Doing People Dirty in the Big D

I was having a conversation with a friend last week and she said that as you get older it's harder to make quality friends. She thought it might be because the older you get the more friends you already have, and the desire to make friends lessens.

As I get older it's interesting to see how relationships change with the people I am close to. What's equally interesting is how people don't grow out of the desire to be in cliques. If you hang out with the same person/people every week, including your wife, you're probably in a clique; albeit it might be a small one.

I've been in Dallas for two months and I've recently had to take a step back and ask myself if I'm going out of my way to meet new people or if I'm happy with the amount of people that I already have as friends. I was, until last week, happy with the amount of people that I'm friends with. #selfish

While my friend is probably right to some extent, I think the more friends you have over time the more you realize that people are crappy and undependable; for the long-term and the short. But I don't want that to be a reason I stop being friends with old friends, and I definitely don't want that to be a reason I stop pursuing new relationships with people. 

If someone asks you to hang out...hang out with them. Better yet, ask someone to hang out. If there wasn't ever a time in your life that you didn't have to make friends than you can stay in your clique forever.

Things to think about:
-Does anyone ever call you back when you apply to jobs on job websites
-Where do you go to listen to new awesome music
-My ipod from 2008 still works
-In Korea they have washers that also dry clothes...or dryers that wash clothes
-Are you Bing or Google
-I eat more Ritz than could possibly be healthy

Things to watch:
Why I love Korea
Presidential debate analysis

Phrases that I hate:
It'll just work itself out. "I really need a job when I get to Vegas." "It'll just work itself out."
No worries. "Hey man I put that pencil back on your desk." "No worries."
