At a loss...
Yesterday, I had to deal with something which I have had the privilege of not having to encounter in my life up to this point. I had a friend who I've known since High School die.
I've dealt with loss when it comes to distant family and acquaintances, but never someone who I knew well enough to have it seriously bother me. I'm at a loss on what to do. It seems so unreal. This place seemed like the only place I could even write about something like this, despite my absence for the last year or so. I know nobody reads anything I post anymore, but I kinda just need to get it out. It sucks.
Although it wasn't completely sudden, for he had been battling cancer for almost a year and a half, it is still the worst possible news to hear. The last time I saw him, he seemed to be doing great, and actually came into my store (Gamestop) and was talking to me about all the games he was looking forward to playing this fall. I think that makes it even worse.
The whole incident made me think about a lot of things. First and foremost, how spontaneous life can be sometimes. I hate the fact that I have lost touch with this community, and the group of people who I would have considered some of my closest friends. I'm going to try and start posting here again and perhaps re-build some of the friendships I used to have, because, that is not something to be squandered or taken lightly.
