When I moved from Victoria to Queensland after high school, I had a going away party. I wasn't going to be returning to Victoria for any length of time for at least three years. Turns out its been pretty much permenant, and looks to be staying that way.
It wasnt a big party, but still only four people showed. I felt like crap.
Im hosting a sales party at my place this coming Saturday. I dont know many people outside of work. But I've invited pretty much everybody I have gotten to know since I started. Even though I've gotten a few yes's, I still can't shake the feeling that everybody is going to forget and nobody will show. Or worse. One very kind soul will show and feel sorry for me.
