From missing to being missed

When I was with Autoblog, I was a regular at the local

coffeeshop. Now that I have left, I've discovered I
not only miss spending those hours there, but the
employees missed me, too. Several tonight told me how
they'd look up at closing looking for me and suddenly
realize that I'm not there.

I remember distinctly that I wanted to travel after
high school. I wanted breath of experiences, not
depth. Start in one country, check out a few sites,
then travel to the next one that evening. Repeat in
next place. I realize I felt the same way with people.

Now I've discovered I'm most happy with a few familar
items: friends, places, books, etc. I haven't closed
myself to new experiences; I'm just not inclined to
seek them out like I used to. With such thoughts, I
now wonder if I'll be scared of change like I've seen
many adults when I was young. That, or go the opposite
direction and buy a convertible and find myself a 20
year old twink.

  • I can relate to this. I travelled across Europe with a backpack. I can't even comprehend doing this now.

    I have always had trouble meeting the right people. When I was younger I would devote myself to new friends at the expense of old ones. Now I value people more but cling too much. I think its a middle age thing. ^__^
