Have A Nerdy Weekend!

23 Sep

In addition to the many hours of Chinese homework I need to do this weekend, I also still need to finish unpacking and organizing our flat in time for our house guests next week. But what kind of weekend would it be without a little fun? So, I’ll be attending my friend’s “Revenge Of The Nerds” party tomorrow. I’ve got to come up with an outfit in 24 hours, which shouldn’t be too hard since my boyfriend owns a few Star Wars / Star Trek t-shirts as well as a FULL storm trooper outfit. xx

Ode To Friends: Past, Present & Future

3 Jun

{via}

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with – Jim Rohn

 

Merriam-Webster defines a friend as the following:

1friend

noun \ˈfrend\

Definition of FRIEND

 

1     a  :  one attached to another by affection or esteem
       b  :  acquaintance
2     a  :  one that is not hostile
       b  :  one that is of the same nation, party, or group
3     :  one that favors or promotes something (as a charity)
4     :  a favored companion
 
 
What Merriam-Webster doesn’t tell you about (true) friends is:
 
  • These people will sincerely impress you when you’re not looking. No, seriously. If you really give them the chance, you will be amazed at what you find. Trust me.
  • They’ll unintentionally challenge you to grow bigger than you thought possible. Their differing viewpoints will challenge you to go beyond your borders.
  • They’ll be there when you need it, not when you want it. Because if you want it, you can probably solve it by yourself. But when you need it, they’ll just know.

(…and the list goes on and on and on…)

 

To The Point Please…

I guess what I’m trying to say is that my friends are absolutely incredible creatures; each & every one of them. Even the ones that no longer reside on the path that I’m on… and that’s okay, because even though they’re not present in my life anymore, it doesn’t mean they’re not still present in my heart (with very fond memories). That, coupled with the presence of love in my heart for the friends that do still reside in my life along with the ones that I know are on their way, has enraptured me into such a state of humility, appreciation & bliss that I could quite honestly burst into tears of joy.

They have all contributed (some with blood, sweat, tears & much frustration) to making me into the person I am today and no amount of thank yous will ever scratch the surface of expressing how blessed I feel to share a friendship with them.
