Because Of My Grace
Gillian and I have been talking via email. Recently we have been talking about true friends. The only twist on this is that I’m talking about true online friends.
I hate how this sort of thing always leads to me as a busy person. But I don’t get much time to visit people’s sites and keep in touch, since responding to comments takes me a long time. The wonderful friends I’ve met online keep in touch with me through ways other than commenting. They follow me on Twitter, add me on MSN, and send me emails.
If I receive an email or my online friends talk to me on MSN, it keeps me on the ball; we keep in touch like real friends. I have met people online through becoming affiliates, and sometimes, people delete affiliates when they don’t keep in touch.
I don’t understand this. I have developed friendships online through this, and I’m sure other people have – but the moment someone is drowning in exams or has things to deal with – the other party takes this as some sort of pejorative gradual distancing from that person.
Dude. Just because your “affiliate” has a lot of exams and troubles going on – it doesn’t mean you can just delete them and cut off all ties with them just because they might not even have the time to notify you personally.
Writing this situation out into an experience of mine: Someone deleted me from their affiliates. They didn’t care to tell me either (obviously I found out myself), and stated that “you were deleted if we didn’t talk”. May I be excused? I was the one who visited them when they never responded to my comments and questions. I was the one who initiated conversation when they didn’t talk to me.
Define affiliate. /ho
Yesterday I bought some things to send to Laura and Tiffany! ♥️ Expect a plushie in the mail, guys. :B
In the morning I idiotically forgot my wallet. My mum was annoyed because she would have to make another trip to the station. :( When I got home, I started to run to my room to get my wallet so I could get out as soon as possible again. I slipped on the plastic runner that runs across our lounge room, and fell on the hard floor in the kitchen. 😢
I hit my forearm and knee, and it really hurt! That will teach me not to wear slippery shoes with little heels. /bash I’m expecting some big bruises. 😰
I didn’t eat breakfast yesterday so after our lecture, Ryan, Vicky and I went to get breakfast. Funny how we all didn’t really eat our first main meal. Vicky had chocolate milk and chips. LOL. As for me, I chose a cheap packet of instant noodles. We went to the student lounge and Vicky pointed out the tea room where I could get hot water. Mmm those noodles were yummy. And not bad for $2.40. /drool
