I feel again, like I'm standing at some strange crossroads of life. Found another old classmate on Facebook. While this 'find' doesn't throw me into the chaos the previous one did, it does give me pause. We're not kids anymore.
I keep meeting new people as leave behind one place and go to another. It's amazing how I've never left the state yet I rarely run into people I once knew after I've left that 'circle'.
But I can't help but wonder what happened to the people I've known, the kids I went to school with, back when I went to school. (was homeschooled from 5th grade on) In that time, with the advent of Facebook and email and other social media sites it's easier to stay in touch. But about 4/5 crucial years were missed with me and them. When email was too new and Facebook didn't exist. So what do I do?
I'm more curious than anything. What have they been up to? More than me no doubt. How they've grown up without me just like I've grown up without them. Something particularly entrancing about childhood friends. I seem to have lost all of mine. It makes me sad.
