I’ll be Back Soon
Leaving your friends ain’t that easy.
I was born and raised in the Philippines. I have lots of great friends whom I shared a lot of good memories with. I’ve been attending the same school for years, going to the same places with the same persons, which I enjoyed. But when the news that we’re moving to Canada reached me, my emotions were every where. I was excited because its what we’ve always wanted but at the same time negative emotions flooded me. It was really hard to think about leaving the people you’ve spent half of your life with and move to a different place you’ve never been to. It’s a scary place to be for a teenager, not knowing what will to happen to you, your world being turned upside down.
A few months before we left, I tried hiding from my friends because I don’t want to hurt them and spent every moment we are together counting the days we have left before we leave. But that didn’t worked out well, when they found out, about it, they were pissed, which is understandable. Weeks before our move to Canada, one of my friends sent me an email, asking when will be our scheduled flight because they would like to see me before I go. Then the day came, but only two of my friends made it, it was really sad but i was happy a the same time. As i bid farewell, I promised them that I will never forget them and I will be back.
Now that I am here in Canada, I still think about them. I miss them so much and being in a place that you know nothing about only makes it worse. I may not be able to have the chance to talk to them as much as I do before but, there;s only one thing for sure. They are the friends that I will treasure forever.
