Feeling out of touch

So I blog about how busy I am all the time, but that inevitably leads to me missing out on my friends more than I would like.

My best friend and I have known each other since we were 4. The reason we know this is because I once found a picture of us both dressed as ugly ducklings for our preschool program. We went to grade school, middle school, high school, parted a bit for college but eventually ended up in the same city and have lived together for the past three years. At the end of the month, we will venture into the world of cohabitation, which we mostly have been doing anyway. But nonetheless, I will miss her. We barely see each other as is, and I think that's what makes moving even harder. At least now, we have the chance of running into each other at our place.

Secondly, two of my best school friends are in England for the semester. I tell them this often, but it's strange to walk through the department and work on the paper without them around. They will both be back in June, but we're all nearing graduation.

My other best friend Tara moved to Minneapolis in January 2008, and I have to say my social life still has not recovered. I keep promising I'll make it down to see her, but every time I'm there it's for a convention or meeting and it never happens.

Along with a smattering of other wonderful pals that I never see, I'm feeling lonesome for them. But alas, tomorrow is production day and I will hole up in the office for 20-odd hours. Luckily, my staff is great full of good friends. No doubt, there will be some fun had in Advo-land tomorrow.
