It's an.... odd time.

So many posts that I have been concocting in my head over the last week. I must tell you my dream, for example, that had a random cast of stars. I want to tell you all about the lie I told the lady last night regarding the computer that I just may end up paying karma for. I want to tell you about my hilarious Spanish teacher and how I'm convinced that all my instructors hate me this quarter. I want to tell you how the quarter is going so far, otherwise.

But I'm sleepy. I'm all filled up with friendship love and chinese potluck, so instead, I shall plead with you all, once again, to fill out my text messaging poll. So many numbers that I still don't have.

I feel silly saying that my purse was stolen, because as it was stolen on the very first night that I was carrying a new purse, and since it was too small to fit my wallet, I feel like I'm parading around with the purse everyone's seen me carry for the last year plus my beat up wallet plus my bank card and i.d. The only thing that has changed is that I have a new phone, so I sheepishly think that people are thinking "Schyeah, right. Drama queen."

But yes. Gimme your digits. And if you have already done so and didn't get my mass text about the computers today (or heard from me recently at all), that means that I hadn't been able to get your numbers into my phone before the innernets died.

I'm still amazed, a bit, at how much my friends circle has changed since I stopped drinking. Well, not completely stopped drinking, just stopped going out into drinking settings. At least now, I don't (usually) feel socially awkward around the people I hang out with and that I need to drink heavily and FAST in order to feel humane and comfortable enough to hang.

I completely relate to the drinking thing. I found that over time I lost my gumption to go to parties etc the way that I used to, I never felt good about it afterwards. Then I realized it was because I wasn't naturally comfortable in those settings, and neither are most of the people there! So now I have much more fun. Drunken small talk is lame ;)

You're totally right. Part of me wishes that some of the people i DID enjoy hanging out with at those things would join me on the "dark side", but they have to come to that point in their lives themselves. I have noticed that my circle of friends expands ever so slightly whenever a group of them start feeling like they're totally done with that scene. Granted, it shrinks again, too, whenever there are people that I get together with who realize we really have nothing in common except the alcohol.

Tee hee. I don't think that anyone even SAW my new purse, as it went across the shoulders so that I don't have to actively hold it, and I generally end up wearing them under my jacket.

Ah, well. I promise it really did! Honest to Betsy!

Hmmm about the drinking, picky subject for me. Had to quit 5 years ago due to problems with my stomach (which derived in me having surgery almost a year ago). Then right after I had surgery I returned to the world of alcohol >__<

But yeah at that time I could not drink it was weird hanging out with everyone else beside me wasted, though I managed to get used to that and kept on going to the same places with the same people.

Dunno I guess the alternative of making new friends was worse lol I fail at socializing ^^"
