I don't need more drama in my life.

The other day, I was hanging out with a friend. She has a boyfriend, she had this big fight with him and another friend of mine during the summer and I supported her, listenned to her and all that stuff friends do for each other. I did not and I still do not agree with her in the way she solved the argument. She has solved the argument with his boyfriend, but she ruined the relationship she had with this other friend of mine, who - get this - was the one who introduced them in the first place... and talked to both so that they got together and so on.

After all this drama, I do not want nor need a freaking boyfriend.

I am proud to say that I have more than 5 friends. Nowadays, those are hard to find and I don't know about the rest of the world, but I need them. Imagine you had just one single friend for the rest of your life. That'd be boring as hell and that friend wouldn't be available for you 24/7. That is how I fell some of my friends with boyfriends are living. It's hard to get to see them, and when I do see them, they are so inmersed in that pink beautiful world of love that they don't notice that you have your little problems too and that you need a little support sometimes too.

What gets on my nerves is that this friend of mine tries to find me a boyfriend or talk me into looking for a guy to fulfill my love life.

I don't mean to sound rude, but back off, I don't need any more drama in my life, thankyouverymuch.

Friends and other magical creatures

I am one of those people who gets friendly with people easily. If I like you for more than a week, I'd probably help you with anything even if I don't really know you that well. I don't do it because I want to get something from you, I do it because I want to, that's the way I am, that's the way my parents taught me to be with people... "Treat people the way you want to be treated". In return, you expect people to do the same, but they don't always do.

Wouldn't it be nice, though, if the world just stopped for a second, and thought about other people instead of just themselves?

The Freedom of Being Single

This summer, I stayed in London for a month. For me, it was the most awesome thing that had ever happenend to me. I got to go and visit everything I wanted, I met great people, and I enjoyed a LOT. I guess I could say it was the best trip of my (short) life.

While being there, I realised that I was single and that I was really fine with it. In fact, I was glad I was single. I could walk around beautiful London, stay with friends until whatever time I wanted, make plans, change them, and visit whatever I wanted to visit. I didn't have to send texts or check my emails or meet with anyone if I didn't feel like it. I didn't have to count on anyone but me. Now, don't get me wrong, I do believe it is great to have a partner to share all these experiences, to cuddle, to feel loved...

But the thing is... I was completely free. No worries. No problems. No nothing. Just me and the world.

For the first time in a long time, I was actually glad that I didn't have a boyfriend.

Social networks

I was talking to a friend one day about this awesome weekend I just had. I hadn't even finished the very first sentence when she interrupted me and told me "Oh, yeah, I read it on twitter". You could say it is my fault for sharing that thought with the whole world on a website. 


However, it made me think about this social media we are so found of. I mean, it is great to stay in touch with people from other countries and catching up with old friends; but we are not aware of the change in people's mentality about the social concept. At least I am not.

Nowadays, we are so attached to technology that we can't even stay half an hour without checking our emails, messages on whatsapp, or mentions on twitter. It is truly a shame. The freaking phone is becoming an extension of us, if it isn't already. 

Sometimes I feel like the world is changing too fast and I just can't keep it up. Maybe I'm an old soul or something like that. Or maybe I just feel too lonely to accept the truth and the change of the modern world.
