I never considered my new friends better than or replacements for my old friends. I was unsure that any of them really liked me for a while. But now, I don’t even know if I can trust a few of them. I miss my Tucsonan friends more than anything. I really miss the old days when… I dunno, when we would talk every day. And when we lived 3 minutes away from each other. I miss drawing on notes in Math, and making fun of Mr. Gremel, and just knowing that I could call someone at 2 AM and they’d be there for anything. I have one person out here who I completely trust, other than family. He’s the only reason that I don’t want to leave this state. If I didn’t have him, I’d so be back home in an instant.
I miss my mom too. I can’t believe I’ve gone so long without so many important people in my life.
