"You get a strange feeling when you're about to leave a place, like you'll not only miss the people you love but you'll miss the person you are now at this time and place because you'll never be this way ever again."

All throughout our lives, we interact with people. We hold doors open for those behind us. We thank the man who puts our grocery bags in our carts. We get new roommates that we've never met before. No matter how hard we try, there's not escape from people. But every once in a while, you meet someone who comes into your life and makes a real difference. In some cases, it's a number of people all at once.

However, with every hello, there must be a goodbye. Right? In a sense, yes. But in others, no.

"It's not goodbye it's see ya later"

Life is simply a story that we decide to write. And just like a story in a book, we have characters, settings, and moods that are constantly changing. Sometimes, when a character leaves, it seems like things will never be the same again. Characters return though. They might leave for a chapter or two, continuing their own story line, but they'll come back, if that's what the author wants.

"You'll come back, when they call you"

I am the author of this story. I know what I want. Even though things have changed recently doesn't mean that they'll be that way forever. "Just because everything's changing doesn't mean it's never been this way before." 

So for all those of you who have helped me in my life, especially recently, I thank you. For those I may not see for a while, I look forward to seeing you again. The people we associate with are the ones that make us who we are, whether or not we see them all the time. Thank you for making me me.
