Ugh I so wish I could live near all my friends. Just hard to at this age, everyone is flying around, travelling every where, getting married, etc.

this is fascinating: "Choosing the others you surround yourself with is one of the prime drivers of your emotional state."

a question arised while reading: how do we define a friend exactly? and then I wondered: depending on that definition, these results might be kinda depressive for many people; realising the perceived near-impossible task to gather / setup with their existing 'friends' in a 5-min walk radius.

which lead me to: but what if we (collectively) become better at turning our existing neighbors into friends?
