As regretful as it can be, to move forward and to surpass the expectation of your past can mean to leave the very essence of your existence behind. Bring on 2013!
Have you ever felt like everyone around you suddenly changed and you remain the same?
Or as though they changed gradually, but then some kind of realisation hits you,
that makes you aware that things aren’t the same any more?
I guess as we grow older, friendships grow apart.
Seeing each other frequently throughout the week turns into catching up every now and then. Daily chats become a brief once-a-week conversation. We start to know less and less about each other, our interests and personalities go separate ways.

Or maybe I just gotta stop being so determined and settle for someone as well… Which saddens me
