Friends….

30 10 2012

Usually when you hear the word friends you think of the iconic 90’s TV show. It’s been on late night TV a lot so my roommate and I watch it. It’s amazing how even on a TV show how the idea of having a group of ‘best friends’ is something everybody strives for.  Having friends.  In the show, no matter what happens they always forgive each other and come back as friends.  It makes conflict look easy. The very term friends or friendship brings a smile to most peoples faces.  Friends are something a lot of people depend on for advice, companionship, and just having someone to laugh at things that appear in this crazy journey we are all on called life.

Facebook redefined the way we look at friendship.  Now you can easily have 1,000 “friends” but how many of those people do you actually know? How many of those people have you sat down with and had a nice conversation that wasn’t comments or over Facebook chat? How many friends if they needed help would you actually go help? or are they just a random person on your friends list? How many of us get so wrapped up in updating our little online lives that we forget to have a real life outside of it?

I find that most people are very okay with shallow friendships.  Just the surface, see each other at school and go about my day friendships.  That’s okay I guess… but I really don’t understand that.  Maybe because I’m the type of person to want deep relationships with people.  I’ve realized that that is one of my problems is that when that doesn’t happen with EVERYBODY somehow I take it personally.  I’m realizing that no one has the time or the energy for that.  You will have deep relationships with people.  It may be a few people over your lifetime, or maybe it is many people over your lifetime.  The question is, what do you do with what is given to you? We all impact the people around us in bigger ways than I think any of us will ever comprehend.

The original intent of this post was going to be about how we all need to pursue those deeper friendships, but since then I’ve changed my mind.  I think we just need to be aware of the people in our lives and not take them for granted.  Time is short and you never know when something will happen and you won’t have later.  How many people have I taken for granted here at school and they were gone in the next semester with very little advanced warning.  For all the people that say they have no one to talk to, how do you know if you won’t try? We all are surrounded by people and most of us are waiting for the other person to speak up.  It probably won’t happen so take the first step.  Say hi to the girl sitting next to you in class.  Say hi to the guy on the bus.  Just try and see what happens.  Who knows, they could be your next movie buddy, or best friend.

P.S. I love you

It’s the name of the movie i am currently watching. I like it but i think it is more of a movie meant for older women, not young ones like myself. Although there is one quote in this movie that made me want to cry.
“You know the worst thing for a parent… second after losing a child? Watching your child head for the same life you had. You can’t stop it. It’s a terrible, helpless feeling. Makes you angry all the time.”
I don’t have a child that I feel this way about, I’m just pretty sure this is the way my mom feels about some things. It really makes me kind of understand her better.Yesterday I watched Penelope and that was a really cute movie. I loved James McAvoy’s character. Watch the movie and see what I mean!

Friday, Terrah and Laura invited me to come with them to Terrah’s apartment. That was fun! First we went to her house so I got to meet her mom, and brothers. Then we went on to Stephenville, and saw Tarleton State University and her apartment. The plan was to go to a guys house and they wanted to dress me up, which I am fine with. They did so and I think they did a really good job! My hair is still straight so I really dont want to wash it… but I really need to shower. Maybe I’ll try my hand at straightening and see what happens. Anyway, the thing at the guys house involved drinking games. I did become the designated driver, although I didnt think they were that drunk.

I am deleting my facebook. They wont actually delete your facebook right away, it gets deactivated for two weeks and then deleted. Why am I doing this? I’m just wasting my life away on it and I really don’t need one. And I’d love to be one of those people who can boast that they don’t have one. Also I used it to get praise from people. I knew if I posted the right things people would say encouraging words and stuff. Which is fine, unless you are doing it for the praise of men. Plus I kinda used it to look at what other people were doing to get gossip and judge them…

Some songs I am loving.
Tinie Tempah – Wonderman
Diddy Dirty Money – Your Love
Adam Lambert – Mad World





Videos…

26 09 2010

…are really a pain. I now know that THIS is why I do not video blog. I was considering it but really? after this junk? No. Way. Unless I got my own camera. http://www.theflip.com/en-us/ One of those little cute cameras. OOH! I could ask for one for Christmas, but then I’d need rechargeable batteries… and a battery charger. I should go for it, that way it gives me something to actually ask for Christmas. If I actually got one then I would have to carry around my phone, Ipod and Camera. That’s a handful. I guess I also need pants with bigger pockets, like guy pants. Girl pants never have big enough pockets. They can hold chapstick, credit/id cards but that’s about it.

Wow………… just wow. I accidentally clicked on the facebook logo while on the upload page. Yes I lost all of that upload. I know it is taking forever because this is facebook’s primetime for people. But COME ON! I’m through with facebook right now. I am currently trying to upload it to Google documents now and i’ll facebook again later.

My brain is going through a technology overload. This is how I feel after writing papers. Music has been blaring in my ears and I have been checking facebook notifications over and over and over…no new emails. Waiting and waiting. Why can’t I just upload it later? Good question I am glad you asked. I had to return the video camera today. Right now the file is on the library computer. When I log out all files will be deleted. Pretty cool huh? Not if I still haven’t uploaded it anywhere. It’s too big to upload to email, Youtube takes forever [if it takes 24 hours than try again], and facebook…well, let’s not talk about facebook.

What have I been listening to? Newsboys and Thousand Foot Krutch. They always make me smile. I really haven’t been on this computer THAT long. I am really just hungry and ready to get off. I think I left the practice room at 2:13 and got here at 2:20. It is currently 6:07. That is almost four hours. I guess that is a long time. I have a CA informational meeting at seven tonight. I don’t have to go but I want to. I want to work as a CA. How hard can it be? I pretty much did it at home anyway. The hardest part would probably be restraining myself from running my floormate’s lives.

“Dude! Getting drunk is bad for you!”
“YOU AREN’T MY @#$%IN MOTHER!”
“I’m your CA so it’s the same thing!”
“NO IT’S NOT!” *pukes because she is super drunk*

I doubt I would be THAT bad as a CA. That is why I am really looking forward to 4-H camp. They actually have rules that I can enforce like a dress code [the girls will hate me for this], the swearing rules, booze and smokes rule. I will sooo have fun with this! I want to be a good counselor like Ross. All the stupid guys hated him. I really really hope Arturo works at 4-H camp again because then we get to work together. He was really really really really cool and I haven’t seen him since SpecTra last year.

YESSSS IT UPLOADED! I did have a couple people staring at me. I didn’t yell, I just forget about how loud you dont seem when you are wearing headphones.

I feel like I haven’t been talking about a lot of stuff at all in my blogposts, but I don’t know where to begin. What do you guys want to hear about? Say it and it’s yours…
