I have never reblogged anything but I’ve haven’t been able to explain this uncomfortable feeling I’ve had for so long but you worded this so nicely …
Just a topic that I have to bring up. Every semester changes. The group of friends you hangout now can and most likely will be different the next semester and the semester after that. Not only is it because some people come and goes, but because each person’s lives changes.
I sit here thinking, why don’t I hangout with the group of people I did in freshmen year or last semester as much anymore? What I realized is that the environment has changed. I’m no longer in my dorms, so seeing friends or simply walking to their room isn’t as convenient anymore. Or living off campus, when a group of friends split up due to them graduating or simply them just interested in hanging out with other groups of people. Reflecting on the friends I hang out with, I noticed something. It’s not because I simply “lost interest” in hanging out with certain people. But more like, it is no longer convenient. What has now become convenient are friends I live with, friends I have classes with, friends with a similar major as me, friends in my fraternity, friends where our schedule coincidentally match with. Even having to “schedule” hangouts with friends have become a hassle. (some of you know this) By the end of the day, you just want to go home or to a certain someone. This semester I hardly got to “hangout”. I’m changing some bad habits because I’m scared for my career. But that’s another story.
There’s just so much to maintain in life: school, social life, sleep, family, money, etc. When you focus on a certain one, another one tends to drop. Sigh. Sorry to all my friends I haven’t hung out with for awhile (old roommates, mo’s house, csa, HoL, old dorm friends, etc). I truly do miss our times together.
