I'm contemplating the fact that, when it comes to friends, we almost ALWAYS take things for granted.

Sometimes you see them everyday, and that makes it seem that it's okay to not want to see them for a little while. The funny thing is, a certain time comes when all you want to do is just see these people again, the group as a whole, and that is the time when everything goes wrong.

A is getting married, so everyone else from B to Z is getting excited, planning what to wear from head to tippy-toe. Then as the day looms nearer, C has exams. D has to go back to studying in a far off place. H isn't sure if she can make it. *sigh*

It's a good thing, that these days, getting an internet connection is fairly easy, relatively cheap. We still get to know the goings-on in everyone's life, even though you can't exactly give them a hug and scream whenever you see them.

I'm wondering if there will ever come a time when we all get together again, with absolutely no one MIA.

It's unbelievably hard work to get everyone together in one place, believe me, I've tried.

But then again, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Cliche, I know, but that's why it's so overused, because it's true. Seeing Debbie for only a few hours after YEARS (I think since we left high school), was so enjoyable. Everything was laced with happiness. The drinks tasted sweeter, the food tastier. Even the hordes of people walking about Sungei Wang that day didn't irritate me as much. =)

So... To friends (Blaikeys, I give you special mention here =D), if you are reading this, know that even though we might not be able to see each other as much as we want, if at all, years and distance don't mean anything.

You are friends, hence you are loved.
