I am full of nostalgia these days thanks to a lonely little facebook group that is totally secret comprised of my college friends.
Just when I was about to graduate early and move back to Arizona, I randomly moved into an apartment complex that changed my life. I stayed for two years because of the people I met there. They were my density. I even remember saying after the first week, "There is no way I am leaving these people." Anyway, here we are 16 years later and thanks to Facebook we have the ability to discuss funny things at a moments' notice. For that, I am grateful.
I have to say that I have always been very lucky when it comes to fun groups of friends. Well, except for Junior High, but we won't go there. In High School I hung out with a lot of fun people who bonded together through adversity. At BYU I hung out with a lot of fun people who bonded together because we all lived in an apartment complex where you couldn't possibly even try to have any secrets or privacy, and could get hit by paintballs just walking out your front door. That is, if your front door wasn't tied shut to a pole. Anyway.
Then when I moved to Virginia I hung out with a lot of fun people brought together from all over because they were single and wanted a life. Now I hang out with a lot of fun people who I know because of my neighborhood, kids' school, etc. etc.
In short - I really love my friends. I miss the old ones, love the new ones. And that is what life is all about - the people you love. I am grateful to have a lot of people to love. The end.
