Ok, before I had posted about a certain person who was one of my closest friends who moved to North Carolina and how we have been drifting apart recently, well in the last 4 days it was like an ice shoot and we were driving a bobsled since it went downhill so fast..
so here it is: Back in May my BFF said to me "Hey my godfather has a time share in Vegas, he offered it to us for my birthday...." so YAY Vegas here we come..
While talking to another friend about seeing NKOTB she said "OH they are gonna be in Vegas on October 11 we should totally go" so I was like "well, i needed to talk to you anyway, Britt wants to go to Vegas for her birthday and we are just happening to go on October 10-13 so we will be there for NKOTB"
While on the phone with her, she IMs her friend in NC and invites them and a certain person we all know and most don't love. All of a sudden they are coming to Vegas as well.
2 days later i get a message from NC friend saying " I can't go to Vegas, I have a wedding to go to"....
Fast forward to October 11... I txt certain friend in NC saying "Have fun at your wedding" and I get this in reply "What are you talking about?" sounds fishy doesn't it, so I text him "you said you had a wedding to go to and that's why you couldn't come to Britt's birthday in Vegas" his reply "oh i forgot I told you about that" uhhhh extremely fishy if you ask me...... I ask him straight out "Is there an actual wedding?" which i get a pix of the invitation in reply and this message "see this is why we can't be friends anymore.. You never trust me"
Was I wrong to wonder if there was even a wedding? Maybe I should have been more trusting.
Fast forward to Oct 15. he says that's i can no longer relate to him and we are done.. Fine, so I ask him for a picture I gave him back. It was my brothers picture (my bro died when I was 16) and I gave to to this guy who i thought was my best friend and always would be, and that he was like another brother to me..... I said that if we weren't friends than I wanted the picture back and I would gladly reimburse him any shipping costs... Now all of a sudden he has to "think things over" and "excess his priorities and mull things over...."
WTF............. I am so confused right now, and I think the worst part is that I really don't care what he decides as long as I get my picture back..... I mean we haven't had much contact in over a year and hardly talk or see each other, so its not like we had a great friendship anyway..... But was I wrong to not trust him about the wedding? Was I wrong to ask for my picture back? I really need advice on this....
LETS GO RED SOX!

What is a friend? I thought it was someone who would be with you through absolutely everything and be the one person you could count on. I either have a dumb idea about what a friend is or i am just lousy and picking them.
I have my two best friends. These two know who they are and have been with me through pretty much everything. I met one of these people in my first week of college. We got a long great and when it came time to decide on roommates for next year both of us were hesitant to pick each other for fear that we wouldn't be able to get along, well it became an necessity for us to pick roommates or not get a room so we decided that we were would room together, best decision for us, for almost 8 years later we all still as close as sisters.
the other one I met when I was a junior in college. he is one of the best guys that I know. If I ever had a problem I know that he would be down here in flash to do whatever I needed. He listens to me ramble and helps me through all of my problems and vice versa. We make an effort to talk and to see each other which is how lasting friendships are formed.
Than there are the friends who I thought would be there till the end. Throughout college I called these two my best friends. One I met on prom night and our friendship quickly became great even though we went to different colleges. After senior year though I realized we weren't actually friends. When I decided to go away to school I lost almost all of my friends from home. I just found that I didn't connect with them anymore. I was bored sitting around my house all by myself and this friend felt the same way, so we used each other for company when we were home on breaks. OF course i went and visited her at school a few times but I began to realize not once did she even make the effort to come up and visit me or to see my dorm or campus. Her boyfriend at the time had made the effort why couldn't she. She didn't really care about me, she just wanted something to do with someone. needless to say we don't talk anymore.
Then there is a certain someone who is say fell into the vortex that is North Carolina. We were closer than close, like brother and sister. I could tell him anything, but after graduation things began to change. It was great for awhile and than when he moved to NC things began to change. No longer was I that important to him, he now could go 6-9 months without speaking to me. I would call him and get no call back, and I would have to hear about his life from a mutual friend. I became very very resentful of this mutual friend and their friendship, it seemed like to me that he chose her over me. I just don't feel like we know each other at all anymore. I mean I bet you he couldn't name my favorite baseball player or my favorite movie anymore.. I know nothing about him either.
So the question is, is this my fault? Do I have too high of standards for friends? am I too demanding? I just don't know. All I know is that I feel alone a lot and I wish to hell that I didn't!
This blog will manly focus on what is going on this week and the only thing that is important to me this week is the Postseason. I can not tell you how happy I am that for the first time in 13 years the demon evil empire will not be in the post season. I hope that Jeter and ARod are polishing up their golf swings because they are going to need it. :)
JON LESTER. This is probably one of the greatest stories in MLB (besides Josh Hamilton). Picture this its July of 2006 and you find out that you have Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. You leave the team and go for Chemo and you come back in August of 2007 pitch a few games and than pitch the clinching game in the World Series. Fast Forward to May 2007 in your first full season after coming back from Cancer you pitch a No Hitter. Jon Lester has become the Ace in the absence of Josh Beckett and Curt Schilling. He is going tonight against Lackey. Can he handle it? he has proven that he can!
