March and September have always been the busy months of my social calendars. March is my birthday month, and my life is heavily doused with the Virgo influence (August-September).
But this year, I'm attempting to simplify things.
Last Saturday (11 March 2006) I met the Brat for lunch. Actually, I ate and she had coffee.
Last Saturday a classmate from my Secondary School got married. Church ceremony in the morning, dinner in the evening. I wasn't there for either.
I actually like The Bride - my ex-classmate. She has always been kind to me, and the fact she still invited me after all these years of absence was thoughtful.
So why didn't I go?
Reason #1: One of my former manager will be there. My former manager is first cousin to The Bride. I do not wish to see my former boss.
There is truth to Six Degrees of Separation - you're bound to have mutual acquaintances, especially if you date your friends.
Reason #2: EX #2's sister is good friend with The Bride, so they will be helping out with the wedding. It tortures me to have to be nice to EX #2, someone I no longer like very much.
Why did I go out with him in the first place? Rebound relationship. On hindsight I had always known he's too self-absorbed to love anyone but himself. He was the safest, least guilty and cleanest break-up I EVER had.
I don't want to speak to him again. Actually, it's more like I don't want to have to listen to his self-pitying, ego-centric rambling anymore. I can think of 1000 better ways of wasting my time - all of them painful - but all less dreadful than his personality.
Reason #3: EX #1 - first love, if we can call it that. How I feel now is very different. Too many unresolved issues.
I don't think we should see each other again.
