Well, this isn’t going well. No new blog entry in eleven days? Hmm.
So! I’m going to post an excerpt of something I posted on LiveJournal this morning. Hey, the LJ entry was almost 600 words, which is a lot more effort than I usually put in1, so I felt I should share. Plus it’s too hot to write two original posts in one day!
I went to a farewell party for R, a friend from high school who’s moving to Canberra to attend the ANU. Here, I saw about forty people from high school who I hadn’t seen since I left (over a year ago), including a bunch of squealing bitches I thought I’d got away from. But also, some cool people who I actually liked.
No-one from high school has really changed. Those who had no job then, don’t have one now, and those who didn’t even have their Learner’s Permit? Still don’t. It’s kind of disappointing — for me, people who actually bother with getting ~*Life Skills*~ are way attractive. People with no ambition, less so.
I’ve never really missed high school, nor the people there, despite the fact that the only people I interact with from it are those who I see at uni, or have seen once or twice at a birthday party or on the train (such as R, who works at Officeworks not too far from my uni). From what I can tell from invitation lists on Facebook, they haven’t really made many new friends either. I guess I’m different in that my group of friends seems to get recycled every few years. It’s an organic process, though — I’m not all “you guys are totally boring now. I’m making new friends” — it just happens, apart from a select few who stick around. I think for once in my life, I’m actually satisfied with all the friends I’ve made through uni, work, online endeavours, etc., though.
