I finished high school in 2004. I still feel young, but when you bump into new people and find out they are 5 years your junior, it plays with your mind. I feel that high school went too quickly for me. I didn’t talk to enough folks from class, that I wish I did. I didn’t get to learn about so many people, because I didn’t make the effort to.
It’s something, that I wish I was wiser towards.
After 15 years, exactly, I can say that I’ve finally met Alexandra. I met Alex and James, the day before their wedding in Newcastle. But it makes me a little sad, because we went to high school together.
I wish I could tap my high school self on the shoulder.
I’d tell myself, “Rich, talk to people. Welcome them. They all have so much to share.”.
