A sign of hope?

It's the follow up blog after my admittance-to-failure blog!

So it's the final week of school and I'm ready to go home. Again. I went home for Thanksgiving and spend some time with my mom, dad, and friends. It's always nice going home during the holidays when all (or just a large amount) my friends are back home too. I don't really have a large circle of friends in Austin, so going back home is always nice because I have a group of friends ready to receive me.

I usually say I don't have the time or interest for new friends. Well, that's actually very true. But more than that I think it's cause I'm uncomfortable around people because I don't feel like I'm on the same page with the majority of the people that I meet. In these situations, I usually feel like one person is going to end up offending the other. So there's no reason to invest myself. Every now and then though I'll meet someone who I don't mind telling them everything about myself and those are the friends who are beyond the superficial surface of friends.

Anyway, the reason I brought that up is cause I've been feeling pretty lonely the past few months. For several reasons, but mostly because of the lack of girl friends in my life. Most of my friends are guys and although it isn't a bad thing I would love to have a few female comrades here in Austin. I made a small effort this semester to make that possible, but I think it's safe to call this semester an absolute failure.

So next semester I will have at least one more girl friend! Call it my New Year's Resolution. Along with the traditional I'm-gonna-quit-biting-my-nails resolution -I have terribly low expectations for the latter. Hopefully my girl friend goal won't have a follow up admittance-to-failure blog.


So December 5th, Home Slice is having a pizza eating competition. The winner gets free pizza for a year. I would immediately jump into it if it weren't for the fact that I'm going to the beach in a few weeks. Hmmm. Time to think.

Thanksgiving '09 and the Lies

So first about Thanksgiving. Happy Turkey Day to all! My sister, Malsi, is missing from the table today cause she's still in Indiana. Kind of a bummer, but s'ok. She'll be back and enjoying leftovers soon.

Alright, about the lies. I know I said I was actually going to keep up with this blog... and we all know that didn't happen. I should have never said I was going to keep up with it. I KNEW I was lying. I didn't even believe myself when I wrote that entry, but so many self-help books tell you to lie to yourself until you believe it and it's true so I really can't be held accountable. I've been brainwashed with books such as "Seven Habits of Highly Effective ______", "Who Moved My Cheese?", and so forth. My dad picked out some winners for Malsi and me.

Okay back to the Thanksgiving action. Hope you're all having a great day.
