“What’s been going on since I saw you last?” April 30, 2008

How do you answer “what’s new?” or “what’s been going on?” when you haven’t seen someone in ten years?

It is a strange thing seeing people from your past. This weekend I have seen more people from the past twenty-five years of my life than ever in one location and oddly enough it is in a city that happens to be the current common bond but not where any of us met or are originally from.

So what is new? The summary is basically this:

High school graduation – Move to Utah – Move to Milwaukee for school at Marquette – Marquette graduation – Back to Utah – Travel a little, work randomly, putz around trying to figure out ‘what next?’ – And now I work at a small marketing consulting company and I want to go back to school and get my Masters.

For those I was closer to, There are a few more personal details involved. But nothing too shocking and I don’t feel like I’ve heard anything from anyone else that surpasses my own slightly trivial happenings. A couple people got married and/or had kids. But otherwise it is more or less the same story.

I don’t really miss Warsaw yet, there are still things I miss about it. I do miss Milwaukee and Marquette – not the way it is now but the way it was when I was there. Ultimately, I miss the people that made these places what they were. There are a handful of people. They know who they are. They were the people closest to me. The ones that we hardly had to have conversations because we knew what the other was thinking. These are the people I remember things about that they don’t and sometimes they bring up things that I forgot – or am still trying to forget. The ones that still call me Missy much to my dismay.

Even though when we sum up our lives when so much time has unbelievably passed it doesn’t sound like much, it is. We have all changed. We have grown. Life has treated us well. And now, despite the occasional nostalgic desire to go back in time and relive the simpler times, we are in a good place.
