Imagine for a minute that this past summer you've made the most friends you've ever had. They're only online, but they're still friends.
Now, imagine that since you've met them, you've been in contact with them all day, every day for the past few months.
And suddenly... They're not anymore. School starts, you're the only one who's graduated and not in college at the moment, your job doesn't need you for the next month and you can't work up the motivation to actually do anything or even leave your own house because you have nothing to do.
That'd be me right now, and likely for the next 10 months.
