I have been friends with this guy, Justin since school started this year. He's a junior, I'm a freshman... well after a while, I started to like him... alot. I liked him for his smile... it always made me melt. He was also in a local band, and I would always watch them play... I still have one of his songs stuck in my head. He began to be the reason I would wake up every morning... he made me happy. Well about a month ago, I noticed that we hadn't been in class for about a week or so. I asked his friend, Jesse where Justin was. He told me Justin had gotten kicked out of school b/c he skipped school too much... I knew this had to be true... Justin cared more about music than anything else... he is like me... music is our life... well anyways... I haven't seen him in over a month. I miss him terribly... I cry about him so much... we sat by each other in geometry, and it's hard for me to look at that chair and realize he's never gonna be there again. He is going to alternative school now, and I haven't seen him since... it upsets me so bad... b/c he was Justin.. he was my everything... the light in my life is gone... he was such a good friend to me... he would take time to talk to me about anything... but since I'm 14, I don't have a license... I can't just go over to his house... and he doesn't have a phone... I dunno what to do! All my friends are telling me to get over it, he's just a boy... but that's not what he is.. he's Justin...

I miss my friends. I miss all of them - they're currently 22 hours away by plane. These are people I've known for years - a guy I've known since I was 5, and people I've gone through hell with. People I'd trust with my life.
You're not alone.
How do I deal? Phone, email, and hopefully once I get my fat *** into gear, letters!
Seriously, write to him. Ask him to hit a pay phone or something. (Well, not literally) Even ask your parents to drop you off...
Missing friends is hard, I'm away at university and I'm 18 hours drive away from my old friends. If you want to see him, why don't you go to see him play again? Or, you could drop by, do you have public transit? Does he live close enough to walk or bike to? Or do you have mutual friends that could arrange for all of you to get together. Good luck
