So, um, yeah...

Let’s be real, if I really wanted to I probably could have gotten her a really fancy farewell card and present that was so elaborate that she’d never forget it. But if I’m to be honest with myself here, I’ve been running away from the fact that she’s leaving in a few days. And though I know that she’s only going to Sydney and she might even be coming back during the breaks, it feels as though part of my life is already missing. I was never excited to finish high school. While I watched others happily chat about what exciting things they would do after school, I would stare blankly and feel sad. Sad, not because I don’t want to move on in life but sad because I feel as though all the hard work and effort I have put into making lasting friendships may suddenly all wither away. Fact – I’m the sort of person who, if given the right circumstances, would just stay at home and never interact with people. I’m not saying that I’m a depressing person, it’s just that I like being alone.

 

Maybe I could still have time to get her something. Or make her something really memorable. It’s a really wonderful thought but I’d never have the courage to give it to her. I guess I’m a bit like the character Blake from Monty Oum’s web series, RWBY. Too afraid to face her situations, fleeing instead. Even her semblance matched her personality. Yes. I’m just avoiding everything. Part of me just hopes this doesn’t have to happen.

 

Friends, you never quite know which moment you move on from ‘strangers’ to ‘acquaintances’ to ‘friends’ or more. It’s one of those things that we, if not, I take for granted in life. Before you know it, you’re relying on them to help you, cheer you up and keep you happy every day in life. She’s one of those people to me. When she told me she was going to Sydney to study I kind of just said “wow, that’s cool”. It wasn’t until after when I was about to go to bed that it really hit me. That, she would be leaving. Thud. Right in the chest. Part of me just couldn’t comprehend what it meant for her to be leaving. Does this mean I won’t be seeing her smile? Or hearing her voice? Or be doing random things together? It’s always after something has been taken away that one feels the loss. And right now, I’m already feeling it.

 

She’s done so much, bought me so many little gifts but I’ve always been lacking in return. Perhaps I am a bad friend. Even now, as I write this, there is another person out there buying her a gift. I am a terrible person at saying goodbyes. I’m sorry. But this is not a farewell. This is a “I’ll see you again”. This is a “I’ll be waiting”. This is a “Welcome back”. This is what I hope it will be because the story of our friendship has no last page. “Then it doesn’t have to end. I hate endings”.
