For a variety of reasons, I was recently inspired to look up a number of high school friends and teachers. So this post is my way of saying “Hi, long time no… read about!” to anyone who’s coming to look at my blog.
I don’t know about everyone else – especially those in Europe or outside of the US, who seem to have a very different rythm to their school systems – but high school was really a defining moment for me. The experiences, environment, teachers, and friends I made from sophomore through senior year in high school are still important to me today. I hope I can get back in touch with some of those old friends now. We’ll see. You can’t go back again, or rather, everything is different if you go back. And it really helps to have some better writing in your blog postings too, something I hope to do once I’ve had more coffee today – or less pollen, in any case.
P.S. to some retiring teachers – and those who are still there! – especially S.E.T. and G.H., many thanks for your teaching, humor, and experiences. They did make a difference.
