Yikes! Over half a year since I blogged anything. I keep telling myself that I’m going to be more active with my site, but it never seems to work out that way. ^^;;;
Quite a bit has happened since my last post.
Something negative? One of my friends--who used to be single--used to talk to me a lot about how she was seeing everyone else dating but her, and how she didn’t like it because then she felt like things were “different” between her non-single friends versus single friends.
She even complained to me one time about how she got mad at one of her other friends…because she kept asking him if he’s free to hang out…but he couldn’t really find the time since he was so busy with work and being newly married. And she’s emphasized the importance of not forgetting about your friends and making time for them, even though you’re dating or married. Multiple times.
Well, guess what? She has a boyfriend now! She’s been dating him for about a month. He seems pretty nice, from what she’s told me. So I’m happy for her. My best wishes to her and her boyfriend, of course. But I think it’s rather hypocritical that she finds it perfectly OKAY for her to forget about her friends now that she has her very own boyfriend. o_O;
When I hung out with her recently, she told me she was “sorry” that she takes so long to contact me back, but “you know, now that (she) has a boyfriend…” Because I’m apparently supposed to forget all that crap she spewed earlier when she was single? I think that’s a little ridiculous.
On a plus side, I took a group of students on a summer trip to Japan. I’ve been to Japan a few times on my own, but this was my first time organizing a trip for a group. Given that, there were DEFINITELY some bumps along the way. ^^;
But overall, the trip was a nice success! We went to Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Tokyo. I think the first few days was a little rough because the students were getting used to the time change. Plus all the walking around that we did. But overall, everyone had a lot of fun…bought A LOT of stuff…and some of my students are even asking me when I’m going to do the next “Japan trip.” *laughs*
So in the end, I think it was all worth it. I’m looking forward to revising the trip to make it better. I’ll probably organize the next one in a couple years. I gotta save up some money again!
I always hated how people could get with boyfriends. In a way I get what your friend was saying. I had a friend once who would just pay attention to her boyfriend and stuff and it was very hurtful. That said rather ironic that she goes and does the same. >_>
Sounds like the trip was a success! How awesome that some even want to do it again!
A girl I went to college with was like your friend. She complained about everyone "ditching" her to hangout with their boyfriend (she really just wanted them to hangout all the time) and then she got a boyfriend and stopped talking to everyone. It's so annoying! Hopefully your friend sees how hypocritical she's being!
You're so lucky getting to go to Japan! Sounds like a good trip, even if the beginning was a little rough. It sounds like a really cool place to go!
You know what, one thing I realize is that, when your friend got into a relationship, it's always the friends who adjust and doesn't have the right to demand time unless otherwise that friend exerts effort. I've been in a situation like that and use to rant and being jealous over such a matter like i'm being forgotten and all~ In a way, i just realize that that's the way it goes if having that situation~ There's only 2 types of those people: One can manage to make time and one cannot have time because case to case basis if you know what i mean XD
In that sense, she literally ate up all her words spewing nonsense when she was single and now she's having a relationship, she's literally became what she just said XD and that's funny XD
Anyways, it's not that they forgot your friendship, it's just that you're not the priority anymore and we don't want to complicate things like they might end up breaking up (shit happens like that) no, we don't wanna be involve with that~ Let's just be thankful, even in a chat they can reply or say hi and hello with you :D
