Tear, tear – senior year is coming to an end and so are your lifelong friendships with your high school friends.
Thinking back to the ‘goodbye’s’ I had with my friends from home makes me giggle. I remember thinking it was the end of the world. My high school life was officially over. I would never see my friends again. I would never have friends like the one’s I had. Wow, I was so wrong! The friendships that you have in high school are genuine. You have history with all of them and that never goes away. When I was in college I could go months without talking to certain friends, I obviously kept in touch with my closest girlfriends. I remember going home on long weekends or for holidays and feeling a little nervous to see my old friends. I didn’t know what it would be like. Sure enough, we picked up exactly from where we left off. We had exciting stories to share about college and reminicing about high school always made for a great night. Your friends from home are like family. You never really lose that bond. Even now, I have friends from high school that I haven’t talked to in years yet I know that if I went back home and met up with them we would pick up from exactly where we left off.
An even crazier thought…. some of the best friends I have (couldn’t imagine living without them) I made while I was in college.
