Tonight will most likely be the last night the Seekers crew hangs out for a long time to come. By this weekend many of us will have started college. It has really been an adventurous summer with these guys. Obviously not the type of adventure I wanted for myself, but there’s a certain comfort level with them. It has really been fun and I’m looking forward to spending more time with the half of us who are not going to college or are staying in the city. Over the past few months, they’ve really grown to be my family. While I was having dinner with Allison last night, she mentioned that I actually kept in touch with a lot of the Seekers people, both alums and current members/leaders. I think that’s true to a certain extent; I don’t like losing close friends because we don’t attend the same school anymore. But it seems like a lot of the people who used to be close haven’t spoken to each other in a long time. Compared to maybe just last year, a lot has actually changed.
So when I was in Flushing for dinner today, I ran into at least 10 people that I knew; 7 of them from school. I’m not a fan of running into people I know outside of the environment I usually see them in, and today it was like every other time I picked my head up I saw someone I knew. Crazy.
It’s actually getting pretty late but I feel like there’s something I need to accomplish before I can rest peacefully. I don’t know what it is that I’m “supposed” to do, but until then, I’m gonna be up. Current EST, 1:14 AM. I have to be up in 6 hours. Lovely.
