Voice From the Past

Early this week, via the Internet, contact was made. I was shocked, surprised, and stunned. If there was one person I thought I would never hear from again. It has been a long time since I heard from him and the sight of the message made my stomach drop.

My first thought was happiness at seeing the message. I figured the message would be filled with reasons and an explanation. In fact, it was simple.

Although I feel a bit of sadness about the history between us, I can still hold onto the happy times and wish him every bit of happiness. He's happily married, working hard, and making a life for himself. I'm not part of that life and that is sad, but I also accept what life threw at me. I'll remember the wonderful times. I'll remember the nights of laughter and smiles.

He wrote, "If you remember me," and all I want to reply is, "How could I forget?"

I do still care. He still touches my heart.

Vacation So Far

The past few days off have been nice and relaxing. I have done a whole lot of nothing. Sunday was spent at my dad's and then at the Chalet. After the bar closed, I was invited over to Bryan and Liz's place. On Monday, I did a ton of homework and met Sarah at Perkins. Tuesday was dinner with my dad at Jake's - a great restaurant nearby that serves a delicious blackened cajun pork chop. Then it was Perkins again. Tonight, I went to karaoke to visit Angie-Ang and Sara.

Thursday's plans include:
Dinner with Mom and Scott
Karaoke with the whole gang

I was thinking about an old friend today. When I was little, my friend, Jason, and I were inseperable. It was his birthday on Wednesday. I wonder how he is doing. I hope he's well. College hit both of us and we drifted, but we're also still friendly when we run into each other. I heard he got married a few years back.

Thursday is going to be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends at the bar. Even a few friends from work are coming up to the bar.

This was meant as just a short post to show I'm still around. I'll be visiting blogs over the next few days.
