After seeing Ley's blog and the segment about friends~ And after so much hassle this afternoon; I just felt that I would whine a little here?
It is the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter...
Some of us in class have intents, on leaving SG for China? (TAIPEI Too!) For 6months.
Half a year; 6months.
Whichever way you say it; it's still a long period away from home.
Home, where your family is
Home, where your friends are
Home, where you're most comfortable
I never knew what it was like, to be in the position of some of my "foreign" friends; to leave home, and study; work. Carve out new memories.
At least, we'll get to come home, After less than a year;
After weird food, weather, people;
Some of my friends are already overseas, and indeed, it feels weird, talking to them after a little while, be it on Facebook or MSN. Something, seem to be missing...
Rachel (YEE), is going away to Boarding School in America for her Junior and Senior years, and she's going to scout around in the States for close to a month this coming Dec.
In cell, we feel the loss already.
She's going away next September, and yet; we're afraid. Of what the seperation means.
True, there may be Skype, MSN, Facebook, blogs, whatever new technology you find, but nothing beats a touch, a hug, hearing laughters, so joyous, so LOUD, they ring in your ears.
One, may be independent; but we ALL need our friends.
As cliche as it may sound, to help us, to lend us a shoulder when we are down, when we cry... Someone to be there, to share our laughters in the theatre, a joke...
True, we may make new friends, have new experiences... But we're human afterall. We are ALL reluctant to make changes in our lives isn't it?
