August 4, 2004

Tonight I spoke with someone that I hadn't talked to in a while. I was happy before I talked to this person - that I have never actually even met. Now I am reminded of how difficult it is to meet someone that you are not only compatible with, but that you actually enjoy spending time with and are actually attracted to. It is amazing how someone you don't even know can completely change your mood for the rest of the night.

Now that I am in this mood, I am, of course, also thinking about friends. In high school, I had all different types of friends. There were only a few that I spent a great amount of time with and the ones I enjoyed the most were probably all of a certain type- or we at least enjoyed doing similar things. The same in college. My friends in college were different from my friends in high school and my friends in grad school were different from my friends in college (even though it was the same school and even though some friends overlapped time periods). But all my friends I felt ... I don't know... complete with. Now, I miss the type of friends I used to have. The type of friends who would get together in a big group and just play cards in the local coffee shop, or sit at a friend's house around Christmas time and just talk and laugh. I love my friends that I have here, in my post-college life. But they are different. They care about, and enjoy doing, completely different things than my old friends. This is not a bad thing, just different. I have met only one person since I moved here that I really fit with. I hope I meet some more like him.Obviously, I am missing something...

PS: For those who often ask- I am currently reading The Stand and listening to CDs of Atlas Shrugged...
