What's up? Hope everyone is doing alright.
I really don't have much to talk about. Sunday was my mom's birthday! So after church, where I saw like a jillion old middle school buddies (well more like 4 actually), we went to lunch. My little sister, she actually used to be a member on here too (shippo323 if any of you guys remember that from way back in the day), is applying for boarding school this year. Pretty much the whole lunch conversation revolved around that.
My family is really big on good grades. For most of my sisters, it's no big deal. Shippo323 though had this huge math issue for the past 2 years until she finally decided to drop down a level in math. But that time she spent in the higher class brought down her GPA a lot so all the boarding school's are going to see that.
And to top it all off, she's a social butterfly. Friends with everyone, ready and willing to get into all that nonsense middle school drama and whatnot. Don't get me wrong, it's good to have close friends, but I think once you get past 20 close friends, you've gone too far.
All of last year, she was partying and not studying and when I would tell her, she would just shrug it off as me trying to "bring down her fun." Now she's stressing about getting into boarding school and even trying to get me to write her admissions essays -__-
If only she had listened to the voice of reason...
Anyway, back to my own drama. Well I was watching... don't laugh boy meets world today (if you don't know that show... all I can say is wow. It was a 90s classic. You missed out) and the episode in a nutshell was about losing friends. and in the past year, as a lot of you may know, since I spend most of my time away at boarding school instead of home, I've lost a lot of friends.
At one point, I got into the mentality of contacting them when i got back in town and leaving it in their hands, thinking I "shouldn't have to fight to keep my friends". But I realized something from that dumb little 90s sitcom. If they're you're good friends, you should be willing to fight. We had some good times back in the day (well, more like a year ago) and it sucks that we haven't really gotten to reconnect.
From now on i'm going to take the initiative. It's kinda late at night though, so I guess it'll have to wait until tomorrow. A phone call never killed anyone.
Too bad I didn't realize this until a week before i have to leave!
Anyway, there's Vanessa's life lesson of the week: friends are important!
I think I may be watching too much sitcoms these days...
[ edit ]
Now I feel like I'm contradicting myself... saying my sister's stupid for being too into the whole friend thing and then thinking I'm stupid for not XD
Wow, how life can be confusing.
