The Morning After... Dawn Breaks
There is something irreplaceable about girlfriends. And no, diamonds are indeed not a girl's best friend. Nothing beats a real girlfriend -- and I mean someone real, in flesh and blood.
I hate having girlfriends who live freaking far away. I hate it whenever I send them off at the airport, I only get to spend the summers with them. What a bummer! It's like before we have enough girl time, they scoot off to some far away land, and skype becomes crack to my life.
I'm glad Dawn is back -- it's good seeing her. Everytime I see her, I wished she learnt to take more care of herself. She's a great girl and she deserves so much more than the world is offering her..
I want to tell her that she should quit smoking, that she should not fall for the same old, same old jerks, that she should learn to love herself more, but those words don't resonate. And somehow, it seems they bounce off her and I wonder to what extent I actually am like her, to what extent we are all like her -- lost in our own flights of fancy, trying to be perfect in an imperfect world. Maybe deep down we're all the same.. different faces of a coin, but still, the same coin.
I'm so happy to see her -- I give her a huge hug. She's still the same soft squishy cuddly teddy bear she always was. I love the times I used to stay over the nights before she flys off, talking until we fall alseep. There truly is something irreplaceable about a friendship with a girlfriend.
I really wish Dawn will find her own happiness, which ever way she defines it. I wish she will find happiness from within, it's not something a guy can define for her, but it's learning to love herself, within and without.
6.5 weeks more before Shimei comes back. Now that's a girl that totally kicksass! :)
