the spinning stopped.

May 17, 2009

Last night I had the amazing opportunity to sit down and enjoy the company of 3 of my best friends from high school, and I say opportunity because the chances of the 4 of us being together.... well let's just say it doesn't happen often. It was almost as if the world kind of stopped spinning around us. We sat around as we drank, laughed, chatted and caught up with each others lives. It's hard to believe that just four years ago, we all said goodbye as we ventured off into the 'real' world of college only to wander back four years later. Does anyone see a One Tree Hill resemblance here?

When I first came back to Scottsdale, I told myself I would not throw myself back in to the high school routines. No house parties, no 'high school' activities - my mind was set. I am a college grad and I was determined to act like one. This of course excludes my core (CWLA), but you get the picture. But then I realized that sometimes its important to take a walk down memory lane. It reminds us of those amazing, sweet and pure moments that define us. It reminds us of where we came from -and it allows us to see how far we've really grown. Because if we ever think we're too good to come back to where we started then that just means we really didn't learn anything. Back to where I started, It's good. It means we are growing and we are still learning because one we stop - once the spinning stops, we lose.

  1. Hey. Just stumbled across your blog, not sure how, or why, but I've just got to say that it's amazing how things translate across the world. I'm in my second year at University in England, and when I return home I feel exactly the same as you put here, I try not to go back to my old ways, but every so often I do. And as you say, perhaps that isn't always as bad as we may feel. Have a good day.


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
