My life is full of ups and downs, in most aspects of my life such as my education and my health I am very very blessed. However there is one aspect of my life that no matter what I do I am always unlucky and cursed, my social life, more specifically my long distance social life. I have been away from all my hometown friends for 6 years. In order to effectively keep in touch with them, I created a social network so that we can all keep in touch and have fun regardless of distance. To make the network more fun, I have planned and scheduled special events from chats to gaming tournaments. Between 2003 and present day I have scheduled over 21 unique events for my network, out of these 21 events how many were a success? ZERO. All 21 scheduled events blew up and backfired right in my face, some due to circumstances beyond my control and some that nobody showed up. I also had other events and some extremely special events that I wanted to schedule, but as always they also backfired since something always got in the way. Between 2003 and now I have not had a single successful event for my network and my social life with my hometown friends is on the verge of collapse. The network I made is the only efficient way for me to keep in touch with my hometown friends because I am not the most social person on the earth. Also because of all the failed events, most if not all of which are not my fault, I am now convinced that my hometown friends either do not trust me or they think I am boring. I do not know what to do anymore. As the leader of my network, I just plain suck.
