some thoughts on friendships

I think if our extended quarantine has taught me anything, it’s that we emphasize our relationships too much. Hangouts are exhausting. It’s great to have a pool of people available, but keeping up is exhausting. There’s been less pressure to keep up and that’s okay.

I think we’re a little brainwashed to have a bunch of really close friends. I have a few, and then I have a lot of friends at a distance I know I can talk to whenever. I think this is a good balance.

It’s okay. Let’s focus on the media studies & the mandolin.
