I just have to say that it’s been an amazing adventure writing this blog.
Not only have I been able to share my own (hopefully, funny) stories and try to match my twisted wit with some .gifs, it’s also all about having ability to reach out to people, not only from the United States, but all over the world. It’s pretty awesome when you think about it.
I’ve met some wonderful people and it’s interesting to realize the commonalities we all share, which ultimately seals our fate in the bonds of friendship.
The only thing that sucks is that you can’t just call them up to say, “Hey! How’s it going?” or ask them if they’d like to meet up for lunch or coffee…
…because they live so far away:
Anyway, the other day, I received an awesome birthday package from Shirley Maya Tan, all the way from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I opened it up and found seven books and five DVD’s about Buddhism (achieving enlightenment, taking charge of my life, finding happiness, etc). She knew that I loved learning about other cultures, people, and religions:
Shirley first contacted me after reading my post about depression several months ago and we’ve been friends ever since.
Then, there’s Paula from Argentina, who writes at Vintage Kitchen. We communicated back and forth about blog related stuff, and found out we both lived in California at the same time when we were younger.
It made me wonder if we had ever crossed paths so long ago and now met up again, because we both mentioned how it felt as if we had known each other for a long time. It was like we just picked back up where we left off and never missed a beat.
Which is odd, because…
So, you see? When you reach out and touch other people’s lives, you never know what you’ll find.
and I’ve found some really terrific friends from around the world!
