Friendship is a complicated thing. Over the years I have gained, and lost, many friends. I have a fairly specific definition of what friendship is.
So I haven’t posted in a while. This is due, in no small part, to my apparent addiction to World of Warcraft. It is funny how addiction works, and even funnier when it is related to a video game. It sounds pathetic, I know, but I can assure you it is quite real, and affects a lot of people. My recent bender regarding World of Warcraft started at the launch of the latest expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.
What is it about me that makes people so drawn to me? My entire life I have never had a problem making friends, and people seem to just gravitate toward me in many ways. The problem is, I really do not hold myself in that high of regard, and I generally lose just as many friends as I gain, just as quickly as I gain them. What’s worse is, I really don’t mind.
