Growing Apart

One of the hard things about "going off to school" is growing apart from people that you used to be close to. It's something that I've had to adjust to this year. It's sad because it makes you realize people you were close to were only your friend out of convenience. The effort it takes to call someone once every week or two really isn't that hard. I've done my best to keep up with friends that have moved and gone to other schools. But when someone doesn't reciprocate those actions it can be hurtful. However the silver lining in the cloud is that there are so many amazing people at Cal. I met a girl this semester and became friends based on the fact we had a class together last semester even though we never talked before. ESPM classes are great because even though it's my 2nd semester I recognize 5-15 people in each of my classes.

I remember when I changed high schools that it took two years for me to really get to know people. I managed to do what took two years in high school in one semester. It's sad that people are graduating this spring because I've met some awesome people and there going to be gone soon. Oh yah and what else makes ESPM classes even more awesome is that last week my professor brought a machete to class. That’s right not only was there a giant machete, there was durian fruit to be hacked open and handed out. Just when my professor's lecturing was getting dry she made it up.

Real friends will always be by your side no matter what. The trial of growing apart will separate the people you love and the people you thought you loved.
