HELP, I Miss My College Friends!

It hasn't even been two weeks and I'm in deep sh!t with my attachments issues. I don't like change all that much, to an extent at least. I can usually cope with change because I typically just detach myself from everything so I don't miss it anymore. Unfortunately, this method doesn't work with everything so now here I am, less than two weeks later wishing that these photos could be recreated in real time.

I don't really know what you're supposed to do when you miss people that you can't easily visit. Send endless memes? Spam them with sixteen messages in a row about absolutely nothing? What about #AllTheGifs? Singing via text message does not give the same entertainment value or level of satisfaction as singing a duet in real life. Living that virtual friendship life isn't all that fun when you know what it's like to chill with your friends on the daily.

I feel like I'm cheating. I got to have lunch with one of my old roommates yesterday and tonight I'm going to hang out with another, even if it's only for a few hours. It's a really weird adjustment going from walking down the hall to say hello to driving from Buffalo to Cleveland, stopping by for a few hours before heading back. In the words of Chris Evans, I don't wike it.

This post was originally supposed to tackle how to deal with missing your friends, but I don't even know if it has truly hit me. Guaranteed it will hit me as I leave Cleveland on Monday after a long weekend here. A song will come on that will spark the tears and I'll spend the three-hour drive ugly crying. No unsolicited advice will be doled out today, just a few paragraphs of sentimentality and me reverting back to my emotional self. I should temporarily rename this blog Emotions According to Francesca. And now I have "Emotions" by Mariah Carey stuck in my head. Dammit.
