26 more days to see people and places I will not be able to see as easily as I could right now. It is interesting process to go through. If you knew you only had a set amount of time left in an area, what would you do?
For me, I care only about seeing a few people. It’s the places I will miss. I have been a very solitary person for most of my life. I have always been a third wheel in most cases. The people I leave behind, have other people in their lives. I see them maybe once or twice every few months. So, if I leave, no biggie.
But the places – the places I have been to have more meaning to me. It is not that I take my friends for granted, because that is not what I am trying to say. For me, the places have always been what I could depend on. Museums inspire my creative mind. Restaurants satisfy my cravings. Theme parks make the troubled thoughts go away, at least for a while.
Don’t get me wrong. I will miss my friends. I will miss my family. But I will be back.
