Re: helloooo :)


I was thinking about how each and every one of us has gone through a change in our lives. Either we moved homes, changed friends, brought a new wardrobe or even graduated school. At some point we are all going to experience some type of change, and sometimes, it is not until that change, despite the size of it, that we realize just how much we have to adjust. I think we all take familiarity for granted, and so when it is taken away we have to make very dispassionate adjustments until we can find that natural sociability and ease again.
But in a way I've found it liberating not knowing the people and the area, I feel like I'm being myself alot more. Noone here knows of me, therefore I have a less limited self preservence. It's a way of being optomistic about the situation anyway

Also, unless you tell them, nobody knows the absolutely stupid things you did in the past ... unlike the people with whom you grew up, who will constantly remind you of how stupid you've been - and tell your new friends as well!!

On this point, it would be good to not introduce your new friends to your sibling(s) ... since then the stories would be told ...
