Apparently a kid I sort-of-knew* in high school may have offed himself. Unfortunately, I can't get any confirmation of this rumor beyond two people whose word I only marginally trust, so I may never know (Edit: It has supposedly been confirmed. Right, then). I should probably feel worse about this if it did happen - the whole 'loss of life, loss of potential' sort of thing. But in my minimal exposure to the guy he was kind of a jerk. So I am largely indifferent. A few people I know said he was an okay person, but if there is one thing the past has taught me it is that my friends have wretched taste in human beings, be they friends or lovers.

Though it does make me wonder about all the kids I just barely knew in high school - how they're doing, what they're doing. I wonder what happened to Iris, I wonder if Martha ever started a career with her art. I wonder if Daniel is still despised and possibly getting the shit beaten out of him regularly because he is a twerpy little asshole, I wonder if Elizabeth still thinks she's a lot more interesting than she really is**. I wonder how many of them are gone from car accidents, disease, or their own hand. I wonder how many of them have fallen in love. How many of them are starting families already (I know one is. Makes me feel old, it does). If any of them are saving lives, or learning how. If any of them are on their way to fame, or infamy. How many are on Livejournal, posting and commenting and never realizing that some girl they saw in the halls four years ago is writing and thinking about them.

*You know, 'knew' in that vague sense of 'I knew his name and there is a chance he probably knew mine, but we never actually spent non-school-mandated time together'.
**She had LJ disease, except apparently no LJ to vent it in - so she SPOKE IT ALOUD instead. Imagine for a second if everyone's livejournal was instead them standing next to you, talking about themselves. Yeah.
