Well, that was very nice. Do all of us have trouble looking for true friends, ones that you can hang out with everyday?
Probably I am naive. Honestly, I thought I was the only one who faced problems in doing so, simply because I am not the outgoing or friendly type to start with. I am sure there are not a lot of people like me out there, though. As it is, I walk to classes alone. I have daily meals alone. Suffice to say, I do a lot of things alone, having only myself for company. Others walk in groups to lectures, complete with silly banters, slapping the backs of each other for good measure – or gather at the food courts to meet up daily for lunch. But hey – I have actually commented on this quite a number of times. It does not come across as complaints, really – because as time goes by, I have become numb and indifferent towards that matter. It is almost as natural as breathing. Heave in, heave out. Day by day. But having to be relied upon every week, if not everyday, is getting a bit too tiring for me.
Which is probably why – as some of you might put it – I did not choose my friends carefully, simply because I did not see the reason to do so. They seem to come and go as they like. I would enjoy their company at whenever impromptu times there may be, and I hope they would, too.
I guess I have no one else to blame but myself, and that is that. Someday I really should stop being a whiner. I have been doing that a lot, lately.
Call me silly, but the new year’s readings seem a bit more optimistic for my horoscope be it Chinese or Western, and I look forward to that, hoping all things go well eventually.
Would you like to join me in awaiting the day when everything will be alright? If it ever comes, that is.
In other matters: With all the recent hullaballoo concerning Mariah Carey’s concert on February 22nd, we may have indirectly overlooked another one of the top US acts stopping by the country this year.
Incubus will be performing in Kuala Lumpur on March 16th, skipping Singapore for Malaysia (source: here).
I do not know why, but I am beginning to see various ridiculous reasons to hog the headlines next. But let us not stop them, or any other potential musicians for that matter, from coming here, eh?
On air now: Train Wreck, Sarah McLachlan
