    1st day: nothing memorable
    2nd day: bike ride in below-freezing, snow-blowing weather with 200+ other cyclists. Found out winter riding isn't so bad (well, it was bad today, but it was also the coldest day of the winter yet). Great fun!

    In 2011, there were 5 feasible places I could visit, and I planned to visit at least 2. Ended up not visiting any of them. Hope to change that in 2012.

    One of the worst things about the Internet is that if you have a bad experience with it, a record of it is usually available for people to revisit for all eternity.

    Is it harder to form deep and meaningful friendships as an adult? Or people just need to invest more time to create trust and understanding and thus those deep friendship follow after?

    Two of my closest friends are moving farther away because of their life choices either for work or a certain personal need. One will move back to the motherland and the other is moving with her husband to further their career. In the future, there will be less occasions where we'll meet and talk like before. Now, I'm faced with losing two of my dearest friends. Finding new friends or existing friends that have the same degree of closeness and trust is hard.

    For me, deep and meaningful friendships were formed when I was an adult. It was easier for me to make friends in my younger years because of school, but those friendships were surface level at best. Similar to your situation, my close friends all moved away for whatever reason. They left a void. I'm sure I can have the same type of friendships with new people if I just open up and invest more in it, but I don't.

    You guys are fortunate. I tend to make friends with people who end up stabbing me in the back.

    Not *all* of them, thank goodness, but *way* too many.

    Friends come and go. It is very difficult indeed to find a true friend - someone who you know will help you when you need.

    It's always hard- especially with the demands on time by career, and others.

    You can only do your best to maintain and strengthen a relationship.

    How much you get depends on how much that you put in.

    She's saying "Love is like a barren place. Reaching out for human faith is like a journey I just don't have a map for."

    What a great song.

    Only recently I found out that beside Sun Sign (the one we usually see in horoscope), we also have Moon Sign and Ascendant Sign. Moon Sign supposed to reveal your inner personality and subconscious mind.

    I think people just lose their innocence more and more as they get older.

    Then there are ppl like me who will probably never fully grow up. That may sound bad, but I like that I still have a child-like innocence that allows me to enjoy things we loved younger. Like making a high pitched scream when I get excited.
