How are you guys? Even though it has technically been, “long time, no see!”, it never really feels that way.
Though it has been a while since we were able to meet up in person, having a conversation never really feels too far away.
A few weeks after leaving for college, one of my friends from high school added everyone who we were friends with to a single Facebook Messenger group chat. I am glad to say that three years later, the group chat is still going strong.
It is really comforting to know that even though after high school and all of us went to different colleges, I still consider them to be some of my closest friends. I feel that I am really easy to take for granted, that I am still able to talk to my friends from high school. For many, that is not the case.
We can all admit it can be really easy to lose contact with people over time, even if at one time you have considered them to be really close friends. I do believe that having this group chat might be one of the main reasons we all remained so close to each other, even though we all graduated high school so long ago.
I owe a lot to the Facebook Messenger App. I really like the idea how it saves all of the old conversations that we had in the chat. It serves as a really cool time capsule to our past.
Every so often I like to scroll through our past conversations and relive the past. It's pretty cool.
That very first semester away from home, I found a lot of comfort in the group chat. It was really nice to know that even though I was far away from home, I still had someone on my side.
