I've been seeing a lot more of my family lately, for which I'm very thankful. Not too long ago, I was lucky to see any of 'em once a month... simply because all of 'em are as busy as I am. Times have changed... and though I'm not quite sure why, I ain't knockin' it. I've also been spending a lot of time with a number of my close friends, including my martial arts buddy Dan who just turned 21 three hours ago. He's one of my closest friends ever. I called his cellular phone (which he always leaves off) and for some reason, it was on... and he actually answered it, too!
That didn't exactly go as planned, being that I woke him up. Ah well... instead of being able to leave him a "Good morning, dude... and happy birthday!" type voice mail, I wound up wishing it to him while he was half awake. No good deed goes unpunished. XD In other news, yet more birthdays have creeped up on me today. Looks like I missed Shaz's birthday yesterday... doh! Then again, I probably wouldn't have even known about it if it hadn't been for Kou-sama anyhow. Kou, you're always so good about stuff like birthdays and such. :)
Shaz is a really hilarious guy... I don't think I've gone through a single entry he's made without laughing at least once to myself, if not out loud. Then again, I'm easily amused... but that's really not the point. He's one of those guys who... yeah, you know the type... never added me back as a friend. Eventually I gave up and wound up taking him off my friends list as well, which is why I didn't get the notice about his birthday. I don't know why, because it really shouldn't... but it really bothers me when people I get along with don't add me back. He doesn't know me well, though... so I understand, but he did seem like he intended to. This sure seems like a waste of space, yet... oh, I dunno. For all I know, he just forgot.
I probably just care too much about what other people think of me. I shouldn't be so hung up on wanting other people to like me, yet at times it seems extremely important to me for no good reason at all. Why do I think about this so much...?
