we are all in this together

Still no update on the format of my blog. I haven't had the time or the patience lately to sit down and try to figure all that stuff out. Anyway, the reason I decided to write this entry is that something occurred to me recently. I realized while some of us were out at Brother's on Friday that I have a lot of what I would call "hey-how-ya-doin?" friends. These are people that I've had classes with or have been introduced to through friends or whatever. I know them well enough and feel comfortable enough to say "hey, how ya doin?" if I see them on the street or at a bar or restaurant, but not much better than that. If I did attempt to carry on a conversation, it would probably last about a minute. When I look back over my college career so far - which is very tempting to do now that I just have a year left - the thing I regret the most is that there are so many people who I've met that I never took the time to get to know better. I've come across a lot of interesting people who I wish I'd gotten to know on a more intimate basis than "hey, how ya doin?" Why this hasn't happened, I don't really know. I think I have a tendency to keep to myself a lot when I'm put in social situations alone. People who know me know that I talk a lot. A lot. But when I'm somewhere by myself without anyone I'm really comfortable talking to, I tend to be very reserved. As my classes are getting smaller and smaller I'm starting to see the same people in a lot of my classes. It's kind of weird when I'm in classes with people for multiple semesters or I'm in multiple classe with someone during the same semester and yet I never really get to know them. I guess you could say it's a goal for me to start to actually get to know people in my classes and not depend on friends to introduce me to all my new friends. I know it's late in the game, but as the cliche goes, better late than never.
