But I Love it When You Read to Me and You Can Read Me Anything
It's a bit too serendipitous that while I'm writing this post that the season eight Scrubs finale is playing the same day I'm preparing for going to a new school tomorrow. If you're (for some reason I can't comprehend) unaware of what episode, or even what show, I'm talking about I'll explain: in the finale of season eight our lead, and most beloved, character Dr. John Dorian (J.D.) is leaving Sacred Heart Hospital (be closer to his son, aaw, J.D.).
Sacred Heart was where he cemented friendships, met the love of his life, learnt major life lessons, gained a father figure (in the form of one of TV's best doctors: Dr. Perry Cox, who made the angry rant an art form) and had a baby. And as a show of J.D.'s growth, he's not so afraid of change (as many of us are groomed to be) but now he looks forward to it. While he'll miss all the people he's met and all the memories he has created, he's ready for what the future holds. He wants to move on.
Not to say he's hunky dory about it all. There's still a lot to be worried about. Will anyone miss him when he's gone? Did anyone even notice he was there? Will he be remembered? Is Dr. Cox finally going to express his feelings (assuming you're still huddled under that rock, not enjoying 25 minute example of excellence in sitcoms; he does and it's amazing)? I think that's the really hard part about leaving, actually. Is anyone going to care? More specifically, are the people who you want to care going to give a rat's ass?
"Endings are never easy. I always build them up so much in my head they can't possibly live up to my expectations and I just end up disappointed. I'm not even sure why it matters to me so much how things end here. I guess it's because we all wanna believe that what we do is very important, that people hang onto our every word, that they care what we think. The truth is: you should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone--anyone--feel a little better. After that it's all about the people that you let into your life." - John Dorian.
