This is my early New Year’s resolution, as it came to me over coffee with my new friend Alice:
Visit more often with your short-distance friends, and be more available to your long-distance ones.
I think I am regaining lost self-confidence in my ability to be a great friend. Where did I lose that, anyway? Ah yes, I remember now, because this ties in tightly with how hard it is for me to separate others’ opinions of me and my own.
By the way, long-distance friends: send me an ICQ message soon. I’m using ICQ for Mac now, and it works, so I need to add you to my contact list again!
