Today I went to a bbq to catch up with my gal friends at my friend's house. We went to high school and some of us went to college together. I haven't seen them for a while, especially since I was away for a year.
The weather was baking outside and I got a lot of sun. In fact, it was so hot that I burned the soles of my feet by daring to walk on the hot cement. Luckily my friend has a pool so I spent a lot of time in there.
Anyways, we all talked about the good ole' high school days, our college days and life after. Time sure can fly.
We are all college grads now. One just graduated a couple of months ago. Some of us have jobs, and some are looking for work and living at home. One of us is married. None of us have children yet. I feel that we are in the beginning stages of our lives. Things are starting to happen for us. My married friend just got a new job, is building a house and planning on having children soon.
As for me, I just came back from Europe, I just got a new job and a new car. I feel like I am starting my life. Those days of laying the foundation are over. Now I am starting to build over that foundation.
Just 6 years ago we were all single high school girls talking about our futures with nothing to show for it. I can't imagine any of us having children. In my mind we will always be young, single girls.
It was a nice day. But part of me felt a little nostalgic and sad. Sometimes I wish for those days where I could have a clean slate like I did 6 years ago. I am sure we all think about that from time to time.
Anyways, that's enough deep talk for now.
