I’ve had friends who’ve been abroad for long periods of time. Few friends spent time in UK for ½ year each. And then in Peru too. And a friend was in France for a year, studying. I saw her only once during that year, when she visited Finland during the winter break. Now she’s been back in Finland since late spring and it feels like she was never gone. The year went by so fast – and nothing really changed during her absence. Today it was time to say goodbye to another one. Someone who I didn’t even know a year ago.
Actually, thanks to him. I’ve woken up from this “hybernation” that seems to be affecting all adults. Instead of thinking about graduation (from Uni) as “the end of my life” (a.k.a starting the long lasting working life) I’ve got a thousand other plans. I’m going to live my life and explore the world. Full-time office work (as an IT professional) can wait for a little longer.
Like with everyone in my life who are “going away”, I just think: maybe we’ll meet again. Maybe too much has changed when we do. Or maybe everything carries on as we were never apart.
Ascend may you find no resistance
Know that you made such a difference
All you leave behind will live to the end
The cycle of suffering goes on
But memories of you stay strong
Someday I too will fly and find you again
-Blackbird by Alter Bridge
Have you ever “said goodbye” to someone leaving (for college/another country etc.)?
What song is your #1 song to listen to at the moment :)?
