Old Friends

May 19, 2009

Yesterday was the first time I have seen my friends from home in a long time (I became frum at college). It was supposed to just be three girls so I could ease into the super relig thing. Instead it was three girls and three of my guy friends. I knew about one of the guys about 2 hours before so I sent him a text. Granted not the best idea but Im bad at this. Anyway I told him that I dont hug boys anymore and its not that big of a deal but I just didnt want it to be awkward. I had planned on just not hugging any of them as to not make it as obvious but when they showed up the three girls came up first and put out their arms. When the boys tried to say Hi to me and tell me that my house was nice I just shruged, turned around, and said yes. Oh and they all noticed. Whoops. Anyway the rest of the night went ok, exsept for the pact to go to Las Vegas when we are all 21. I said I would be the chaperone. It only became awkward when it was time to go. I said goodbye to everyone and then the boy who I orgininally told about the shomer thing came up next to me to ask if we could side bump instead. I kindof gave a weirded out scared look and thenĀ I felt bad. On the lighter side, I am still friends with the six of them so I guess that is good.

Oh my life
