Here's to a new focus!

I did it again. I think we all do from time to time. But I am slowly submerging from falling into self-pity and forgetting better priorities. I got so lost in feeling like I had no friends and getting upset over friends blowing me off and feeling like everyone was too busy for me.

So here's to simply not caring as much.

Here's to focusing on people who show me that they love me: my boyfriend, my parents, etc.

Here's to working on me and becoming the woman I know I can be.

Here's to focusing on school work.

Here's to making new friends who appreciate me.

Tomorrow I am off to run some errands and see my neighbors. They are 12-year-old twin boys who are like my brothers. They make me smile and I can't wait to hang out with them. Then I'll hang with my parents for the second night in a row. I don't care who thinks that is lame, but not being at home has made me enjoy hanging out with them when I come over.

Also, I wanted to thank my blogger friends. Even though we can't hang out face-to-face, I still feel like you are my friends. Through your kind words and from reading your lovely blogs, I feel somewhat connected to you all. :)

  3. Yeah, sometimes caring too much can pose a problem :/ It's hard not to care though, especially when you're a compassionate and caring kind of person. Blargh. Keep a positive attitude though, and I'm sure things will look up soon (:
