Fortunately for me, I regained all those who were my previous good friends, and in the process gained new ones and now they are more like my sisters and brothers - which is a good thing since I've already lost my parents and most of my relatives! Try it, you'll like it :)
I got no idea who you people are. You went to school where I went to school. I only had 5 or 6 good friends. I ignored everyone else. Why should I fly to Austin or where ever to see people I never meet or knew? Ughh.
