The prospect of reconnecting with a friend is always exciting. There are some challenges with scheduling and location, but I find it more or less works out if both parties are willing. I don’t have any of my old text messages saved on my phone, which surprised me a great deal when I was chatting on Facebook the other day.
The date stamp is 12/21/2013. It was my very first quarter at UCSB. It floored me almost to see what I wrote to her. Marketing, which is what I do now, was always the game plan. Seeing that made me smile a bit. I felt uneasy at the time being away from my friends. Add in the emotions that come with being newly single didn’t help. I had some idea of what I wanted to do for a living and it materialized.
More so, I’m amazed. She called it first. Well, I did develop a bit of a drinking problem. At the very least, I have to tell her that her joke was more of a foreshadowing of things to come for me. Perhaps an apology too while I’m at it. I’m sure we’ll both get a kick out of it.
