i dunno if any of you have ever experianced this but i just came to realize that a lot of my friends have changed into people i would never picture them as.
first, my best friend who i've known since grade one. he was at one point a die hard skater and listened to punk religiously. now, he looks more like eminem than the skater i had always known. he's still my best friend but it's really screwed up.
second, a friend i had grown up skiing with. throughout racing we were always kinda close but lost touch after her parents split. the last time i saw her she was still the same person i'd remembered. now i hear from one of my friend's parents that she's pregnant and dropped out of school. i had always pictured her to be someone that would go all the way in school and land some killer job. now she's gonna be stuck with this kid for the rest of her life.
third, another buddy of mine who i'd also grown up skiing with. this kid used to be hardcore straight edge and wouldn't even be in the same room of you if you were drinking. now he parites more than a lot of people i know.
i really don't understand this. i understand that people change sometimes for the worst but these are all people that i've known for most of my life. i've seen friends throw their lives away without even thinking of the consequences of their actions. i know i can't expect someone to remain the same for their entire lives but this is really fucked up!
