Friends

9:23 AM |

having a rare sappy moment...


The thing I like most about the holidays is getting a chance to catch up with people I haven't seen in a while. My friends that live in the city with me are all caught up in doing their own thing. So it's good for me to catch up with people because often I start feeling lonely. Last night I hung out with some gentlemen I haven't seen in 20 years. Not since I left the city in 5th grade.

It was good to catch up and see how they've been doing all these years. Each turned out how I expected. One went to school, has his own house, supporting the family, good job and all of that. Crazy what that kid remembers. The other kind of got caught up a bit. Has a 7 year old, tatted up like crazy, made it out of high school but didn't go too much further, apparently had a few issues growing up but overall made it OK and is doing well. But both are making it and doing their thing. We hung out for like 6 hours just catching up. Mostly it was them seeing what happened to me and seeing how I turned out because they still talk to each other a lot. But we had a lot of fun and really talked like no time had passed at all.

I remember growing up I was always told that the friends I made in elementary school, middle school, and high school would all but disappear from my life completely. That the real friends I'd have I'd make in college. But it really hasn't happened for me that way. The people I consider the closest to me are the ones I've known the longest. The one's I can call up at any moment and have a conversation with like we saw each other yesterday. Even though I don't see them or talk to them nearly as much as I should, they still are my peoples. Don't get me wrong I love my girls from school, but there's nothing like my old friends.

So cheers good people...
