Within Seconds

Dear Journal,

As I woke up yesterday morning, I looked outside my apartment window to see that it finally feel’s like fall. The crisp cold air … the leaves fading to a golden brown … and of course Christmas tree’s at Costco.

We’re moving (again) at my job and this time they said it would be our “permanent” location. So I was sitting at my cube the other day when an email arrives from my Lead.

I excitedly scan it because I read the Subject Line … it said we were moving next month and there was a preliminary seating chart. I quickly turn around to tell my co-worker who also checks his email.

He skims through it as well and zooms out of our cube before I could turn around. I knew he wanted to see the chart as much as I did.

“Oh .. she’s talking on the phone”, he said sadly. We started walking back to our cube when we hear her hang up. We quickly go back to ask for the seating chart when within seconds 4 other people came bustling in to see it as well.

It was oddly funny to see all of us huddled around this one piece of paper … after about a minute, we made copies for each other.

My co-worker and I started talking about our “Cube Neighbors” … wondering how large our cube would be … and the nearby restaurants we could go and eat at.

How stupid that we get excited about the littlest things in life.

On a more personal side note … I celebrated my buddy’s birthday yesterday. We didn’t really do much, just had dinner with him, his girlfriend, and another friend. I didn’t really go all out this year because he didn’t want anything big.

So we kept it small and quiet this year … I usually write something personal to him on this birthday card. But I didn’t know what to say to him this year, hopefully he knows where he stands in my life.

There’s this guy I used to know and his birthday is next week. I text him last night asking if he could meet me, so I could give him a birthday card. He hasn’t replied back, either he doesn’t check the number I used or he got rid of it.

Either way, at least I finally know where I stand with him.

No matter what I do, it seems like it never works out with anyone. It’s just a matter of time before it ends and I have to start all over again.

It’s my curse … he was right all along.

    Moving can always be difficult, even if it’s a small move. Did you try leaving a voice message for your buddy? He might respond better to your voice.

    Yeah it is … a hassle too since most of us have tons of paper we’ve collected over the past months.

    It’s also kind of exciting for me too .. something new .. a change of pace.

    I was really thinking of calling him … but thought it would be awkward since we haven’t spoken for ages. Have you ever had that feeling before?

    Where you don’t see/talk to a friend for such a long time, that when you finally do … it doesn’t feel natural.

    And both of us end up not really talking since we’ve got accustomed to it. Maybe it’s just me.

Quotes Of The Day

- "In the end, every relationship needs maintenance …Whether it’s the smallest gesture …or just picking up back where you left off. The bottom line is that if you care about someone, it’s pretty easy to make the sacrifice."
