Old Friends, Old Friends

In a very strange occasion last night Jessica slept over. It's only strange because it was a Tuesday night. She always stays at the weekend. We did what we always do, had beer, pizza, and deeply philosophical conversations about sexism, and the multiverse theory. We watched some Red Dwarf and as per usual I ended up with a stomach cursing it's own existence as well as my own. It's a shame we couldn't record any of it. It would have made for good listening. Whenever we talked in school everyone stopped and paid attention.

What was really strange/special is that someone I used to know talked to me. I've mentioned a few times lately that there have been people in my life that I wish didn't disappear. I'm a firm believer in that if two people are meant to be together (not necessarily in that way) then not even time can keep them apart, and eventually they will be in eachother's lives again. I had my proof before with Jessica. She left my life and then came back two years later, and now, after the same amount of time even, someone else has come back to me. Cinders even used to tell me that we would meet again. Don't worry it's not her. Not this time.

It's an old American friend of mine called Holly. We met on a forum a few years ago. Back when I was really lonely without Jessica I joined a forum one day. I met a lot of people on there, and I became good friends with quite a fair few of them. I was even romantically involved with one (the same girl who left me to save me future pain that I talked about yesterday). Holly was someone who was actually banned from talking to me by her parents at one point. I was 18/19 and she was 14/15 and they just didn't like the idea of her talking to someone so much older than her. Plus as you probably know by now I can get easily carried away.

Anyway, she was one of the people in my life that took the place of Jessica while she was gone. I find it kind of funny that I couldn't get one person to replace her. It took several. There was no one person who was quite like her. Holly meant a lot to me at a time though, and I thought about her a lot while we were apart. I think I even broke her heart once. I did deeply upset her a few times, but like the best of friends they always forgive and move on.

Holly became someone special to me in her own right, and she still is actually. She's one of the select few I let in to my life and opened myself up to. Even better, she's one of the few people who didn't make me regret the choice, because she didn't hurt me except for when she left. These things happen though. She came back in the end, that's all that matters, ne? I don't know how long she's going to be back for, but hopefully a while.

  5. I think there are people that you're destined to meet because in some way they make a difference in how your life will unfold. And when you have lost them for a time and they come back it's quite special.

  6. That;s lovely! I agree with you 100% in regards to if a person is meant to be in your life, they'll find their way back in their eventually. One of my best friends from high school and I didn't really speak for about two and a half years, not because we fell out of anything, but I think cuz we both didn't bother staying in touch. now we've reconnected and are getting back to where we were :)

  8. I'm so glad that you had a great evening with Jessica and that you have reconnected with Holly. I also believe that certain people are meant to be in our lives for whatever reason and once they've accomplished whatever they were meant to do, they move on and if they were meant to come back, they will. I'm glad Holly was meant to come back to you.

  9. I'm glad she's back! It's hard to watch people you care about disppear from your life and it's hard to let them back into your life if they do return.

  10. The best times of my life were just extended conversations with friends over a few beers. I, myself, had lost a really close friend for over a year, but now he's back in my life and it's pretty freakin' fantastic.

  14. I am happy for you that you are having some old friends come back into your life. I hope what you are saying is true about people being destined to be together or, maybe not together forever, but at least in each other's life in some way. I don't know why I am going to do this, being that I am a screw up at everything..but I think I am going to try to give you some advice. Take advantage of these relatively good times now, when these friends are there with you, to help make you as strong as possible. For we never know when those dark times are lurking around the corner, to sneak up on us and over take us.

  17. Mark, I never left you. I just wasn't able to get in touch with you. You have always been a true friend. I have never had to lie, or impress you. I will be going off to college next year, and hopefully I get in RWCMD, and be able to spend all the time I can with you! And maybe even Jessica, if she likes me (: You are a great person Mark, I will never leave you in spirit
