A few days ago, I had the chance to get in touch with old friends. It's been two years since the last time we got together and since they're in town for a quick visit I took this opportunity to catch up with them. These friends I'm referring are a lovely couple, I had the honor to attend their wedding in 2013. I am happy seeing them together after 2 years, and the best part is, more old friends joined us later that day. From 3 folks to 8! One of them, my ex-girlfriend (now married), the other one my highschool classmate, the other one a friend and editor from our college paper (and is dating my highschool classmate), and the other two, a lovely couple as well.
I won't give details on how we met, because it's sort of crazy but these people I haven't seen in the past couple of years, are very dear to me even though we are now busy with life.
As they tirelessly tell stories and catch up with events, I cannot help but think how time went by so fast. From young, skinny and progressive in 2002, to becoming old, chubby and matured. Well, most of these friends of mine are still progressive and in a way I believe that we've become matured in the way we look at things and having solid perspectives in life. It's always nice when you meet up with old friends and see how much you've both grown. I took a different path but the moments I had experienced with these friends are forever in my boat and will never throw them away.
I hope to see them again soon and spend another afternoon laughing together.
