Everyone I meet, disappears in my life. All my friends in junior year left. My co called college friends left cause of some stupid fucking shit and they suck. My actual college friends are in bumblefuck towns that I cant get to. And now my best friend is moving away. I fucking hate growing up. Id rather be getting upset at falling and scraping me knee then all of this bullshit
