At the risk of sounding like the Antichrist, I have to admit that Facebook isn’t really my thing anymore. Apparently, today’s youth doesn’t use Facebook at all. Can somebody under 20 confirm, please? I have no idea what is and isn’t hip among teens these days.
Anyways, I’m going off topic. There’s one thing left I love about Facebook. It allows us to stay in touch with friends from all over the world. Phone numbers change, but most people I know have kept their Facebook profiles alive over the years.
When Jan-Oliver, an old schoolmate of mine, saw that I had moved back to Germany, he decided to get back in touch on Facebook. After writing back and forth a few times, exchanging numbers and ending up in the same town over the Easter break, we decided to finally meet up again – after 9 years of not seeing each other.
And once you can say that you haven’t seen somebody for 9 years, you sure as hell know you’re getting old 😀 Ahh…time is a funny thing. You’d think that seeing somebody for the first time in 9 years would be awkward, but it really wasn’t. It was so natural, like we never fell out of touch.
Jan-Oliver and I not only used to be schoolmates, but also dancing partners for a year or two before I moved to London. He never minded my abnormally sweaty hands. I think that deserves a big fat chocolate medal.
Anyways, if you’ve been wondering what some of your old schoolmates are up to now, why not drop them a private message on Facebook and meet up for the first time in 10 years? You’re not getting any younger, so what are you waiting for? I, for one, have gained a new old friend in the process, and couldn’t be happier about it 🙂
