have time for that annoying person and knew if i was APF’s friend i would have to deal with the other (and honestly because i thought that if APF was the annoying person’s friend they wouldn’t be much better). following me yet? anyways annoying person was mean to APF and after a while i decided to go out on a limb and contact APF and say i am sorry but annoying person is stupid. we talked through email and i couldn’t help but think that this person is actually really cool and really nice and i would have reached out earlier had i known. we have emailed back and forth and it has been eye-opening. it is a reminder to not judge someone by who they associate with (because they could be not annoying at all).
i will admit that i get attached to certain tv shows. i know that the characters aren’t real and that the people playing them are acting.
let me state again that i know that the shows i watch are make believe…
but…i love them. i love the shows that i watch and the characters and the writing on the shows which makes the characters become my friends! i get so invested in their fake lives and i get so invested in the shows that sometimes i think wow – we could be friends they are so cool. i think that is the difference in good show writing and bad show writing: when you love or sometimes hate a character but you feel so invested and full of emotion towards that character you have done a good job. so let me tell you about some of my “friends”
revenge – i still love this show. we are almost done for the season but it has been a wonderfully evil show. i love emily and am torn between what she should do about telling jack the truth or not. i am torn about her relationship with aiden and i am torn with if i like victoria or not. some days i think she just needs a hug. if you haven’t watched it you have to see it from season 1. it makes me think i am more sneaky then i am and that i could be vengeful if i wanted to be.
ncis – i love ncis. i mean really love ncis. i mean i feel like i know the characters so much that i could pack a bag and go to work with them and fit right in. i love all of the characters on the show and am scared because ziva could be off the show next season. two more weeks and the show will be over until next fall. i love how they play with the viewers emotions when it comes to the relationship of tony and ziva and i love that gibbs is the father figure of the office and that abby is crazy and that mcgee is raw-ly human (is that a word?) and ducky is oblivious to other people and their time tables. i feel sad when the credits roll after the hour of watching it. i want them to come back and answer my questions.
i still watch ncis la, castle, and bones but i don’t feel as connected with the characters or story lines so i don’t get sad when i miss an episode.
rookie blue returns may 23rd (my summer show) and i am so excited i can barely sleep – ok i lied i can sleep but i really love my bed and it is so comfortable – but i am really excited to see what they do this season. i can’t wait to see my “friends” and see what they have been up to.
i am willing to share my friends if you are bored you should check them out!
