Today is going to be a busy day. I woke up early to pack things into my car because after working 8:30- 12:30 today, I’m going to be making the 5 hour trek home for Thanksgiving! I’m excited to just relax at home and enjoy the fact that I actually don’t have any huge papers or assignments looming over my head. Since I finished packing my car with an extra half hour to spare, I thought I’d write a little post dedicated to my dear old friends.
In high school, you’re lucky if you remain friends with people from week to week. I was lucky enough to somehow fall into this great group of friends. We’ve stayed close throughout four years of high school AND four years of college, despite the fact that we were scattered across the state, and now across the country. Somehow, we find time to see each other whenever we’re home and I’m thankful that I get to see a few of them tonight!
Like I mentioned in my recent post on day dates, my main tip for post grads looking to keep in contact with old friends is to schedule, schedule, schedule. If you don’t make the time to see each other when you’re home on breaks, it’s just not going to happen. Keep each other updated through phone calls, texting, email, facebook, twitter… whatever your favorite social media site/ method of communication may be.
Happy Thanksgiving post grads! I hope you all get a chance to see some old friends, relax with family, and eat some great food this holiday!
