We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.

There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound. ~Diana Cortes

Those are probably by far my 2 favorite quotes that I have found in a long time.  The others I have put on fb are good and I really like too, but this one just seems to fit so much.  I wanted to repost it again.  Enjoy.

P.S.  I can’t seem to make the font larger, sorry.

Seriousness…a look into an insecurity

It’s a good thing lots of times.  Although I fear sometimes I am too serious.  I see how much fun my friends are, and sometimes I think I take away from that cuz I don’t get things right away, or I don’t really understand how to keep the joke going.  I find myself trying to just watch, listen and/or observe people (especially my friends).  Maybe if I can figure out how to be more fun, I’ll be more enjoyable to be around.  Not that I don’t think I’m fun at all, but I feel I could be more fun.  Now I know my friends like me for who I am.  They wouldn’t continue talking to me if they didn’t.  But I see the randomness that all my friends seem to have.  I feel drawn to these types of people instead of people who seem as serious as me.  I am certainly glad they accept me that way though.  I cherish each of my friends fun uniqueness.  Even if I can’t come close to being as fun as my friends, I am so appreciative that they don’t just say to go find people like me.  I think I would be kinda bored otherwise.  Also I don’t think I am completely boring, but I probably have a drier sense of humor.  Also if I were around more serious people, they wouldn’t understand or appreciate when I at least attempt at the randomness of humor.  I enjoy all the humor and jokes my friends share with me.  It’s certainly something I could never replicate on my own.  And if anyone was wondering what brought this on, it was reading my friends different posts.  I laugh and giggle at them and at the view each of these things is looked at from.  Then I glance back at myself and think I need to try looking at things from different views although I am not sure how.  So I greatly appreciate my friends at these times I realize this about myself because they at least cause me to realize this.  Maybe at times like this it also lets me let go of a tiny part of my seriousness cuz I realize I need a different view sometimes.  Maybe I am too harsh on myself, but I tend to be critical of myself as well.  I try and take things with a grain of salt (not sure why that phrase every really caught on, seems there should be a better phrase, but it’s what I’m choosing at this time), but I think I will try to end this now, before I ramble on too much and repeat myself.  Hehe  But thanks to all my friends who appreciate me even in my mostly serious times.  ^_^  I appreciate it more than can be described. 


K, so I wanted to vent about this before going to work.  I just heard that apparently my work isn’t putting up the Christmas tree this year because of political correctness.  I say screw that.  I mean really?!?  Any holiday that is trying to spread cheer, whether it be Christmas, Haunnakah (sp?), Kwanza, or any other related holiday should be fine.  Big deal if it’s a different ‘religion’.  I just think it’s stupid.  It’s a holiday season that should be celebrated no mater the specific beliefs.  I know last year we were told to just say ‘Happy Holidays’, which nothing wrong with that, but they didn’t want us saying ‘Merry Christmas’ so we wouldn’t offend anyone.  If someone said happy or merry (insert holiday of choice here) I wouldn’t be offended.  I would just figure that’s what they celebrate.  And good for them too!  People should be happy to celebrate things, hence, celebrating… So while I may occasionally say Happy Holidays, I will most definitely happily say Merry Christmas most of the time since that is what I celebrate, and I hope people say something back to me based on what they celebrate.

Ok, that was my rant before work.  ^_^  Hope you enjoyed this.

O man, 1st Blog type thing

Hehe  My first blog.  I’ve never really been a blogger but it will be fun to see what turns up here, and what I get inspired from by my friends.  ^_^ 

Speaking of friends, I love all my close friends very much.  They each are very special to me.  And that includes my WoW friends of course.  I don’t know what I would do without them.  Even our non WoW time is amazing.  Hehe
