After my brother’s death, earlier this week, I have received a huge amount of love from friends that I’ve lost touch with over the years. After highschool I moved out of town for university. I was living on campus for a few years, did some traveling, and just recently got settled (but I’m moving again at the end of this month!). Throughout all that, my friends were contained within a handy little website and I could check up on their status’s, photos, and leave 20 word phrases on their wall.
Let’s be honest for a moment, I am a total nerd. I know this, and I’m okay with it. I love sitting in my room playing video games. I love walking outside at 9pm, after not seeing the day. I do however wonder sometimes if I had kept in touch with people a these years then we wouldn’t just be coming together to mourn my brother’s death.
I’ve also had an old friend pass away a few months ago, and I was re-united with everyone I partied with under a bridge and at Murkwood. In those day’s I was known as Mrs. Sparkle and my bff was Mrs. Southren Comfort. Our boys were Mr. Sprakle and Shaggy. The last time I had seen my friend who passed, JessicA, it was New Years Eve, 2009. I still can’t believe she is gone, and my heart pours out to Tish and their family.
There’s a party next Saturday that is at Tish’s place. It’s an Old English and Growers gathering. Apparently if you show up with something else… you are going to be shunned! 😛 I will be sure to bring a 2L Growers and hide something that tastes a bit better in my coffee cup! There’s no way I can willingly drink that stuff!
I think it’s necessary for me to get out of my little bedroom and spend time with my friends! … but not to worry, I will be online all the time anyways cause I’m totally addicted to gaming 😉
Today so far, I’ve played some Rockband 2. I love that game. I love singing and having a full band with DLC. I got so frustrated with the quickplay that I almost gave up. Thankfully I didn’t because the last band I found actually had loads of songs! I’ve made 2 new friends too.
I am in dire need to get a hold of Rockband3 though. I was almost resorting to purchasing more Lips songs because I need something new! I didn’t buy Lips, rather I got Halo Wars, Wet, and BioShock2. But sadly those games are just not filling my aching need for Rockband3.
The countdown is on.
The day will come soon.
♫♫♫ I Will Rock ♫♫♫
…sigh… and off to kill some zombies on Left 4 Dead 2.
