Time Off in Retrospect

>> Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Winter Break. Typically a time for relaxation, sleeping in, movies, and… catching up. Most folks engage in the activity because it’s what they know, it’s what they’re used to. It’s probably the only time of the year someone is guaranteed to meet up with old buddies. Thanksgiving is a matter of days, right next to a short week of spring break. The summer only brings more classes, internships, vacations, you do the math.These once a year ritual meetings should not be taken for granted or on a light note. It’s through these gatherings that the value of a friendship really. Its evidence that although the world has separated two parties, each still cares about the other. More importantly, we discover how the world has been affecting our friends.

Sometimes people change for the better. They decide to become independent and find a means of spirituality while at school. They have grown, developed, and thrived in the situation fate has dealt. On the contrary some friends decide to pick up interesting habits. They engage in such actions that seem so distant in comparison with their name. Never the less, it is who they have decided to grow into.

Half the time we sit across from each other at a local Starbucks or Jamba Juice to reminisce old times. It’s in this moment that life hits rewind and the scene selection resets. Things are exactly how they were one, four, or eight years ago. We laugh, we eat, we walk, we talk, and soon enough we say our goodbyes. Our paths part once again, say take care, and the best of luck. Strangers once again. Winter Break.
