[sticky post] Friends Only  
The more things change, the more they stay the same. I'm not sure who the first person was who said that. Probably Shakespeare. Or maybe Sting. But at the moment, it's the sentence that best explains my tragic flaw, my inability to change. I don't think I'm alone in this. The more I get to know other people, the more I realize it's kind of everyone's flaw. Staying exactly the same for as long as possible, standing perfectly still... It feels safer somehow. And if you are suffering, at least the pain is familiar. Because if you took that leap of faith, went outside the box, did something unexpected... Who knows what other pain might be out there, waiting for you. Chances are it could be even worse. So you maintain the status quo. Choose the road already traveled and it doesn't seem that bad. Not as far as flaws go. You're not a drug addict. You're not killing anyone... Except maybe yourself a little. When we finally do change, I don't think it happens like an earthquake or an explosion, where all of a sudden we're like this different person. I think it's smaller than that. The kind of thing most people wouldn't even notice unless they looked at us really close. Which, thank God, they never do. But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever... that you'll never have to change again.

Hey! I was just browsing around some LJ communities and thought I'd come check out your journal again. You seem super cool and anyone who likes Maggie Grace is automatically cool. Add me?

I'm usually terrible about going out and friending people, but I've seen you around similar communities so often and for so long that I thought I ought to finally swing by your personal LJ and say hello. I saw that you like Everwood, so I know you must be pretty cool. :)

Anyway, if you're intrigued, let me know. My profile's not all that informative, but you might be able to glean a bit about me from it if you're interested.

Christina: winter scenefly_meaway on November 20th, 2005 11:16 am (UTC)
First; I'm loving that icon you're using :D

And I know what you mean. I'm also terrible about that. And I'm always to shy to just go around and ask people if they want to be friended. And I've seen you around too and I would actually really love it to have you on my flist. I added you just now :D

Haha, yeah, I love Everwood. I'm not up to speed with you guys, if I'm lucky the new season will start in December, I haven't checked yet. I'm so looking forward to it.

Hey there, I am the webmistress of Nicole-Online.net, and you used to upload your Nicole Kidman icons to our archive. I just wanted to let you know that this icon archive has been moved to Livejournal and can now be found at nicole_elite. I have moved your icons over there, too. And of course, you will have posting access in case you want to post new icons. Feel free to pick up your invitation here: http://www.livejournal.com/manage/invites.bml

Especially the header... you won't believe it but I had a similar pic in the workings for my new layout. However mine was white/blue... will do a new one don't want to look like a rip off. But it's a really really gorgeous layout!
Christina: butterflyfly_meaway on February 14th, 2006 01:48 pm (UTC)
Awww, thanks hun!!!
I didn't make the header though, paigegail did. So hey, you should totally just use your layout, I mean, it's not a rip of if you made it already and we don't have a lot of friends in common, so it's not like they'll know ;)

So please don't! I'm curious as to what you had planned for the layout :D
Anna <3: VM - bored nowx_annax on February 19th, 2006 03:31 pm (UTC)
Hi there :) I saw we have some friends in common, you make great graphics and you seem very cool :p can I add you?
AND you have the sexiest layout :o
Christina: me- vm- this is coolingfly_meaway on February 19th, 2006 03:46 pm (UTC)
Of course you can add me! I just added you too. We do have quite some friends in common and you seem nice, so I'm looking forward to getting to know you :D

And awww, thanks. paigegail made me the header!
Monicasilentpunkass on March 3rd, 2006 05:37 am (UTC)
hey so we have some similar interest and i think we would get along. I think it would be great to get to know you better. So i added you, can you add me back?

deloveja on March 16th, 2006 07:58 pm (UTC)
Hi love :)
I was thinking almost two months about adding you, but oh I have not so good english, so I think it can be a HUGE problem.

If you want to be my friend add me,Im not adding you right now, because Im not sure what you think, and I dont want to bother you, asking me if I can take you off, of my friend list.

I hope that one make sense and we have a few interests :))

whit love,
Christina: me- veronica is beautifulfly_meaway on March 16th, 2006 08:05 pm (UTC)
Hey Marilyn :D

Ofcourse I want to add you back, you seem like a nice person and that your English is not that good, is not a problem for me. I'm not English myself and yeah, I think that what you wrote here is readable and everything, so I have no idea why that would be a problem.

So yeah, I'm definetly adding you and I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

*is feeling brave*

I never do this, but I can't seem to read anything lately that you haven't left a long/fabulous/sweet comment to. You seem all kinds of wonderful, and we share the acceptable amount of fandoms. So I've wanted to friend you for a while, but, like, was scared. Mind if I do now?

*offers cookies by way of bribe*
Christina: me- gg- moved by youfly_meaway on March 24th, 2006 10:58 pm (UTC)
*gladly takes the cookies, though they weren't really needed*

I don't often do this kind of thing to, so yeah, I can understand the feeling. I'm always scared to ask someone too, but yeah, of course I want to friend you! Your comment here is really sweet and I'd just love to get to know you. So I'm adding you right now :D

Hi! I've seen you around a lot and we worked together at one point in lilly_stillness so I'm wondering if you'd like to be friends? :D
