I Can Tell That We Are Gonna Be Friends

I think for a lot of my life, I've always been a little behind the curve in understanding how the world works, but it would seem I'm pretty caught up right now. Well, as far as I can tell. I still don't get friendships though. There's been so much analysis going on lately, with friends and occurrences acting as little puzzle pieces that can't seem to come to a coherent picture.

It feels like I've lived a life since high school, so how do I reconnect with people who've lived completely separate lives? Do I want to? The easiest answer seems to be that I have [be it on purpose or not] kept in touch with those I wanted to, and those friendships that haven't lasted probably weren't to strong to begin with. But how do reconcile rational thought with emotion, when you realize you still care for these people even if you haven't kept in touch?

I hoped Saturday would provide an answer. Sometimes it was great, sometimes I wanted to slip out the door and get as far away as possible. But then again, I'm a fickle person and not always a people person. In the end, maybe it's just me.

In other news, my messy roommate is moving out Sept 1st [if not earlier], so the search for a roommate begins tomorrow on craigs list. Hopefully this will be a fun and successful journey.
