Being in a new year reminds me of how quickly time flies. One moment I was a fresh face in a stinky dormitory... and the next thing you know, I'm in my mid-thirties not able to remember where I left something I had in my hands just minutes before.
I recently went "home" to see some very good friends--some I actually hadn't seen for more than a decade! But time is so interesting in that way. As my friend Lucy pointed out... it's so weird that you can make lifelong friendships from such a short period of time.
My college friends are so special to me. I don't have to see them or talk to them, but I always feel connected to them.
As I get older and wiser, I realize more everyday that true friendships are really hard to come by.
So here's to a new year, old friends and bright beginnings!
