I think I must have blogged about it so many times before. I do not have a social life. In fact, for the better part of my life, I didn’t have a foggiest clue about a social life. A lot to say for a guy who routinely spent a large part of his life being around girls and giving relationship and life advice to people.
Ok I do have a social life.
It’s just that it wasn’t one where most people usually went out and did anyway. I mean…I didn’t really have many friends and never really had a chance to do many things with friends. Most of the time, I always ended up catching movies by my own self anyway.
In the terms of other people I know.
It’s a sad life.
But I guess thats where what I’m doing comes in. This…all this. This net, this blog, this…well…the chats. That is the social world around me. That is the world that I have come to love and rely on, not because it doesn’t hurt me…it does. It is as real as any kind of life with its ups and downs.
But here…I find friends worth keeping.
I don’t know. People are so afraid of people not being who they are online. I just find that here online, people are most true to who they are online. Whether they are a liar, attention seeker, fixer, or all round good person. This net…is where we can be the most true to ourselves.
Of course…that doesn’t mean I forget the real world. After all…I do still study there. Which is why there is that door there right in front on me. That door is to remind me that I still have to tear my eyes away from the world where I can be someone to a world where I have to still make myself someone.
The net may be a world I occupy.
But that door leads me to a world where I have to live.
Either way, it’s still a world.
Either way, I still got to walk it.
