It's cold outside. I was supposed to go out dancing with an old friend. Said old friend has a habit of bailing on me. Without even calling. I even took a disco nap. Mainly because I was just so tired. The week has been too long and too busy. And it really is not over since I have to teach tomorrow morning. But after which, I will be free for the rest of the weekend to hang with friends. And, from the looks of things, I am going to be busy this weekend catching up.
I had to cancel on a friend tomorrow morning. We were going to head over to a big designer "friends and family" sale. I may go Sunday morning before I meet my sister for brunch. I hate canceling get-togethers with friends but lately, I have been having difficulty keeping appointments and balancing my time with them and my time alone. Time alone has won out a lot. Not sure what the reason is for me just being... anti-social.
So back to my old friend who bailed on me tonight. A large part of me is a bit glad. It's cold enough outside that it would have been a chore for me to go out. Plus, I could really use the rest before tomorrow morning's teaching. In the end, I am fine with not going out. But for some reason, I am slightly miffed that he didn't even just text to say he was bailing. I guess this is the universe giving me a taste of what it feels like to cancel on friends.
Going forward, I'll try harder not to. Later.
