Old Friends

I love getting together with old friends. You just pick up from where you left off and it’s like those months of not seeing each other didn’t really happen.

I met up with Em, Mika, and Stephie over the weekend to eat unhealthy food (sorry, Em!) and catch up. Would you believe me if I told you I met all of them on the Internet? Because I kind of did. (:

If you read my sidebar, you’ll know that I’ve had a site since 1997 and I’ve been blogging (manually before Blogger, haha!) since then, too. My friends didn’t understand why I had a site or why I had all these friends online. “What do you talk about? Isn’t it weird?” were some of their questions. I don’t remember what I told them. To be honest, I think these people I would talk with everyday, these people who read my thoughts through LiveJournal, knew more about me than my friends who I’d see once a week. It doesn’t seem strange at all now that we’ve crossed the line from talking to each other through screens to actually talking to each other face-to-face.

Which is not to say I don’t love my friends—the ones I’ve known even before I owned a computer much less knew anything about the Net. I do! But all I’m saying is I don’t have offline and online friends. They’re all… well, friends.

Anyway, the point is—if I ever had a point—it was great getting together with them, laughing about the same things, talking about what’s been going on, updating each other about any progress in anyone’s life, and then making plans to do it again. I super enjoyed and can’t wait ’til the next time!
