It never really hits you, until it does. Having my brother go away to college has been one of the most eye opening experiences in my entire life. My brother always used to be around, whether it be watching soccer with me, driving me to guitar on tuesday mornings or even just hanging out, he was always there. Now at the age of 14, I'm almost completely by myself in the house. I didn't really realize how much he meant to me until he was fully gone.
My brother and I have known each other for a long time and I'm really excited for when he'll be able to come back this Friday after his mid term exams. We'll be able to talk and the house will be full, just for that little bit more. I hope that we might be able to watch a movie or something, but you never know with our busy lives. If you have an older brother or sister, or someone whos not a permanent figure in your life, or anyone for that matter, love them while you still can.
