    Friends come and go. I always thought "maybe

    your friends, but never mine." But I was wrong, I've lost so many friends in the past year. But I've also gained new ones that are just as great as they were. It's just sad because I miss those old friends sometimes but we never talk anymore. So if you become my friend, which is...

    I try to be the best friend I can be to all my

    friends. I try to make everyone's day a little better. Sometimes, though, I feel like maybe I'm annoying or maybe I'm bothering them too much. The last thing I want to do is be annoying or bothersome.

    I take friendships seriously.

    It can however take me time to get to the 'friendship part'. I'm not particularly open and I'm not one to become anyone's BFF at the 'drop of a hat'. I don't ask for too much (email, friendly gesture here and there, basic chat and banter) and I'm not demanding, but the best...

    I guess life is just the way it is supposed to

    be: unpredictable, good, bad, ugly and great all rolled up into one incredibly short experience and sometimes people can hurt you just because they think they're smarter or better than you. We all need a hand every now and then, but most often we don't need a hero to save us: we...

    I really value friendships.

    Treasures and cherish it. But what I hate about friendships is when your friend breaks your trust and didn't realized that he/she is making you go far away from him/her. But I love them despite of that. Ugh. this is getting nowhere. Kfine.

    As the years went by the number became smaller until there were just us few. Then I left. I went to find my own way and in the process I burned down the very same bridge that led me home. Those I used to know are gone and I became addicted to drifting. But no matter what, no...

    This means that I don't waste my time on relationships where someone is pretending to be my friend. It means I have high expectations, of myself, and my friends. It means I don't have many friends: in life, or on EP. I don't need to be close with all my friends. I...
