It’s not very often that it happens, but this year almost all of my closest friends from high school got together to catch up. It made me happy and sad at the same time because it’s so good to see the people that had the greatest influence on my life growing up, yet we hardly talk or see each other anymore. I know that’s just the way it goes in life, but it doesn’t make it any less bittersweet. I’m glad to see that Sara and I have grown up and put our differences behind us, and no longer despise each other to the very core. Other than that change for the better, everyone else seems to be pretty much the same as I remember them. Sure, we all look a little different and discuss more important topics than what’s on MTV or who’s going to ask whom to prom, but I still relate to each person based primarily on my memories and experiences with him/her from back in high school. We were a great bunch of friends back then, and we’re still a great bunch of friends now… even if it’s only once a year.
