Is it popular to make a graduation photo album in western countries? Here, normally every kindergarten, school, university makes it every year for students who graduate in the year. As I'm at the last year of my university, we are also making our photo albums now. Since summer, a photographer comes here sometimes and is taking our snapshots or group photographs. Since I don't know most of the students that will be on the album, feel that having it is good. It will be one of the chances to remember my past...while I was at this uni.
I rarely see my past graduation photo albums, but when I look at them, they remind me my school life there. Whenever I look at them, I remember my friends, teachers, and who I liked, lol. They should have been changing for the time. Sometimes, I get surprised how much my friends changed. They started making up, their taste of clothes changed...so, most of my girlfriends became prettier than before. But 'NOW' is our prettiest time I think. Early in 20's is when girls are prettiest in their life. We are getting older and older... Of course I don't wanna be older, however, it can't be helped. Keeping our looks younger is hard unless we are not people in show business or if our job isn't about beauty I think.
Anyway, we took some photos for the album yesterday with my circle members and juniors. And after that, I asked to take a snapshots with some of my friends. I don't have many close friends in the uni, however, of course some of them are closer than other students in my class.
One of them is my closest gf in the uni, and one is ex-bf, and one is a guy that I sometimes go drinking with another friend...and I have a few other friends in the uni, but they are not in this photo, lol. One of them was with me and listened to my talk when I was dying last year when I had a broken heart, and the other asked me to go to have a meal together since he was anxious about me since he thought that I may have got desperate at that time, lol. Of course I didn't. However, I was glad that he felt care about me. So...I like my friends.
I think, I don't need a boyfriend, but need friends. When I was in high school, I had a bf, and was going out almost only with him. Because, if I have a bf, he is easy to ask to go with somewhere if I have places that I want to go. However, after breaking up, I thought friends are more important. Boyfriends are good only while when we like each other. I don't think it will last for a long time. I liked my bf so much when I was going out with him and thought that I would get married with him some day. However, it ended. Feelings change. However if he says that he likes me now, however I think that I like him now...don't think that we both will keep feeling so. However, it doesn't mean that I don't care about my bf. Of course, I will go somewhere...or do something with him, but don't think to care him too special. It doesn't mean that he is not special for me. Of course he is special because he is my boyfriend, I mean that I don't give him preference without special reason.
For example, if I promise to go to Disney land with my friends, and if my bf asks me to go there after making the promise, I will reject him. For me, previous promise takes precedence. It may be normal, but I know there are people who usually take their bfs or gfs higher and I don't like that. People like that will sometimes break the promise with me for their bfs and gfs. I don't think all of them are bad, of course it depends on the situation because there are sometimes things that have to be taken precedence than anything.
As I think that friends can keep much longer than bfs and gfs, I don't wanna look at only my bf. Friends will bring me more valuable life than bf. I can imagine my life without bf easily but can't imagine without friends. Friends play an important part in my life. However, I don't think that I have many good friends. There are some closer friend than other friends, and a few closest friends, but they are enough. I'd rather want a few good friends with deep relationship than making lots of light friends. If I get a really good friend, we can keep going out forever and ever until we die! And that is one of the things that I think don't exist between me and my bf at that time :s You may think that I'm a gf who got lost her feelings, lol. However, I also think that I'm not so good at being someone's gf :P
