Dear ex girlfriend,
Dear ex bestfriend,
Dear future me,
Dear past me,
Dear person I’m jealous of,
Dear person I had a crush on,
Dear [insert URL here],
So today was the first day since early May that I saw any of my friends. See, I don’t have friends back home - just memories - all of my friends are at school, 2 states away and I have been busy with multiple jobs; so busy that I haven’t been able to see friends at all for a few months.
Today, I had to go to my Student Senate meeting, being a stunt senator and all. At first, I was really reluctant, I don’t know why but I was. I texted Biggie and told her that I was coming up, and she said that we would hang out after. That made me happier to be going up - because after all I did see this as a huge inconvenience for me. I had to pay $25 for my train ticket up, spend 3 hours on a train (and same on the way back), and then get picked up by one of my future roomies (my BigBig bro) who I am not that close to. But as soon as I got in the car, something was different. I was able to hold a conversation and realized that this is exactly what I needed. I needed to see my Kappa family, even if it was just three of them. I needed to be out of my city.
After a 2.5 hour senate meeting, I went home with Biggie, Jud (other roomie/Biggies bf) and Jud’s parents. We had a good afternoon full of a lot of a laughs, and me being with one of my best friends.
But I realized something - I almost had to give all of this up. Because I didn’t care enough about school, I almost had to give my home up.
See, my university has become my home because I no longer feel at home back where my parents are. It’s nothing against my family, it’s just I have no friends left there - like I said, just memories that haunt me. All of my friends, all of my happiness, my future lives in my university.
Toady was a great day, and I thought I would share, because I learned a lot in just 7 short hours, and 2 long train rides.
