I couldn’t remember the last time I witnessed an acquaintance become a friend. When being on a last-name interactions relinquishes it’s control to a first-name relationship, it’s a feeling a missed so very much. When I heard the voice, that only knew me as Bain, sound out Alex i was hit with a wave of “feel good” and “butterflies.”
I was recently blessed with an unexpected visit from an old acquaintance from high school. She graduated a year ahead of me and always held a position of leadership in an organization we both committed ourselves to. This gal carried herself in a way I admired. She was a straight shooter, never a liar or deceiver, nor a sugar-coater. Diligent and persistent, she spoke with actions and work ethics rather than the simplicity of words. Yet I never got a chance to sit with her and really get to know her, so we remained acquaintances, before she left to serve our country within the United States Navy.
But there she was, visiting me in my work place, hoping that I’d still be there by some off chance. The moment she walked past the window I recognized her; hit by shock then excitement, I politely excused myself from conversation with a customer to rush to her and embrace her. Unfortunately, with the nature of the restaurant I manage, I had not the option to sit and have a catch-up moment with her, so we agreed to meet afterwards.
They couldn’t hang

First of all, I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and had a good start to the new year. I, personally, am quite glad 2011 is finally over.
But enough chit chat, it’s time to let out my closet nerd!
Not sure if you’ve heard about it, but there is this game called “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” by Bethesda Studios and I’ve managed to get my hands on it. Yet this is not your normal video game. In my eyes its an intricate canvas waiting for you to paint your masterpiece with your own actions, and I feel the painting I’ve begun to create gives insight to how I feel and maybe some subconscious desires. I have a feeling that some people who read this aren’t familiar with The Elder Scrolls series, or even video games in general, so I’m going to take a paragraph or two to explain what these are all about before I dive into to my observations. So if you already know what the hell this game is all about feel free to skip ahead.
I’ve accepted the fact that I’m terribly lonely
