Today marked the beginning of my preparation for my camping and hiking trip.  I spent most of the day playing around with my sister’s dehydrator to make lots of lightweight, preservable food for the hiking portion of my trip.

While I was cutting, seasoning, and preparing everything, I had a lot of time to think.  I really haven’t had many lasting friendships.  Part of the reason is the fact that I move around so much.  It also seems I don’t understand other people enough to be a good friend.  I don’t understand what other people need.  I never know what to say or do when someone is sad.  I’m often brutally honest, often when people don’t need to hear the brutal truth.  I know there are people out there who appreciate someone like me.  The problem is, how do I find them?  By the time most people get to my age, they already have friends.  I know the best way to get friends is to be one, but I often wonder if I truly know how to be one.

I found  this video today and it seemed to take a lighthearted approach to what I was thinking.  I could use a friend.
