After I left high school I went on to a university different from all of my friends. Made new friends just to leave them all behind as I then moved to a city different from all of my friends. Made new friends just to move to another country. Made new friends and now I’ll probably have to go back to where I started. And all I know is that I feel so disconnected from everyone by time and space. I am beginning to wonder what “reality” will feel like. I wonder if that is why a part of me is not ready to go home, because it’s easier to not form connections and to use moving around as an excuse not to. And in this city, it’s very easy to not connect with people – there’s just so much to do solo that you don’t need to know your neighbours, colleagues or random strangers on the subway.
