Do you ever see your school friends? Social media makes it easy to keep in contact with everyone. It’s been at least a couple of decades since I’ve been at school and most of my school friends are on Facebook, which makes it very easy to keep up to date. We did have a large reunion about five years ago.
Seeing pictures of friends children, holiday snaps from all around the globe and day to day activities makes for an interesting news feed. With all the convenience of social media though, I don’t actually ‘see’ my friends in person.
So when it happens, it really is great! Today I had the pleasure of catching up with a friend. She sent me a text message a couple of days ago saying she was in town and we arranged a catch-up today.
It’s funny how your school friends never change, at least not much anyway. Things that you remember about their personality and character are still there. They might be a little older (and a lot wiser for the life experiences), but when you get down to the nitty gritty, they still are the wonderful friends of your past.
I discovered that my friend is very much interested in many of my current interests. That was quite exciting to learn, so now we can keep in contact not only on a ‘Hi, how are you going, haven’t seen you in ages’ basis, but now we can actually connect on common interests as well.
I am so happy we connected again.
I put this out to the blogosphere today, why don’t you organise a reunion with some of those friends you see on social media all the time, but you don’t actually ‘see’ in person? I am confident you will really enjoy the experience.
