11:58 am - Trying to get back, baby. Back to where we were.
I've been hearing from lots of places, quite honestly, that I'm just not keeping up my end of the "friendship" bargains I have with lots of people. I haven't been hanging out with them, or relaxing with them, or sending them email. I've been "short" in my responses, sometimes ignored entire emails, and often missed events like parties and dinners that I've tried to get to.

And I wish I could fix it.

But right now, I'm more busy than I've been in a long time. Far, far more busy. Work is harder, and so is play. My research has taken on a life of its own, and I've been sucked into it. I'm at a point now where things like reading Latin are getting a bit easier, and to put that on hold will undo a lot of work I've done. I'm also out of money, entirely, at the moment, and am living about a quarter paycheck behind, so getting places (and managing to eat) have taken a back seat in most cases.

So I suppose what this entry is about is, "Hey, I love you guys. Just please don't be offended or think I'm avoiding you. It's just not an easy life right now. But I'll be back. Things will get better: they always do."

Just be patient with me, please.

Feel lucky bro. Passion seems to derive friendship desires among people. People usually try to be best friends with the people who are popular but are so passionate about something that they have no time for the many contacts in which they have. The loners like me have a tough time sending email after email and letter after letter to people with no responses. However, I would never go after people and tell someone they are not being a good enough friend. Just for someone to say that I'm their "friend" and genuinely mean it means so much to me that I would do almost anything in return.

I definitely think you hold up your end of the bargain. I know you always give time to me if I want to talk to you. I don't do it a lot and perhaps you would like me to do it more, but it is nice to know you're there. I think it's obvious you value your friendships and they mean a lot to you. It's hard in this selfish world for most people to see that though, especially when you have as many friends and contacts as you do.
