But because I don't like dwelling on bad things or ending my journal on a sour note, here's the good side of things:
Rachel is probably getting a job at a place where an old friend from High School works. Yay! That would mean that I'd get back in contact with her.
Also, the good part of being around the drama-filled people: being around those who are very up front and telling of how they're feeling will do me a lot of good. With any luck, it will get me into the practice instead of always offering a melancholy pseudo-answer to the question "How's it going?" or somesuch like that, and never saying or showing how I really am feeling.
Just another of the few remaining steps to being a normal person.
