No… I am not ignoring you on purpose. Yes, I still think of you. I see something that reminds me of a funny moment I had with you and my heart smiles, but sometimes I can’t tell you because I’m rushing to class, scrambling to make it to work on time from another class, or writing an essay.
I am treasurer of one club, secretary of another, work several hours a week, take as many classes as I can and trying in the midst of that to find some time to breathe and get to know other people on campus. It can be overwhelming, but I manage it. I just truly wish you would understand that some days I can’t talk. This isn’t supposed to erode our friendship, and I know how much you miss me being around at home.
College is a time for people to find themselves and be as involved and as indulgent of those four or six years that they spend far from home figuring out what they wanna do. I am trying to make the best of this while also attending to my responsibilities, and I don’t always find the time to talk to you constantly.
I am always appreciative of the never-ending support that you give to me as a parent, as a sibling, and/or as a friend. You are always on my mind, even when I can’t show you or remind you of actual words or a text.
Please don’t be upset with me. I will give you all my time, love, and commitment when I’m back home – I promise. I am here, working my butt off in every single one of my endeavors to make each and every one of you proud of me.
