Friend or faux?

For those who read my blog regularly you might remember me mentioning that i've never surrounded myself with a big pose of girlfriends and lately i have become very proud of myself for always keeping my distance from 'those girls'.

Ive observed that 'those girls' are not really "BFFs", they stick together to validate their own existence, they lie and cheat. 'Those girls' pretend to be one big happy family but will be the first to say something nasty about one another. They come up to girls like me and say 'gosh i cant stand her she is so two-faced!'

Sometimes its better to have a handful of close friends then countless fakes just to seem cool. So here is a message to you, to all those girls who have said something bad about someone they consider their 'bestfriend', take a step back and think: is she really your friend or just a faux?

Too busy to write.

Good evening Sydney-siders, its been a while...i know! I've been so busy trying to keep my world afloat while trying not to drown in the pressure i put on myself. Things have seemed to calm down a bit, this week at least, next week will be back to business, running around like mad and pretending (always pretending) to be on top of things.

Im sure you can all sympathise with me, Sydney is one of the most fast-paced cities in the world, there is no time to take your time. Have you ever really just sat down and watched the day go by? Notice how no one walks at a leisurely pace, we all power walk from meeting to meeting, always grabbing a 'quick bite to eat' instead of enjoying a long relaxing lunch. Ever notice how women wear sneakers on the train instead of their heels, just to walk to work that much quicker?

When did our lives become blurred, its no wonder we look back on the days and barely remember anything, only when those rare moments come by that are significant enough for us to pause and take a deep breath do we remember why it is we push ahead all the time, trying to get ahead instead of just falling behind. Those moments have become defining in most of our lives and at the end of it all we start to question: how do i escape this rat race? But ofcourse Monday comes along and its back to business, we forget the thought as quickly as it came to mind.
