Friends Old and New

Weird weekend.

Met a friend of Jase's at Comedy Sportz last Friday and then again at a BBQ we had at his place on Sunday. We went for a walk after everyone else had left and then came back to Jase's just talking and talking. She is just the sweetest thing ever, incredibly funny and has such a wonderful outlook on life considering some of the crap she's dealt with in life. I look forward to running into her again because she is just so easy to talk to and so much freaking fun to be with! Sorry Jase but this one you have to share...

Stumbled onto a classmate website thursday that I added my name to for kicks. Almost immediately got an email from an old friend I went to school with a couple of billion years ago (okay, so its only been 21 years). We've exchanged emails a few times now and its funny how easily we are falling into our old friendship. We've both grown and changed in so many ways but he's still the same nice guy I knew from school who didn't care what others thought if he talked to the school's resident "fat girl". I have to admit I didn't expect to actually renew any old friendships but I find myself now wondering what happened to some of the other people I used to know....

Not a whole lot to say with this post....just an observation on the power of friendship and how we all need someone in our lives that we can both lean on and be a support for. The Shawna of the past would have probably shunned that notion...back in the days where I was so wary of letting people close because they were only going to hurt you in the end. I am happy to find that I am willing to take a chance on people. Not always, but a lot more than I used to. Does that mean there is some hope for me yet?
