I might just be going insane

This winter break is seriously driving me bananas.

Is it wrong and incredibly selfish of me to feel irritated that a select few “friends” of mine have made very little effort (actually, none at all) to see me so far? I’ve been home 3 weeks now and I’m starting to feel like I’m wasting my life away because I’VE DONE ALMOST ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I don’t have any friends left in this town, and my “college” friends are scattered far and wide around the Chicago area. I’m seriously going to rot in this joint.

I’ll be perfectly honest. If I don’t ever go back to Champaign, I think I’ll be fine. In my head, I’m done with college. I’m over it. There’s no point in going back for one semester to see people I’ll never see again because obviously I’m not worth the effort to them.

It’s funny. Like I said, I’ve been home 3 weeks and haven’t really done anything but already I’m in need of another getaway.

I think I’m ready to go back to Costa Rica now! If only.

  1. Same thing happened to me last summer with my high school friends from home. Never mind that I’m abroad all year this year and next summer, my family is moving out of town (translate: might never see them again and if I do, it won’t happen frequently), I didn’t hear a peep from them till the end of summer and “oh my gosh I’m so sorry we didn’t hang out we’ll hang out next time!!”

    People. Ugh.

  2. I don’t think it is selfish, I’d be really annoyed if I came back and none of my friends wanted to hang out. If you’ve got a decent reason fine, but who is busy all the time on there summer break?

    My recommendation is to get in touch with people you know as an acquaintance and see if they’d like to meet up for a coffee or a shopping trip, sure it still means your friends suck but it’s a great way to make some new ones.
