Letters to Nobody

I would like to take a moment and speak directly to a few people who I used to be close to, but for whatever reason we had a falling out or simply lost contact. I won’t name them individually, but I believe they’ll know who I’m talking to if they ever stumble upon this blog… (Each individual paragraph is meant for a different person.)

We had a lot of good times together, didn’t we? The weekends we shared for six months were amazing. I’ll never forget our epic adventures, or the accompanying mix playlists. I don’t hold any grudges about what happened, just a lingering curiosity as to why it ended like it did. I guess we both knew at one point that it was doomed to end… The conversations stopped, things grew increasingly awkward, and stress from the outside made it all fall down like a tower of playing cards. I still think we can be friends and not just mere acquaintances stuck in a limbo of awkward-casualties. I’ll always remember us getting kicked out of the Crowne Plaza by that weird guy in a purple shirt…

Oh, the lists. The glorious lists. There are two lists, to be exact: The list of best friend requirements and “The List”, a list of things I have to do to make up for missing an important event. And the nicknames. 98 degrees is probably the oddest nickname I’ve been given, and that’s probably why I had to wear a bag over my head to keep the FCC from getting all up in my grill. (haha) I’ve attempted to patch things up between us in the past, but nothing panned out. I know you probably would be happy to leave things the way they are, and that’s fine, I just want to know why it ended. It was abrupt and it seemed to come out of nowhere. I would like to patch things up eventually, but I’m also willing to accept that things will never be the same again. I’ll keep scrounging eBay for yellow power ranger pencils in the meantime…

Dude! What happened? We used to hang out all the time. Remember the stupid videos we used to make on Josh’s phone? Or the video we made where Josh threw his phone at your wall? Those were some good times. Failing epically to make the soccer team freshman year was a buzzkill, but it was still fun to play soccer and run in the mornings during that summer. We seem to be going in different directions in the future, but we still need to stay in touch. Maybe one day we’ll get a band together…

So that’s it. I don’t know why I felt the need to do that, but after the events of today it seemed necessary. Speaking of today’s events, I had the day off from work. Aside from getting my hair cut, nothing major really went down (lack of money= lack of stuff to do). Anyway, I gotta get some sleep now so I can get up early for work tomorrow. Check back tomorrow for more blog goodness.
