real friends.

tl;dr
good friends are good. bad friends are not friends.

Everyone has friends. Close friends. Close-enough friends. “Hey- i think i recognize you” friends. And everyone slowly works their way up if they want to put the effort or they’re happy just where they are. I don’t like the “networking” mentality that a lot of people feel the need to practice at university so i try to limit making friends just for the sake of having them recognize me. It’s not worth my time and not worth the awkwardness of not being able to talk to them if we’re stuck in a room together.
