…But Old Ones Are Gold. Over my 4 years in college I can say that I have stayed close to 3 of my high school friends. When I look back to senior year of high school I remember having maybe 10 additional close friends who I would feel comfortable hanging out with, and now as a 21-year-old, grab a drink with…but no more.
As I move to Chicago I have carefree access to my 3 roommates and co-workers, but I’m scared my college friends will suffer the same fate as the high school ones. Therefore, I’m making a pledge to try (sorry Yoda). To try to reach out at least once a month, keep the bonds strong, and make sure that my years in Bloomington are not lost to time.
