Something about talking to long lost friends

I wouldn’t say we’re friends? It does fall under the category of Someone I Used To Know though.

I suppose it’s still a relationship of sorts even if it does feel… a little peculiar. The week’s been a little muddy and I have to say, the universe never fails to surprise me with her aptly-timed quirky gifts.

I’m glad you’re still alive.

Day 010

The most amazing thing in the world right now: having someone I know accidentally stumble upon the article over at Little Slices about freelancing and telling me things like, “Oh my God! That article sounds like it really came from you!!! I totally read it in your voice haha!”

Totally feeling the love! Makes up for all the raging suck I got thrown into yesterday.

I had loads of fun with that back when… I was traveling. And meeting people. OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT EVEN LIKE ANYMORE.

Day 008

I previously entertained the idea of creating themes/templates and naming them after people I know and respect. It was to be an inspired piece of sorts, and as a way to say, “Hey, thanks for being part of my life and I appreciate you!”

As it turns out, the longer you dawdle, the sinking realization of how much everyone has changed (some for the utter worse) starts to set in. Kinda like what it feels like to see the cement harden around your ankles right before you’re tossed of a bridge into a river of unknown depths below.

I’ve now come to loathe 80% of the people I used admire.

I guess the lesson here is to just make it anyway, in hopes that whatever you made preserved the very best and brightest bits of your relationship with said person.

I feel like this is very applicable to baby names as well. I am thankful all I’m naming is a cat or two. Maybe three.

Day 002

Saw a cluster (well, to be precise, just two) of morning glories growing by the side of the drain amidst an entire sea of bedraggled weeds that’ve seen better days.

I’m starting the year off right: stories from around the world, places to inevitably visit, and friends to share them all with!

I legitimately have no idea what brought this on. Talk about getting justed by yourself. BRB going through all the images on my phone.
