Friend, Acquaintance, Foe, or None of the Above?

Okay, I know I haven't been on here in forever and a day or two. But I just posted this on myspace blog and I thought I'd post it on here as well to see if anyone should have anything to say about it. Just to take in some points of view should any one even read this...



Ya know, I've had this running through my mind lately and I think I shall share it. And if you don't want to hear it...hit the BACK button.

It's funny when you go through life and you make friends with people you enjoy being associated with and actually like spending time with. But then shit happens whether it be...they move, go to different schools, etc...or they just forget about you, they change as a person and either you or they do not want to associate with one another, but whatever the circumstance maybe...shit happens.

I remember walking down the hallways of high school and seeing all the ppl who claimed that they were either my friend or an acquaintance of mine. Today, I hardly hear nor see any of them, except for a select few that actually do stay in touch with me.

So from now on, I pick a choose my friends a particular way, this way I know who my true friends really are...and who are just merely acquaintances who I happen to talk to should I run into or receive a message from them every once in a bright blue moon.

Now, I've tested this theory of mine quite a few times, and it has worked out to show me who my friends are and who my acquaintances are...out of everyone who has my phone number, e-mail, or myspace messaging access...I take time out to not talk to friends just to see who will call or message me...you'd be surprised to see the results of how many ppl actually get in touch with you to see how you are doing and what is up and shit.

Now for myself, I will admit that, as of late, I have been extremely busy with a lot of things happening in my life, and I have not been able to get in touch or see certain ppl who, are in fact, friends of mine. And they know that I have some shit going on, but at least when I get there messages or phone calls, I do return them and I do let them know that, "Hey, sorry I haven't talked to you in a while, I have some shit going on that I have to take care of."

I'm guessing the reasoning behind why I am posting and saying what I am is because there were people that I used to consider some of my best friends...and you can ask anyone who knows me on a personal level that if you are my friend...I will basically give you the shirt off my back if I could, and if I couldn't I find a way. Now, I never see of hear from most of the people and it just angers and saddens me so, because those few people who I do not talk to, makes me think about times that I put myself on the line for them, taken blame for them, and did numerous favors for. Whether the favors would be lending money that I know I'll never see again, chauffeuring them around, getting alcohol from older friends of mine, getting "cereal" for them and making long ass trips to get it (sry, that term is on a "need-to-know" basis), and a ton of other shit.

Alright, I'm gonna quit bitching a moaning before I just continue rambling on about shit that most of you who are going to read this just don't even have to do with this...

drone_dragon: Keep fighting the good fight!

Neh, transitions in life can be tough, especially when you lose contact with really cool people who you considered your good friends. But the good news is: you can always make and find good new friends all over the place, even if they're just daily acquaintances! When I used to go to a community college; I had to force myself to meet new people because I went through 1 year of loneliness there! But the good news is not everyone is ignoring you. That's why I decided to write! Keep being yourself and others will take notice! Good luck with your busy life!

I understand the fact that I can make and find good new friends all over the place, even if they're just daily acquaintances. It just angers me so that I put myself on the line for certain ppl who I thought were gonna be good friends for a long period of time; or if things did change and we weren't close any longer, that at least I would hear from them every once in a while. Just like the other posting that says "Hey, it's Lindsey Toris. I've known her since first grade. We were never *that* close, but we've kept in touch and everything. It just upsets me that the ppl who I did in fact consider very close friends can't even do *that* for me. Anyway, I totally understand where you are coming for and I appreciate your comment. Thanks a lot. :)

The posting wasn't directed towards anyone specificlly, but I do appreciate the fact of you leaving me a comment about it. I too enjoy your e-mails, and yes, things have changed since elementry and middle school. But even though we were never *really* close, it's still cool that at least we do keep in touch through e-mails a what not. Especially since we've known each other since first grade. Sry to cut this short, but I'm tired as hell. Thanks again Lindsay, I'll talk to you soon.
