Why does it say "awkward silence"? We are just used to those everyday noises. We are used to peoples voices, underground and tram sounds, those loud traffic noises. While silence can be so calm and relaxing.
The day I realized that it was over was the hardest day of my life. Even after I left, I felt sad. Sad like I was about to attend my best friends funeral, but there was no funeral to attend. No goodbyes to be said, no closure. It was my awakening.
