I'm being forced to choose between my friends and my lifestyle.
I've lived with the same 2 people for about 5 years now, but I've known them even longer. We hop from lease to lease, renting out houses in the podunk college town where we grew up. We're great friends- loyal, giving, empathetic... at least to each other. We could live the rest of our lives together and end up like that trio of old dudes from Cowboy Bebop. But, they're also nuerotic, like to manipulate people into spending time with us, and messy/lazy- I mean piss in an empty 2-Liter and leave it under the desk for who knows how long... I fear the thought of going into their rooms.
Cut to the begging of this summer, we had just signed on for a second year at our current place. A proposition was made that and the end of this lease, we should move to the closest city for higher paying jobs, wider options for entertainment and food, etc. I do not like this idea. I'm a hippie hearted fool who wants to build an earthship and grow my own food someday.
Basically- If I go with them, I don't think I can really be happy... just distracted. And if I don't go with them, I fear that I'll never find a kinship as meaningful as what we have.
