Set Adrift On Memory Bliss
I was at my parents house last night and was going through a few boxes that I hadn’t brought with me when I moved out. It was sure something else taking that walk down memory lane. A place I haven’t been to in over 15 years.
During my ‘walk’, I came across a box FILLED with notes and letters my friends had written to me. We used to write back and forth to each other in class and slip them into each other’s lockers, bags, etc. We wrote about many topics, including the boys we liked, the stuff we did when we weren’t together, our broken hearts, our happy moments and the troubles in our day to day lives.
I haven’t had the chance to go through all of them yet, as it will literally take me weeks, if not months to dent the hundreds of pieces of paper, some in a 3″ binder and the others folded into tiny squares (you remember those fun forms of origami we all used to compact the notes?). However, I did skim through a few and let me tell you, it’s going to be interesting! It’s too bad I don’t have the letters I wrote to them. I wonder if they still have those letters?
This trip back to junior high and high school should be something. Hopefully I can find some juicy, 15+ year old gossip to share!
