It's annoying that the copy machine isn't working. I have a lot of projects on hold because I can't make copies. The technician called while I was at the post office and was apparently kind of rude on the phone, like he didn't want to come out and fix the machine. It's your job, Mr. Technician. Sorry.

It's funny that I can be out in the middle of the office and still feel like I'm all by myself. The back room has three desks in it and two people chatting. There are two offices on the other side of the building that have people chatting in them. And here I am all alone. :) It's not that bad, but sometimes it kind of makes me sad that I have such a hard time even chatting with people I don't know very well. These people are people I know pretty well, but not well enough for anyone to feel like coming here to talk to me. And yes, I've put forth effort too. I guess I have a stand-offish exterior or something. I've had this problem for ages and ages, and I'm pretty sure it's why I have no friends in Corvallis. Even if other people are willing (which they don't appear to be, really), I find reasons why I don't like them (usually it has something to do with intelligence). I think the last good friend I made is rini, and the rest of my friends are either old friends from school or Cory's old friends. Oh well. It's not like I'd love to hang out with people all the time anyway. I like my quiet little life right now.

Well, I'm flattered :-) I met your intelligence standards! Yay!
heh.

I was just thinking about the friend problem the other day. I seem to relie rather heavily on the people who happen to be around- I have some friends from college, some from high school and grade school, but the vast majority right now are from working at AFS- cause they're here and I spent so much time with them at work- of course, they're also great people and I'm glad they're my friends, but I don't seem very good at taking a hugely active role and going out and meeting new people. Lately it feels like most of the new people I meet are through other people. Eh, I guess that's not necessarily bad, is it?

I don't think it's bad, 'cause I mostly do that too. It's just that the people I work with are never people I want to hang out with at the end of the day. There are 7 other people in this office and they're all either a lot older than me (like care much about hanging out with (which is one person, heh) - she drinks too much for my taste, 'cause she's young.

Maybe someday Cory's job will move him back to Portland. That would be nice. :D
