How to be a nice person?  
Grrr. This is frustrating.
I've been reading the journal of a friend whom I've fallen out of contact with. I haven't seen her in years, and we rarely talk. I'm worried about her, because her life has definitely taken a downward curve and I don't know how to talk to her about it. I mean, "Hi, we haven't spoken in a year or two and I can't help but notice your life sucks so y'know what's wrong with you? Did you realize you're making crappy discisions?" is not the way to go about addressing it. Maybe inviting her to meet me for coffee or something would work. It's hard to tell. We had a falling out before high school ended and while we were officially OK I'm not sure that actually patched up well. I don't even know what it was about, so eh. Who knows.

Invite her out and talk to her. That is what friends do. Through good and bad, fallouts and make-ups, you are there for each other. Sounds like she needs a friend right now too. :)

"But on paper, with the words and the drawings and the tra-la-la~"
Or send mail. It's quiet, it's unobtrusive, and yet completely random and out of the blue. I lapse TERRIBLY when it comes to keeping in touch with people, sometimes even years, but when I do little things like, say, send out handmade-postcards just because I happened to be thinking about them, for any reason at all, there's never NOT been a chirp back.

This isn't to say that disappearing on people is forgivable with chocolates and flowers, but it is to say, most good friends are timeless things. It can be like you only stepped out for a bit.

Whether you make it an invitation or a hello, just make it happen.

OK, if you dig up random quotes from old diary entries I'm going to worry about your apparent surplus in spare time. :-p That a good idea tho'. :) Thankies!

Who is this person of which you're speaking?

Re: Who is it?
I don't want to name them here since they are on LJ and it might embarrass them. AIM me sometime and I'll chat you up. :)

I am sorry about your friend.

I am also sorry to post this here but I don't know if your AIM and your email are messed up as I don't think my messages are going through for you to answer me back so hopefully you will see this here.

I don't know if you are getting your email and it is messed up again, so I guess I will post it here. I sent you $60 over a week ago via paypal tor that $40 worth or product and to more than compensate you for speedy shipping, and the package was supposed to go out the next day and I was to get a tracking number. I don't know if you sent it and your email was messed up again but it did not arrive. The tracking number never came to me and it has been over a week if you did send it so I am getting worried. If you see this can you email me and re-send the tracking number?

Thanks Suzilee I would appreciate any help on that if you see this. I am only posting here because I don't know if your email is messed up again and if AIM is messed up too for you and you did not see my message. Thanks

Hi!
I sent you an email :) That should clear things up a bit, it's got the tracking number & etc. in it. Sorry I didn't answer your AIM messages last night; I didn't hear them and was off my computer for several hours.
