After a year of college under our belts I thought that having long distance friendships it would be easier, and in a way it hasn’t but I’m not going to lie, there are days where I just want one of my other best friends here with me. I love my friends here, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I’m watching Netflix and I just think “Lindsay would just go off about Shonda right now.” or I want to do something random and I think “If only Hannah was here.” or I need to someone to wack me into reality I think “If only Alex was around.” there are just certain places where you want specific people there for you and they can’t be unless it’s via text or skype or letter or whatever, it’s still not the same. It’s nice that I’m not far from Jade, if I really miss her I can just hop on the metro and head over to her so that’s not a big deal. On the other hand, it takes a lot of effort to make it home, or get to Boston, or Indianna, it’s a lot harder.
Sometimes I wish I could be there for my friends, it’s a lot harder in college. Whether it’s a breakup or something happens in their life and you just want to be there for them, it’s a lot harder. When you just want to fix everything and you can’t in the first place anyway, so you just want to be there and make it okay for them, it’s hard that you can’t fix it in the first place but it’s even worse that you can’t be there for them. It’s the same way I feel for my friends at school when I’m at home, I want to be there for them and fix everything, but I can’t. They can’t stop by my room when they’re feeling bad and vice versa. I can’t go hide in one of their rooms when I’m upset and want to hide from everyone else.
So here is a post dedicated to my friends all around the world because today I just miss them.
