As my life has become consumed by my overly demanding classes recently, I’m trying to maintain my sanity by returning emails quickly and catching up with (i.e., facestalking) friends on Facebook. I also had a chance to hang out with my best friend from high school and his fiancée for a couple hours on Sunday, which was far more refreshing than I thought it would be. I really don’t see my friends enough.
Speaking of facestalking, I recently found a few old friends on Facebook. It’s a little depressing to think about all the people I’ve lost touch with over the years. I think about how difficult it would be to reconnect with these people (especially, for example, my old church friends from high school). I think about how life and time have changed us. If we were to sit down and chat, would we become friends again? Would we have anything in common anymore? Does it even matter?
C’est la vie, I suppose.
