july 2 is exactly the middle of the year (according to dear mgg), and acting upon his suggestions that this is a good time to reflect, here is my, um.... reflections.
this half year, it seems has been a half year of building relationships for me, that of friendships or even of the romantic kind. either way, i have found a significant increase in the people i know, quite a feat i have to say since i barely consider myself to have a healthy social life. much thanks to the connecting powers of dear joel mcvie and the after effects of his blogging and texting tentacles, i have had the great pleasure and honor of rubbing elbows, bumping into, and shaking hands with disassociate-personality plagued creative writers, cement mixing measuring tapes, southern-based accounting belles, frustrated doctors, real doctors and their hilarious hubby lawyers, expatriated banking divas, formerly closeted children's book characters, free_lancers, previously mega-nega tarsier fanatics, rainbow runners, jet setting art enthusiasts, wacky call center agents, perennially lost commuters, talking bathroom fixtures, relatives of classmates, corporate seahorses, transmorphing emo goddesses, artists, newscasters, sensual entrepreneurs, blog royalty, self-secured fairies, fierce chroniclers, ultimate blogging islams, lion city speed junkies, not so diminutive talking trees and their not so diminutive atheist fans, braces-sporting urbanites, fag hags, song writers, composers, photographers, film makers, bitches and pseudo bitches, fags and well, pseudo-pseudo fags.
i have met a not-so-green man in his not-even-close to green showroom. i have met a gentle bookworm yogi. i have bumped into and semi-stalked, or so it may seem, a genuine tripper and collaterally, his beau. i have been introduced to a fellow classical music loving, nutty wanderer, and through him, chatted with a reclusive southern errand boy.
i have gone to walking tours with these people, parties with these people. museum trips, food trips and coffee meet ups that last till near morning. i have jogged with them, joined marathons with them, i even chaperoned on a date.
it has definitely been a very colorful half year and i could only be happy and grateful for the days that were. now that i did look back, i have more than enough reason to be excited for the days that will follow.
to all the people i have met, thank you all for enriching my life this half year. i am eternally thankful.
