There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Point to contemplate on, to self:

I befriend too many people and as a result lose contact with too many of these people. I don't feel a part of people's lives as intricately as I used to, due to spreading myself out too much, and when I feel I shouldn't talk to some people (as I don't think they'd like to chat to me at the time) it makes the gulf larger. In the end, people I used to be really good friends with disappear, and sometimes I feel glad for it, because it stops me from having to try to begin uncomfortable checking up on what's happened in their world since the last time we spoke, and all that.

I'm talking about me in the past towards way too many people.

I have to stop and take stock when I see people on my AIM list who I've never contacted, or whose names I don't even know. Likewise for LJ, there are people whose names I don't even know or I barely know anything of them.

If you want my body
and you think I'm sexy
Quiet, I don't want to know

I know exactly what you mean. I have lost contact with so many people I used to be friends with back home before moving to where I am, and at times it makes me sad because a certain part of my life is now over. But then I realize I'm supposed to be moving on, but it always seems I would rather be back with them not having to make the effort to make new friends, but then I really don't want to be back in that place either. So what can you do when you seem to be lost in the middle of two places, and don't know which way to turn?

Social stuff is hard. IRL, it's never been an issue for me, because I've never had many friends. Online is another matter, though. I do feel bad about not keeping in touch with certain people, but I know from experience that were I to say Hi or something, the conversation would peter out before long. Perhaps that's just me, though.

I know I don't IM you much (And not least because you're away about 80% of the time), but I do like talking to you. I'm not sure why I don't. I guess I've always felt like I'd be imposing, or something. You've always seemed like much more of a social person than me, so I always imagine you having 4 IMs open at a time.

Uh, point being, I'll say Hello more, in future. Aren't you glad?

I'm only away 80% of the time because I sleep or work for 80% of the day.
