I got a friend request from a high school classmate. I think I mentioned it in the past that my Facebook account is only for the people with whom I really interact with. Or to those with whom I want to reconnect with. From time to time, I accept friend requests from old classmates. But I check their profiles first since I want to know if they are the same person I’ve known in the past.
This old high school classmate of mine was not really a friend. I barely talked to her in class. We were only classmates in freshmen year. After that, I didn’t know what happened to her anymore.
So I checked her Facebook profile. And boy did she looked crazy to me! Literally crazy! She also looked like she’s in the flesh trade, if you know what I mean.
I ignored her friend request. As I’ve said in the past, my Facebook account is not there to win the most number of friends in the history of social networking. It’s there to communicate with friends and love ones. I really ignore friend requests from persons I am not interested in becoming friends with. Or to those who look totally weird or crazy to me. Like that old high school classmate.
Do you approve all Facebook friend requests you get?
I don’t really intend to move away from my country but there are some things that I feel like I’m missing out on because I’m here. Concerts, plays, book signings. These are just three events that I feel I missed out and am still missing out on. Not all of my favorite bands and solo performers come to the country to hold a concert. It takes years before they come. Think John Mayer.
And then there are the plays. It would have been great to see Rent on Broadway when it was still running. And the book signings… There are so many authors that I really like and I would have loved to get my books signed. As usual, they don’t come here. Only a handful come and sign books.
These are just some of the reasons why I would have loved to live abroad.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you MOMs out there!
You are a child’s light, guide and best friend. You are a daughter’s ally. You are a son’s security blanket. You are an amazing person and you deserve all our love! May you get not only love and appreciation today but in every single day for the rest of your life.
Enjoy your special day!
I only have one wish for 2012: that it become much better than 2011.
I just want to achieve my goals and end the year with a big smile on my face. Increase my income. Save enough. Travel more. And just enjoy life.
What are your goals for this year?
Happy 2012! Here’s wishing we all have something brilliant to happen to us this year.
May today bring new beginnings for all of us.
Happy Easter and enjoy your day!
