It’s easy to become caught up in the day to day busy lives that we all lead, where work (and education, for some of us) become the key points in which our existence revolves around. It can be genuinely difficult to find time to keep with our friends in the midst of all this, but I think it’s pivotal to do so. This may not mean having all of your friends together at once, but rather, small groups of them or one-on-one time instead. Typically, in addition to whatever I do for my birthday, I have all my closest friends together at my family’s annual skate in Mississauga, but this year circumstances had only a few able to come (thankfully, my two friends I get to see the least were able to make it). This was fine by me, since I’ll be actively arranging times to meet up with my other friends in the near future.
