I wrote a really depressing post here of how Karl has been having to stay at work late due to last minute stuff given to him (and then walking home arriving with his work clothes drenched in sweat because he leaves at a time when there are no available cabs), and how I am lonely due to the lack of friends here.
But I decided to delete it. Because who wants to read that? And who will want to hang out with me after seeing I’m in a dumpy mood? And will I really get someone to text me back if I complain that my texts go ignored?
So here it goes. I need friends in Manila. It’s depressing not having social interaction with people who are not trying to sell you stuff (one can only go to the mall so many times).
(As a disclaimer, I did get invited to lunch today, but my stomach has been weird, and I think it’ll be safer for all involved if I stay close to home.)
People warned me that I would be bored not working, I said I’d find hobbies. But even hobbies are more fun with friends!
Here’s hoping that in a few weeks, I’ll get my social life back. And that this will be the most depressing post of my stay in Manila — things must only get better, right?
