On the downside, I got a scary e-mail from my best friend of 11 years that she feels we are loosing our friendship. Yes, it's hard to keep it up when we spent total of several hours together in the past 7.5 years, mostly talking on the phone and sending e-mails (even that is rather monthly than weekly). But still... It pains me that she feels that way, she is one of a handful of people I can tell almost anything. Maybe that was just an emotional overload - she just moved to the Netherlands a couple months ago. I remember the roller coaster I went through when I moved to the US - torn between hating everything and being excited, between trying to start with a clean slate and keeping all old relationships going... Life is not as simple as I like to make it sound.
Regardless, I feel so content and at peace with myself, nothing can break through that abstract happy state. Maybe I was meant to get out of the busy hustle and bustle of the city and into the quiet small town every once in a while.
