I never knew I could get that loud. I didn’t know I could still laugh like THAT. After growing up with them for the 8 years of my life and leaving them for 4 years, they still know how my buttons work. I can’t get over the fact that I lost my appetite because I was way too happy.
I’m genuinely happy. They completed what was missing on this trip. We reminisced on the good times we had when I was still at the school and they told me what happened after I left. They told me that they didn’t expect me to go from the fat kid to this. They told me my laugh was still the same. They told me my sense of humor was still the same. They told me my attitude was still the same and they told me they were happy that I didn’t change too much. It’s so nice to be myself a 100% again. I didn’t need to fake the smile, fake the laugh, fake the faces and fake the enjoyment. It was all real for once. I forgot what it was like to be with them and they made me re-experience happiness even though it was just a day.
They’re people I wouldn’t call my best friends but they’re people I will forever call my family. Congratulation on graduating from our alma mater and getting in top colleges.
I can’t wait till two years from now when I’m back here again. This time I’ll be staying here for a while.
