I want to do a happy dance. I FINALLY got the minutes typed from the meeting! I HATE this committee and they use a weird minutes template thingy so anytime I get those done I just want to do a celebratory dance in my little corner of the office. Also, another major accomplishment, I was able to hold my own at a “station” for the orientation tour today. I did stammer over some words when thrown off the speech in my head but over all I didn’t screw up too badly. Win! 🙂
Shameless plug number 2: http://bethcoyleky.wordpress.com. Go check out one of my besties Beth’s blog. You will enjoy it immensely as she is crazy talented and I love her a lot so check it!
So, I need to ask the opinion of the people out there reading this. Do you think that there are certain people you are friends with that when outsiders see you with them they think you are below them?
I ask because this happened to me recently and while me a few months ago would have cried and stress out about it, me now finds it pathetic and a little aggravating. Most of the people I consider my best friends, I’ve only known for a little over 2 years now. Its crazy but I feel so much closer to them then almost anyone I have known longer than that. At the same time, I realize that I am a new addition to their lives and they have friends closer than me and that they’ve known longer. I really get that. I also know I have a habit of devoting a lot of time and love to people that may not feel as much about me as I do about them. What I do NOT understand is little snide comments about how I couldn’t possibly be friends with someone who is an uppity up at our college and this, that, and the other thing OR how it is shocking that my part time job would want to keep me. No, maybe I do not know this individual as much or as well as you. Ok. But they are pretty damn special to me. Maybe they don’t mention me, again fine. No, I wasn’t in any clubs (I had really life things to deal with instead) and no you didn’t see me at any social functions but my friendship is just as valid as yours is.
Any opinions? I know this is a break from what I was determined to blog about but I would really like some feedback on it. What I find funny is that the comment about my job didn’t bug me, it was the shock about us having a mutual and popular friend that I thought was ridiculous.
In an effort to swing the topic back to something happier, I started to listen to the audio book of the Hobbit today. I will be sitting at my desk working on some data entry tomorrow (alllll day) and it keeps me focused more than music does because I am too picky when it comes to music. I am late in the game but GOOD LORD is Tolkien brilliant!!!! I am only 4 chapters in but my imagination has replaced the images from the movie and I am SO excited to read more.
Again, I am sorry for the bit of sadness above but I needed to get it out in print so I could calm down a bit and I would very much appreciate your thoughts.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening and tomorrow.
Much love from me!
