03:16 am - I LIKE DARREN! HE IS MY FRIEND! I LIKE YOU -- AND HIM! HE LIKES ME, AND I LIKE HIM. HE LIKES YOU!
i don't know why i thought the theatersports tryouts were this week, but theyre next week. so wish me luck on tuesday

i was talking to mike and andy the other night about friends and shallow niceness. my argument was that most people are nice and if i'm friendly to them and theyre friendly to me, we're all set. even if we're not super good friends. they were saying that being nice to be nice is insulting[1], and if you aren't genuinely friends wiht someone, being friendly towards them is stupid. which isn't to say be an asshole to everyone you're not already friends with. but don't treat someone like you're friends when you're not.
i have never questioned my position on this before (i've had conversations like this before), but they made a good point. i am nice to some people i don't particularly like, or even outright dislike. i have trouble being mean to someone even if they deserve it. and if i treat everyone the same, friend friend friend, what's the point?

speaking of friends- no one has poked me in the back yet. c'mon, how often do your friends ASK you to jab at them annoyingly? this is an opportunity, people!

[1] i typoed this unsulting. i like that word a lot, but have no idea what it would mean. any suggestions?

your life is a small time on earth. and unless you interact with time, it is a meaningless intangable idea. meeting a new person is just another expirence to add up and change who you are, and if you dont change your memories are shit. and if you have a chance to interact with this person on a daily basis to learn more about them, it wont happen if your an ass. infact its the converse of insulting to be freiendly to a stranger, or a person you dont know deeply... its complementing to diret your attention to someone who may not at all expect it, or in a negative sense... care for it. but with time (it only matters if you use it) you learn if this is the rite person to spend time with. and if someone is your friend, its on the basis of you and that friends judgement of each other and latter interaction, and it should be known that your friendly interaction with others is not a basis of the relationship of the two of you.

hmpf. yeah. i cant talk good. so thats what i woulda said in that convo.
