Oh hello there, it's been awhile ♥

Wow I sure haven't blogged in what seems like awhile. (Trying to update more regularly!) Not that I haven't been in the blogging scene following my lovely blogger friends and reading their posts, but I guess you could say I'm in what you could call.. a blogger's rut. I haven't had the inspiration or motivation really, to put a post up. Maybe I should complete the blog challenges. So here goes. Day 10. A confession. I am sometimes a little jealous of not being as close as other girls are with a group of girls. (It really doesn't bug me most of the time.) Not that I don't have a group of girlfriends. I do have girlfriends I'm really close to, however.. we don't exactly make time, or put in that extra effort to spend time together. Bottom line is - we lack girl time. And if we did hang out, it'd be once in a while; on the basis of shopping, boy talk, etc. It's completely understandable that we all have busy schedules, school and work to worry/stress about, and it conflicts with our time that we have available. Something I believe the girls as a group as trying to work on. Don't get me wrong. I have mad love for my girls. Always.

But as I get older, I definitely see my core group of friends growing smaller. And for the most part - they're guys. Not saying it's a bad thing. I just happen to get along with guys better. Drama free, less complicated, chill - for the most part. We make time for each other. I think that's the big difference. Some people think friendships come easy. It's never a one way street. Time is precious, and I believe that it is best spent on people I love and care about the most. Quality over quantity people :)

On a similar note, I still remember blogging about this topic eons ago. Whether I associate myself with too many guy friends. That was 4 years ago. On Xanga. Still the same scenario 4 years later. Haha I guess some things never change.

Some short updates on January happenings:

1. My birthday! Much love to everyone who came out, and for celebrating such a special day with Shauna and I. Great drinks, great company, and a fantabulous cake made by the very lovely Fiona. Shoutout to Terracotta for hosting such an awesome party!

2. Catching up with friends who went abroad. Kim is finally back from the land down under. So glad she's home. I've missed my future roomie. Our convos are always a gong show.

3. Vancouver 2010 Olympic festivities. It was time to relive it. And it was awesome. The weather was a bit of a downer, but it was fun nonetheless. Good eats, epic memories, (not to mention a rather embarrassing one on my part..) and like always - the best company I could ask for.

That was my January in a nutshell. How was yours?

Wow new layout!

Guys are just easier to hang out with sometimes. However, sometimes only girls can give you the type of support and encouragement you need.

I know exactly what you mean-since I left high school almost...5 years ago (can't believe it's been so long) my group of friends has definitely gotten smaller. I didn't really make any friends at UBC that weren't international students and have now moved back home. BCIT is better, but still a few of my friends there are planning on leaving Vancouver (they're small-towners who dislike the city).

I've always been jealous of people who have that ONE BFF that they can do EVERYTHING with. I don't have that, and I've never really had that. I have lots of friends, but there will always be only certain things I do/talk about with them. I guess I've never really found that person who was like that for me!

And guy friends are good to have-I only have a couple, but I always go to them for advice because they're a lot more level headed and honest than most of my GFs.

Wow, I rambled a lot haha! But I'm going through the exact same thing now!

Hey Megan!

It's good to know that someone feels the same way that I do!! :) I love the city, but at times I think I need to escape to the country side or be in nature to relax haha.

Aw don't worry I don't really have just ONE bff. It's hard to just say I have one cus my friends are awesome and I feel so blessed to have them in my life. I'm sure you'll find your core group of close friends that you can do absolutely everything and anything with :)

& Yes guys are def better at advices, because they're super straight up. Girls tend to sugarcoat a lot of things to not hurt the other person's feelings haha. But it's all good, friends are friends :)

Thanks for reading girl! x
