|Do you remember back in grade school and high school? You'll sign your classmates' yearbook or slumbook and you'd always end with a dedication like, "Hope you stay the same, don't ever change, keep in touch"?
I wrote stuff like that endless times to dozens and dozens of people. It seemed so easy to say it that time. Because, at that time, you think, it's easy to keep in touch, especially if you're going to the same school the year after.
But one thing I've learned after graduating from college, it's easy to say something but it's not always easy to do it.
I was talking to a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago. We hadn't seen each other in two years. We've kept in touch once in a while with the ocassional mass email or text message but less of those intimate talks. And we both reached a whole new level of conclusion: that once you've kept in touch, it's so hard to stay in touch.
And that's what I'm really, and I mean really, trying to do now: keeping and staying in touch with my friends. Although it is also hard when they don't keep in touch with you also. But that's a whole different story.
