"Everything is changing, and I can't stop it" Vin said in mistborn. Sorry if that's a bit of a misquote, I don't have the direct quote here in front of me.
I... let me start out explaining my vague opening of a post after about a month of "I'll be posting again!" *doesnt post*
I got a job. Yay. Actually, I like it a lot.
Also, my brother moved to North Carolina a week and five days ago. I found out exactly two weeks ago, and he had a bus ticket by then and he left Saturday.
And... he's still my brother, he's called and everything, but... I miss him. And that's why life's been busy and also why... well, everything is going to change and I can't stop it. And I'm scared.
I know this is probably depressing and sad and... well, yeah, but I had the most amazing red fury dog named Max. And... he had to be put to sleep in October. It's been about 9 months but... I still miss him. He was old and grouchy and... gosh dang I miss him. And I miss my brother too, and... I graduated, like two months ago and that scares me too, especially because, well... there's so many friends whom I love so much and... we're all leaving, all going our separate ways. And I don't want to lose them. And I'm just... not sure what to do.
But, as in the song "The Call" by Regina Spektor, "just because everything's changing, doesn't mean it's never been this way before. All you can do is try to know who your friends are as you head off to the war". And... I guess I will. I'll tell y'all how it goes and... I'll try to be here too.
And to finish the mistborn quote, "Well then mistress, enjoy it". And I guess I'll do that too.
Trying to enjoy it
