hello, friend.

I always want to be a writer. I have been in love with books since as long as I could remember. My dad is a book freak, he could spend his day rolling in his couch with book on his hand.
But turns out writing is not as easy as that. I tried it several times, got stuck, and stopped. You just had those hundreds idea in your mind, but didn't know to start, didn't know how to beautify it, and there you are, you just stop trying. And I'm thinking about starting over. Better late than nothing, right?

Well, things happened a lot lately. And this issue just couldn't get out of my mind. Lets start with a question, how do you see yourself as a friend?

I am a conventional-kind-of-friend, I could say. I got stuck with people I'm comfortable with. And I'm not those kind of people who get a new friend easily. It took me months to get people I'm really get along with. Sometimes I wonder how could people easily socialize with each other. I just don't get it. I prefer to be alone in my room, with books or movies to accompany me. I love being in the crowd, but not as a part of them. I don't mind being in the middle of conversation, but I actually don't like to be the one who brings up the topic. Forgive my unsocial way of life, anyway.

But people grow up. Meeting new people is such a unavoidable thing in life. And when my friend got their new acquaintances, I just hate it they would be busy with their new one. Strange, but yes that's me. I prefer to call myself unique.

Unanswered bbms, unread emails, hanged up calls. They're just busy. Trust me, I've been there.

When you're in a situation like that, what will you do? A book I read taught me a really good thing:
"A friend doesn't have to say a lot. A friend does."
When they're busy, I'm tying to show them that I am a friend. No matter how busy they are. I still am.
