Something to look forward to?

The problem: My vacation is over. I'm back to my daily grind. Suddenly I find myself asking, What now?

This was my event of the summer, if not the year. Whenever work got shitty, or I just got bored or lonely, I just kept thinking that I would be hanging out with friends in a few short months, weeks, days.

But that precious time came and went, and now I'm at a loss. I have no idea when we will all be together again. What do I have to look forward to?

The symptoms: I'm not sure what to call the feelings— Anxiousness? Loneliness? Restlessness? Has anyone else come down with these symptoms already? Or is it just my own symptom of being isolated in Missouri? (Also, is this too damn angsty for a blog? Guess angst is another one.)

The solution: We need to plan out next SadBear get-together ASAP. Whaddayasay, fellas? Let's get planning.

In the meantime (for a temporary cure), we should all listen to (The Supreme Genius of) King Khan and the Shrines all day, every day. I challenge anyone to listen to "Land of the Freak" and not forget all of their troubles with the simple shake of their booty.

I like the mandatory annual meet-up that Tony's teacher (or whoever, I forget) started with his college friends.

I told Jack on our layover in Atlanta that I get together often enough with certain people, but it's too rare that we have so many of the gang together at once and that we capture that glorious youth again for a while.

Anyway, Kevin Barnes touched on this:

"I'd like to marry all of my close friends, and live in a big house together by an angry sea."

Haha, Econ I was about to post the same Kevin Barnes line.

I'm pretty certain most of us will see each other, a few a year, and sporadically. That's just how things go.

But, I do think there is something to be said when it comes to trying to all come together once every other year, if possible.

My best friends graduated a year before me, and Econ's best friends graduated after him...so as far as I'm concerned I'll probably skip any Hillsdale reunion in hope that you guys would want to start one of our own...we could even incorporate other cool people we've met (like Lauren Chester, Drew, and Bill).

Erin votes affirmative for an annual reunion also.
