Missing My Friends


When I was still in college... Oh this is cliche, but
When I was in college, I did have the best time of my life.

I got to taste a bit of adulthood. I learned to live independently, my parents slowly unleashed me from their sphere of over-protection. I had a valuable social life, balanced with my budding professional path, but on top of all, I still owned free time.

In which I used, mostly to watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Pic's from here.

I was so crazy about this serial back then. When I was still staying at my TV-less rented room, their episodes had always been the only thing I watched on my laptop, to accompany my meal time. Not enough with that, whenever I returned home and despite the cable TV provided, I still preferred watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Then my university period ended. My freelance year started and to fill all the spare time, I stood by Warner TV at 9 a.m. sharp - 9 a.m. and still at home, what a beautiful life I had back then, no?? - to never miss F.R.I.E.N.D.S., no matter how often and how familiar I am with whatever episodes aired.

I kept replaying and replaying the episodes, from "The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate" until "The Last One", or random ones which were my favorites, anything. Until I began working like a normal guy, and started losing my free time.

Oh yeah, real professional life has been drifting me away from maximizing my me time. Me time with my F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I used to be so close to all six of them. Backing Monica up for how weird her obsession is, mimicking Chandler's gesture, being on Rachel's side for her "on a break" issues, holding myself back from hitting Ross because he's such a pain in the ass, also from hitting Joey due to his idiotic acts, and laughing my ass off of Phoebe's natural innocence. They're the best, yet I haven't seen them in a while.

Until last night, they appeared in my sleep. Clearly, undoubtedly.
I'm not exaggerating here, I did dream about F.R.I.E.N.D.S. last night.

I'm not sure which episode, because I was in there. As a part of their gang. I arrived in New York and all six of them wanted to take me out. Rachel brought me to some lunch - we had grilled cheese, I remembered so clear because by the time I woke up, I was super craving for some bread meals - and Monica played tag with me on the park. Then Chandler wanted to bring me shopping, and Joey showed us this store with crazy ass discounts. Phoebe was there already and with her random ideas, she challenged all of us in a race to get the best discounted stuff. It was fun, really. And Ross, well, I forgot where he was, I don't really like him anyway.

All of us strolled by Central Park on Upper East Side, walking and laughing together like real friends do. Then we called it a day, everybody returned to their places and I returned to real world. I got up from bed, with a big smile on my face. And a bit sadness too, because... Dreaming that could possibly mean two things.

One,
I missed America and that's why I ended up in The Big Apple on my dream.

It's probably true, really, giving the fact that by this time two years ago, I was in New York. And I'm pretty sure for the upcoming two weeks I'll subconsciously be in my deepest commemoration because, sigh, should I say this again, America was the best trip so far.

Two,
I just missed F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Period.

I was still too attached to them a year ago, never spent a day without at least one line from anybody in the show, and today, it's been six months since the last time I heard the opening theme with that iconic fountain and sofa. It's a shock.

It's like you've been in a relationship with somebody you loved six time greater than anybody else you ever loved, then you gradually lose contact with them yet you denied, and when they appeared in your dream, you realized,

That you've been missing them too bad.

Well.

I was so crazy about this serial back then.
I still am, only different is, my time now is limited.

But what kind of a friend I am,
Deserting them just because I'm busy?

I'll start watching them again,
I'll never leave anymore, I promise, because
They'll be there for me too
