I never thought I would miss an area so small, so much. I’ve realized that I really miss Columbia. It was a beautiful town, with lots of foliage. It had a surprising amount of diversity, even if it could have had better, and I knew where I was. I knew my places, like where I wanted my frozen yogurt from, what streets were where, my favorite clubs and bars, my favorite things.
But most of all, I miss the friends I made there. I miss running into friends going out, or at random places that you never expected to see or to remember. The people I knew I had beside me and the people I knew I wanted with me. Columbia gave me so much, and I miss it so dearly.
