Had to dump a relatively new online friend simply because I realized that I absolutely do not have enough time on my shoulders for the stuff we were doing.
Only problem is, that's really only what I told him. I've got more friends I goof off with; he just came into the picture a lot later than he did, especially at a point in my life where I'm gonna have less time for goofing off. Only problem is, this new friend got super passionate about what we were doing and even made like, a well-organized server for eberrything that he's pretty much gonna have to sit in alone now.
So now I'm wondering if I'm just a pooch for not just giving it to him totally straight instead of the half-truth and making him disgusted with me for his own good. I mean I'm sure he'll abandon it anyway and/or just use it for his next friend, but it hasn't even been a week and he told me that "people like me are rare to come by". Not even sure if this word soup I typed up makes sense in retrospect, but I'm glad at myself for having the self-control to cut off people if I really, truly don't have time for them. Been doing the exact opposite for way too long and it's quacked me over.
The Navy's totally quacked; have a friend who basically was the top of his class in the, like, preliminary tests, got recommendations eberrywhere for being in leader positions, but then they decided to do a second eye test while eberryone was on the ships -- and EVERYONE failed. They either had to take janny duty or get booted off the ship, and pretty much eberryone chose the latter. They're treating them all like prisoners while they slowly sail to land, and a fight pretty much breaks out eberry day due to eberryone being so irritable.
