I’ve started feeling really freaked out about all my friends leaving. And about the fact that I’m going to be leaving them very soon. The two Ls are heading up to VT shortly, and that puts me into a total panic. Then Heather’s moving to England for three years. And then Meag and Steve are moving back to upstate NY.
Now, I know that I too am simply following in this vein and will be heading myself up to VT in August, but it’s still freaking me out. I feel like we’re all scattering to the four corners of the world and will never again see each other.
Married life brings babies, which in turn bring commitments. And when there are commitments you can’t just pick up and head off for a weekend of fun and smoking pot and playing boardgames with friends. Instead there are diaper bags and screaming babies and really NEEDING to worry about your jobs and such. It’s terrifying!
And while I’m the first to admit that I’m totally jumping on this bandwagon of marriage/babies/commitment/moving away … I’m still going to miss my friends.
I guess the thing about it is that I don’t ever see them when they live within a half-hour drive of me, so how am I ever going to see them when they’re farther away?
