Remember When We Were Friends. . .

Let me set the scene. . .

The year was 2008. The place was Sharky's. The night was every Thursday. Do you remember those days? I do, and I miss them. Not necessarily so much the time and place, but that I got to hang out with people who I considered a positive force in my life: you. Not the singular you, but you, the group, as a whole.

I understand that life situations and relationships adapt and change in a strange sort of life ebb and flow, and that time becomes more precious as we age and find special people to fulfill our lives. It is only natural to want to spend as much time as possible with those that we hold most dear to us, and for me those people are you.

Maybe a lot of the problem has been my fault. I'm kind of a big kid, I talk too loudly and too often, and I know that I can be annoying as all get out, but I love you guys and it is really hard for me to get through the weeks with nothing to look forward to. A lot of you have each other to go home to, which I love and think is absolutely amazing. I don't have that. You guys are my outlet and my escape. I miss you all.

Please remember that we were friends. . .


  1. I can relate to this.

    I think a lot of people just don't know how to find the right kind of balance to handle balancing time with significant others, time with work people, time with friends, time with family, etc. It can be tough to make it all work but it can be done without leaving people out in the cold.

  2. This is definitely true. I think that people become overwhelmed with the perceived "lack" of time. The reality is that there is plenty of time if you know how to use it, not saying that I do, just that it can be done.
