The thing is right.
We’ve all been talking about how the people we’re going to miss most are the people we’re probably not going to stay in touch with. Not because we don’t get on, or because we don’t like each other but because that’s simply not how our relationship has worked. They’re the people you only see in class or at work, or bump into drunkenly on a night out. The people you’ve never felt the need to make an effort to see because you see them regularly anyway. So it doesn’t matter. But once you don’t share a classroom/workplace/night club with them, you’re probably not going to ever see them again.
And that’s sad. Because those are people who make you smile and who cheer your day (or not, as the case may be). They’re the familiar face in an unknown crowd.
But, at the same time, is it really that sad? Because I’m not sure I’d have wanted to know them at any other time or place. And I’m not sure I ever really want to know them outside of right now. Not en masse. Because it wouldn’t be the same.
None of us will ever be same as we are right now.
And right now has been pretty great to me.
