"Everything passes. Nobody gets anything for keeps. And that's how we've got to live." Haruki Murakami.
I can't even begin to explain how true that quote is. At least as far as my own life goes. Social standing, friends, enemies, family members... they all flitter in and out of my life, sometimes as if they weren't even there in the first place, more often than not leaving destruction of some description or another in their wakes.
That's been my life for the last... going on five years. God, I can't even believe it's been that long or how much has happened since. It's sort of mind boggling when I actually stop to think about it. I still miss Lilly nearly every day. Duncan, Logan even though he's still sort of around on the periphery of my life. Things haven't been the same in over a year. Sometimes I really hate myself for missing him. Other days I hate him. It varies. There are other people I'm more than glad to see gone from my life. Logan's dad. My mom. Madison. They've brought absolutely nothing but pain in recent memory and who needs that?
At this point I'm pretty much adjusted to the fact that people come in and out of my life and I really don't have any control over that. And for the most part I'm okay with that. Until we come to my dad. I may be turning 21 in a few months, but that doesn't mean I want to see the day I have to live my life not at least talking to my dad every day any time soon.
