Let me start with a quote from the movie Forrest Gump, starred by Tom Hanks.
“Life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get.”
I like to consider this as my total description of how I dealt with my friends and got to keep them for quite sometime now. Each of them is so wrapped up in their own individuality that normally you get tangled, enjoy the maze, feel it, elaborate on things and or just talk anything under the sun. It was an investment to keep a tight circle running for a number of years now. Surely, I’ll have someone to come to whenever I go road tripping and am confident I’ll never run out of them.(I don’t have a car of my own, but I like taking the bus. Very liberating.)
I have been thinking that my seemed introvert state or worse my anti-social tendencies have to do with my social life. Psyching myself, I would stick to accepting that I am an introvert but not the latter. I have gained friends across my entire walks but I am keeping with what I am having now. They are more pliant. I am smirking at this description of them. The kind of relationship we shared as friends comes stretching way back our high school days, carefree and vibrant, holding up a neon sign flashing of life-as-we-know-it attitude. I enjoyed every ounce of our happy and gray moments and am still enjoying it up to this point.
Settling for some wines and spirits, and or just soda plus bags of chips, we can set things straight or spend the company away with our usual rituals; storytelling and musings about life and all that jazz.
This face picture collage of mine was made by my twin sister from another mother, Chiqui, which we hereby agreed upon to this very moment that we are twins from now on.
This is her 2013 birthday message for me together with that picture above, posted on Facebook. I am strikingly proud to share this. I appreciate this a lot, sis.
