I wish someone would have told me just how ridiculously hard it is to make friends in the real world. You spend 16 years in school, an environment where you see the same people day after day that it seems like you spend no time or effort making friends. Then when you get out you just have no clue that out of a school setting making friends drops exponentially, and if you work from home the friend making is pretty much nonexistent.
Will and I live in a pretty small city and will be moving to an even smaller town, once we finish building the house, and I don't see making friends being very easy once that happens. I think that's really one of the reasons why I started blogging. I love the idea of being able to meet new people through blogs, and getting to connect with all sorts of new people that you might have not otherwise have gotten to meet. And I absolutely love hearing about how other people have made such great friends with people over the internet. I also get a little jealous that I am just so horribly awkward at anything that involves trying to make friends, or even meeting new people, that I just completely mess up any chance I might have had to make friends in person or through blogs.
It's kind of embarrassing to say I have tried to start up a conversation with a couple of bloggers who seem to have similar tastes to my own, but I'm pretty sure I just came off even more awkward in written form that I do in person. And who am I kidding that won't ever change, I don't think any amount of practice I could do could save me from myself. Oh well, such is life I guess.
At least I do have some of those wonderful friends that I met in high school and college still, even if they do live all over the place, le boo. And thankfully Will and I do travel back to Phoenix enough that I am able to fill up on some wonderful quality in person friend time. I guess I should just quit my bitchin and be happy that I do have some friends, and that they are really some of the best people I know.
Hope everyone is having a good Monday.
