At the end of the month, two of my best gal-pals will be leaving Japan. Ah, sadness!
Since I live in Japan, people are always coming and going. Nothing is constant here. Nothing!
It seems that when I meet wonderful, interesting people, who enrich my life, they have to leave. It's like there's a revolving door and all my friends have to walk through it eventually. I hate the damn revolving door! I want to find the f-ing revolving door and blow it up to smithereens. I'm tired of the goodbyes. I'm tired of letting go of those who I enjoy spending time with.
Okay, okay. My friends aren't dying, they're just moving, but still. Things will never be the same again. I'm sure we'll keep in touch via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and Christmas cards, but it still won't be the same. I won't be involved in their daily lives. I won't be meeting them for drinks at our local watering hole. I won't be meeting them for our weekly Saturday run and breakfast. I won't be hanging out with them.
Change sucks! I hate change! Someone please make the change stop! Please!
