Maybe I should update more.|
We'll see. I'd like to say I've turned over a new leaf so to speak, or have begun to in any case; things such as these take time. I've realized I have a good amount of friends on here, and even more so on the socio-abomination that is MySpace (don't get me wrong, I love the thing; it's like the boyfriend that abuses you, but you keep going back to. "He promised it was the last time," you'd say, but I digress). I've come to a lot of conclusions recently, say over the last month or two, and it's made me wonder how many of these "friends" are genuine, or by another token, how many wish to be. I've tried to bridge gaps between myself and certain people, and I've realized there is more distant than I initially thought there was between certain others: I have a hard time watching people close to me be so self destructive, poor friend as this might make me. I believe I regret this, but not to a fault. Sometimes my efforts were just plain in vain, yet I know in the past that others' efforts toward me were similarly in vain; for this reason, I fault no one. In all honesty I sometimes just wish I knew the motives of some, as sometimes things seem nonsensical or just plain rude, but again, I don't fault anyone for this as each person's motives were their own. Regardless as to all this, I'd like to try and be a better friend, in the sense of more involvement, to anyone interested. If you have no interest in this, then you should ask yourself why I'm on your friends list to begin with. This isn't meant as a low blow, or a cheap shot, I'm posing a serious inquiry as it wouldn't seem logical; maybe now is the time to stop pretending, eh? I'm not entirely convinced this post will get many comments, or change many minds. I know everyone has a lot on their plates, but this is something that has been eating at me for some time, some new beginning of sorts. Just for the record, I have no hard feelings toward anyone
On a totally unrelated note, I pose a question to you all, those who would have read this far. Today, and yesterday at that, felt amazing. It was perhaps the coolest day, this side of the end of summer, thus far. It makes me wonder though, being familiar with certain sciences more so than others, what causes this? Of course it's the tilt of the Earth, and the fact that throughout the year we get farther and farther from the sun, but I find it hard to believe that one day could make such a dramatic difference. As though we tilted just so to dramatically change the temperature an entire ten or so degrees or more; I say this under the assumption that the Earth is spinning constantly, otherwise my query is invalid. Does this make sense? Being as the Earth is spinning at a constant rate, how would the temperature change not be constant as well. If anyone has any insight to this, now is your time to shine.
I hope everyone is well.
