Loosing touch…

16 Jan

I don’t know if everyone has this problem after they leave a large cultural environment like school, but I’m finding it very difficult to keep in touch with people that I considered to be good friends of mine. It has nothing to do with me not being interested in them anymore, or that I don’t have time to keep up with them. I think it might stem from not having common happenings to discuss with those people. Being in completely separate worlds now, its hard to find a spark that can initiate a good conversation when I don’t see someone very much.

I don’t have anyone that I hang out with socially anymore. Everyone I used to do that kind of thing with is either back at RIT, off at grad school, or otherwise moved on with their lives. I always have had difficulty starting relationships of any kind, and moving back home after graduating from college means that I’m starting all over again. I’d very much like to keep in contact with everyone I know from school, but its been difficult.

There’s no real reason for not remaining in touch with whoever I want to. It would only be a matter of writing an email, typing an IM, or picking up the phone. I don’t think its completely a matter of me of me being lazy. Some of my problem is a nagging feeling that people won’t really want to hear from me, or that I’ll be bothering them somehow. After all, I have no real reason to call them other than just wanting to see how they’re doing, and to remind them that I care.

    Hey man, with the exception of when I’m not here (which is hard to tell by my ambiguous away messages…) I’m usually free to talk. And chances are I probably need some sort of tech committee help to boot anywho. o:

    Seriously though, you wouldn’t be bothering me if you call or IM me or whatnot. I mean, your site has it’s own little button thingy on the top bar of Firefox, I check it along with the web comic sites and the myCourses site. 😛

    Also, my girlfriend says that my site needs a re-design because it’s current one sucks. Even though I like it, mostly because I made it myself. All hand written code. So like, any ideas on a new design that I’d be able to handle? 😀

    I’d have to say that Mouse could use some improvements with his very sucky website. I don’t really know you except that I had a brief convo with you but I feel the same way sometimes with people who I was good friends with back in high school. You can bother Mouse anytime you want ;).

    You don’t have to worry about bugging people, at least not me. I would welcome the distraction, plus I wonder about you too. I’m not always willing to put myself out there though, you know? I’ve definitely lost touch with high school friends in four years, but for the most part I don’t regret that.
