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?
