You quickly learn that you can in fact do without a lot of things. I don’t mind the things, habits, or the luxurious of home. You find ways around them. [village has shown me this statement is DUMB you can’t find way around crappy food] For the most part you can find a substitute for anything- or you find a way to get what you are missing. [this isn’t true…. there is no substitute for chicken.] But what you can’t substitute or find a way around is people. I miss people. [this is still true]
I miss my family. They do a great job of keeping in touch. I am glad that took the couple of hours to show my mom twitter, Facebook, and instagram before I left. She keeps me up to date and just likes to talk. I think if I moved home tomorrow I would be up to date on the comings and goings of summerville. Both my parents always have an encouraging word- and I know they miss me a lot. I miss them too.
But the when it comes to conversations- I miss the person I talked to the most. My roommate, best friend, and person. If you aren’t knowledgeable to the term person- it’s a Grey’s Anatomy reference between Yang and Meredith. This little picture kind of describes the relationship….and I would, help her hide a body.
It is hard to go from talking everyday- almost all day to talking once a week if I am lucky and scattered messages, tweets or random instagrams. You might ask, what could you possibly talk about all day- everyday. That is the joy- anything. Today we got to catch up- and for about 15 minutes we chose to talk about what fictional world would we want to walk into. And because we are best friends- we both said Harry Potter- think about it- you can’t pick who you can be, but you pick the world- so a superhero world would be a bad pick because the chance that you are the superhero is slim to none- and now you are a human living in a crappy city that needs a superhero. You are guaranteed to die.
Bottom line: I miss Brooke and my family!
