So, I was going through my “flagged” emails in Outlook today, and found one sent sometime in June from a college friend of mine who is working in LA now. I emailed him back, lamented my self-given title of Queen of Irregular Correspondence, told him what’s up, et cetera.
He wrote back, begging me to go to Homecoming this year. In the past two years I haven’t been able to go because work obligations have kept me too busy, or so I tell myself, and besides, I can never afford it and really have been thinking lately that it’s too soon for me to go back for Homecoming; after all, I just graduated two years ago.
But then I checked my calendar. That weekend’s free. And then I checked hotwire, and can get a flight for under $200. Which I can’t afford at the moment, but will be able to swing once my raise kicks in at the end of this month. And I’m certain that I could find a place to crash for two nights. Because that’s all I could manage, sort of a fly-by-night Friday/Saturday trip, jetting back on Sunday for work on Monday morning.
So now: should I do it? Aren’t I too young to be wondering whether I actually want to see some of those people again?
Some of you have much more life experience than I do. What do you guys think?
Also, see here for today’s “real” entry, where I lament the loss of cool playground equipment.
