Take it from me. It's better to keep quiet about plans until they are certain to happen. I thought a number of things would happen last year and they didn't. It's okay, because we are keeping busy here in the meantime. This has been a year of uncertainty and it's my fault for getting too excited over the possibilities of change and talking a little too much about it to a few too many people. Here's what some of my conversations of late have been like.
Friend: You're still here?
Me: Yup, still here.
Friend: I thought you were going there!
Me: Well, umm, *enter me rambling about a couple of the reasons why things didn't work out, because I give way too many details and can't give vague, straight forward answers for the life of me. Someone please help me!*
Friend: Ok, well, see ya later!
If we've had this conversation, I am so very sorry!
Here is me not talking about future plans anymore. I'm not saying I don't have something brewin', but you won't be hearing from me about it. Hey, I'm just doing us all a favor in saving us from having these painfully awkward conversations in the future.
