Yeah, i'm not so bright.
I wonder if I should consider trying to expand my friends list. One thing I've found is that in general, a lot of the people that I interact with through LiveJournal are the people who I end up keeping in contact with. In the past couple years, though, I've essentially kept my friends list flat, in terms of number of friends, despite enjoying the company of many LiveJournal using friends in person.
An example in each case: Jana, aka volantwish, who 4-5 years ago, I never would have expected to meet in person. Despite only talking to her occasionally, we've kept in contact, and she spent most of the weekend at our place hanging out and working on homework. Were it not for friending her on Livejournal, that would likely never have happened.
On the other hand, there is lulabellefp, who I have met a couple times, but don't sde regularly, and (were it not for jess keeping in touch) would not ever hear anything about. And that would be sad, since the few times I've spent time with her, it has been enjoyable.
Perhaps it's time for me to change my behavior with regard to adding people to my friends list. I'm not even entirely sure why I haven't been, but I think it's resulting in fewer personal connections to the people that I enjoy interacting with than I should have.
