I’m lonely. I have this problem where I work long hours, but I don’t actually see anyone outside of work. I don’t know anyone who lives in my local area, and I miss being able to actually just… see people. Now, if I want company, someone has to travel a long distance to visit me, which means they have to stay over at mine and spend time alone, bored, while I am working. That also means I can’t just say hi to someone for a few hours and then do some work… if I’ve asked someone to make the effort to visit me, it’s only fair that I find the time to spend with them… but really, I should be working.
I sort of wish I still lived in my university town, where there was always someone to hang out with at any time of the day or night.
