It’s interesting seeing on social media how people you knew a lifetime ago have turned out. There are people that I knew back in the day who have grown up to do really cool stuff, and others who haven’t. Then there are those people who have ended up exactly how you thought they would based on what you knew about them.
Then again, it’s hard to predict who a person will become based on a snapshot of their life. There are so many things that can occur that can change a person for the better, or the worse.
Still, if you were only a part of a person’s life during a fragment of time, sometimes when reconnecting with that person on social media, your mind immediately pulls memories of them: those barcardi shots you took with them at the club, or that one time they were slutty nurses for Halloween. Or maybe you remember that time in 3rd grade when they sat next to you and would put glue on the palm of their hand, let it dry, and then peel it off like it was lizard skin.
(Confession, the kid who did the glue thing? That was me.)
… That person become a scientist? Might be your next thought. Or …that guy is a dad
Sometimes these are thought in wonderment of how things can change. Other times they are thought in judgement, which can be unfair to do as life can be a constant evolution of the self driven experiences and life lessons learned ; who we are today is not the same as who we were yesterday, nor will it be the same as who we will become tomorrow.
And I…. I am not the same person I was when I was peeling dried glue off the palm of my hand….
.. Wait… I kind of did once… with this DIY charcoal mask I saw on youtube (Go to the 2 minute mark for ingredients and you will find the ingredients are Elmer’s glue and charcoal .) Okay… so maybe some things don’t change.
Things I like This Week:
Back To School Supplies:
It’s that time of year where stores are starting to line their shelves with back to school supplies. I’ve been a school/office supply junkie ever since I was a kid. I could probably spend all day looking at pens, notebooks, and highlighters. No lie.
There’s this new highlighter I saw that is erase-able. I was like …say What?!?
I almost bought it, but made myself resist.
A Quiet Place: saw this movie this weekend and it is good. It’s not scary, it’s more like a movie where you’re like…how are these people going to survive? I would say that I haven’t seen a movie like it since Signs. Definitely recommend.
Anyways, that’s it for now. Hope everyone’s week is awesome 🙂
