by the way

(Sorry if my last post was sort of a downer.) If people want to keep using this blog as a way to stay in touch after graduation, I would be more than happy to maintain it and blog myself. Otherwise, I will probably just let it go the way of the do-do bird. :)

No one posts here anymore

Sad...but understandable. We are all moving on, sort of. Can you feel the ties to Christendom life, to your friends, sort of wavering? Well, I have been away for a bit so that is probably why I feel a sort of disconnection. I know it needn't be that way--to a point. That is, I could do a better job of keeping in touch with people, especially my closest friends. However, there is a way in which our relationship has objectively changed. It is a long-distance relationship now. I am a friend that one talks to on the phone or writes a letter to, not a friend one sees and communicates with in person. It is an objective lessening of friendship, which I think is rightly lamented. That is what gives you that pang of, whatever it is, bittersweet-ness about graduation. You know you will have to move on and it is good that you will do so. At the same time, you will miss your friends...
