How strange. How can a person be lonely if they spend most of their day talking to people? As I was driving to Chipotle at 8 pm tonight, the thought crossed my mind. My roommate is on in-house 24-hour call at the hospital so tonight I finally get a chance to breathe from this chaotic week but I’m feeling this empty apartment–truly empty because all of the other students have gone home or away for the weekend.
I remember one of my schoolmates told me that this part of fourth-year was extremely lonely and I was afraid to find out if I would feel this too. I am happy that my classmates have significant others, friends, or family close by but what happens when you don’t have any of the above?
Usually, these posts have some sort of resolution but this post was meant to be honest that I don’t know exactly how to fix this feeling. I’m hoping it doesn’t last long.
