To end the daily grind this week (haha as if I’m busy, no?), I went to meet a friend whom I’ve come across on the internet.
Actually I never knew that we’ll be chit chatting to our heart’s content every time both of us are online (and even if we’re not, we'd still reply to each other’s messages even after a few hours had passed by, haha).
I was the one who initiated the meetup, because I wanted to give her something in secret (which I blurted out because it was an epic fail; now she has 2 of such already).
It was a good thing that the rendezvous place she picked was just beside the train terminal.
It was quite convenient for me to commute, though I must say I was still scared because I hadn’t done commuting alone for quite a while.
A train personnel even approached me and helped me how to purchase a single entry ticket. Yeah, figuratively speaking, I really lived under a rock for a loooong time.
Anyway, so I hit touch down on our rendezvous point and we finally saw each other in the flesh, face to face (though of course we’re both wearing a face mask).
She was kind enough to let me pick the food joint we’re going to have lunch at. I had a lasagna craving so I opted for the go-to fast food diner that had one (Henlo Greenwich).
We exchanged stories of our daily lives, some things under the sun, our writing careers, our passion for writing, and some other things worth noting.
Then we parted ways because I felt very tired, as I’m really physically weak.
Haha, at this point of writing I don’t know what else I’d say. Please pardon me, I’m not really good at journaling my daily adventures in detail.
And sorry for the unflattering pictures because I’m not that good with taking pictures and my phone could only process small pixels, hehe!
I should practice to take photos to document my daily life, no?
But here’s one from her photo reel:
All I can say now is that friendship really knows no bounds. Whether you’ve met each other online, have just met recently, or there’s a wide gap in your age that you feel you won't click, if you really want to sustain your connection and relationship with them, you will really invest your time and effort to deepen your ties with them.
I don’t know how long this will last, because people do come and go. People will have different priorities as they age. I might disconnect from social media again, who knows right?
But I’m glad that I had met and be friends with one cheerful, open, kind, and chatty (haha yeah, I appreciate this in her haha) teddy bear online.
Thanks, Zi You. Even if there’s a chance you won’t be able to read this, thanks for the friendship <3. A toast to our next adventure haha!
