Here we go again
I keep doing this, promising to be more frequent but then I didn't want to; primarily because all those promises were to myself. None of my friends would read this blog if I didn't force them to and if I'm writing to myself ; what's the point really? Idealists would say that the best audience is yourself, but I'm not one of those. I look for appreciation from outside and when I don't get it, it brings me down a bit.
This lack of writing material is especially obvious now; now that I have a great forum to bring forth my points of view...
In this one year; my whole world has literally been turned around. I have gotten a job in a newspaper that I've loved for as long as I could remember and I've been given the responsibility of an entire page where I write about society events; celebrities and assorted funnies. Do I love it? Abso-Fucking-Lutely as Mr Big in Sex and the City would say.
So in conclusion, I have a pretty good job, a pretty great guy, obedient parents and my health but being me means never being quite content. Right now my biggest gripe is not having friends; real true friends, people you can call at 4 in the morning because you can't fall asleep, people who'll be there for you if you ever just don't wanna go home till late one night; if you just have to watch a movie today.
No I'm not being selfish, I'd be there for them too. I'm the kind of person who'd go to the ends of the earth for a friend and I'm not trying to show off about this. I wish I really wasn't like this; I wish I was like all the assorted people I've met who think meeting up once a month for coffee is the ultimate friendly gesture.
And it's not like these awesome, mind-numbing friendships don't exist, they just don't happen to me. And I'm pretty convinced it's my fault, just wish I knew what to do...

    It's sad you don't realize that you have friends who though might not be available for a quick chat at 4 am, but are always there to drag you out of troubles and difficult times...even at 3 in the morning. I refrained from commenting for long, but guess just cud not control. Anyways, even though you may not know now, but love you girl. eisha

about me
My Photo
Location: Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

It is only in my 30s that I have realised I will never be the elegant lady who can wear white without spilling something on it. I recognise my blessings like my family, my friends & my job & I am letting go of my fears of writing & just jumping in. I love my job. It has given me the opportunity to live in a city where I am surrounded by the most amazing friends in the world & the most surreal experiences. It also gives me the opportunity to read great books & travel to fascinating new countries. Join me as I share these with the world.
