Will every trip to Louisiana make me feel like this?

There are a lot of different kinds of friends.

There are the friends who are also family. Moms, dads, sisters, who are always there for you. These are the people you'll know forever, the ones who remind you that you must have done something right in life to have them in it.

There are the people you don't see often, but when you do, it's like old times and you wonder "Why the hell did we drift apart?!".

There are the friends who you HAVE reconnected with, and they become your best friend, and they make life in a new city so much more fun.

There are the people you thought would be around always. The people who now you are always trying to contact, but they never contact you back. The people who show you time and time again that they aren't worth your tears. These are the ones you have to just let go. I'm finally doing that for good.

And finally there are the friends who, even though you've known them for the least amount of time, they treat seeing you as an event. They're funny and smart and, even for just a couple of hours, make you feel like nothing has changed. They love you and miss you, and you them.

You ladies (and a couple of guys) know who you are. Thank you, you make me smile.

Well, First of all, you are welcome! :)

Secondly, I know what you mean! It seems like lately it’s an obligation for friends to want to hang out, and vice versa. Maybe it’s just because we are older, and busier, and the friends we used to have really aren't as cool as we thought they were when we were young and not as smart as we are now. That’s my story and I'm stickin to it! :)

Why aren't you hanging out with me RIGHT NOW?

Maybe one of these weekends I'll quit being a lazyass and drive to Houston.

UNTIL THEN COME AGAIN SOON THANKS

@Heather, well, busier is definitely an issue, but this one friend in particular who has not taken the time to see when when I've been in town, it just breaks my heart. She just refuses and when I ask if I did something wrong, she says no way. So I don't know what to think. But I do know I'm not putting in the effort anymore. :(

@Kat, YES stop being lazy and come out! We'll go to Genghis Grill and the drive in! I miss you, and thank you for always being so happy to see me. Now move to Texas.
