Why is it so hard sometimes to see friends and be sociable?
I have spent this weekend alone. I contacted my friends (like everyone I guess, I have a few separate groups of friends) but all of them were either busy or just didn't bother to text me back.
I have got in touch with a few old friends on Facebook, but everyone just seems to talk about how great it would be to go out and do something but no one can commit to a date.
I know that people have their own lives and that I shouldn't expect too much from people as it can't always be like the TV where a big kooky gang of buddies can always be relied upon to be sitting in the coffee shop waiting for you, but surely an actual day or night out rather than just talking about it isn't too much to ask?
I know it's not going to have a simple answer, but I'm feeling really fracked off. I'm supposed to meet a friend tonight...but I'm just waiting for him to cancel. I'm not a pessimist but I bet that's what's going to happen.
I've sent messages to people asking how they are and what they're up to, in the hopes that something will come of it.
Am I coming on too strong? Or am I expecting too much. I've always thought of myself as a friendly, approachable person, but now I just feel like I've been swept under the rug and forgotten about.
Go to Glasgow at least once in your life and have a roll and square sliced sausage and a cup of tea. When you feel the tea coursing over your spice-singed tongue, you'll know what I mean when I say:
'It's good to be alive!'"
