Friendship…

I made a rather typical comment to a customer service rep today about how I wanted to be a child (or at least a young adult) again…

Where I was wrapped tightly in the security of all that was hearth and home…

Where the responsibilities were those of others, not mine…

Where “work” was something you did to have some spending money for the weekend, not to pay bills with…

Where relationships were only as complicated as who you held hands with, not who you or your partner slept with…

Where you could stay in bed all weekend, yet miraculously your clothes were¬† magically washed, ironed, folded and put away…

Where the social interactions for the day were limited to who you saw at school or perhaps were allowed to talk to for 15 minutes each evening… only after homework was finished, dinner eaten and chores done… not where everyone has smart phones, internet, personal computers, twitter, and facebook accounts…

Where family was tight and friends even tighter sometimes not where cut throat, stabbing someone in the back is the only way to get ahead…

Where you were lucky if you had three channels to watch on the floor model, monstrosity of a family television, not where flat screens grace the walls of most young teens…

Where being young meant being young… where at the end of the day it was as simple as that…

Dating these days is a challenge to say the least.  It is extremely difficult to meet someone at work Рmost companies frown on colleagues dating Рplus who has the time to socialize with the ever increasing workload most people have.

A lot of single people are not entirely truthful about themselves… it is, I guess, more interesting to be someone you’re not than someone you have to be on a daily basis. I get that, I really do. If I were to be someone I’m not, if only for a day… I believe I would be this ubber skinny, extremely wealthy, intelligent diva that doesn’t have to work…spending all my time getting my nails and toes done, my hair trimmed, shopping, hanging out all day with my clique, who like me are utterly fabulous…

Then reality sets in… even though it might be nice to fantasize about being someone I’m not… keeping up with the lies and trying to remember what you’ve said to whom…would be thoroughly exhausting. For all those people who are totally more interesting online than they are in person… be yourself. Be true to who you are. The people who truly matter will love the person you are, not the person you want to be…

The Girl That…

I recently met this incredible, outspoken, charming young lady. While attending a dance competition that my niece K was preforming at, her BFF B made the comment that she was weird.

I was like hello, who are you talking to… I have teal hair and teal glasses. Who is the weird one? B was like you’re weird too but its okay, weird is a gift from above.
