When stuff that is good ends, it sucks! This is true for just about anything in life, from great meals to TV shows to extracurricular activities to relationships to friendships to a good book. Presently, I am talking about a hobby that shall remain nameless (to protect...well, ME!)
I have had the most fun with this group in particular than I have ever had. They are all into it 100% and it makes worlds of difference. When you do a hobby with people who are half-assed about it, everyone suffers. When people are unscrupulous about things, it ruins the experience for everyone else. When some people don't take the hobby as seriously as others, the group loses something.
I have had this hobby much of my life, in different forms, and I have rarely found a group that has the cohesive interest that this one does. Everyone is there for the same reason, to have a great time while participating 100%. People are nice, they care, they enhance the experience for everyone there with their enthusiasm.
And in a month, it will all be over. I am pretty bummed about it. I have lots of memories, new friends and pictures too. But I will be sad to have to find a new group. Of course, the new group will have the reputation to live up to and it will be hard to do. So I will have to be open minded about it.
Basically when a good thing ends, it is always hard to say goodbye!!!
