This is from my Facebook feed. This guy, Russell, holy **** did we get along. We went to high school together, in the same grade/year, and we would have been best friends if he didn't have so many friends of his own already. We had the same interests, liked to spend our time and lives introverted and alone, we got each other's references that nobody else did, and over time nothing really changed. In the time I actually knew him (which was only a couple of months or so) we talked infrequently but got along very, very well; the school year ended with me spending my last two months of enrollment trying to drop out and him graduating with a 3.75 GPA and college already lined up, which I really am happy for, but am simultaneously left to wonder how things could have been different and if I actually wanted them to be. My 'best friend' at the time was no good for me and the second I stopped going to school we stopped talking, but I managed to NOT be blocked on Facebook by Russell here. So, how could things be different for the better of two parties in this case? Well, I can't make a complete answer all alone, but I think it would be nice if my time was more devoted to Russell. Friends are really what make high school, and nothing else, unless you're going to a really ******* great high school.
In the end nothing changes by me writing this 1500+ character paragraph on FunnyJunk, so I'll be going back to a meager attempt at living a meager life in a world not meant for meager lives in the first place. Cheers.
