December 14, 2004
I have been back from uni just over a week now and only just got round to going out for a catch up drink with my friends, it was only actually 3 of us though as most still aren't back from uni, so it was Mike (who is actually at Warwick anyway so I see him everynow and again), Matt and myself. The night has lead me to one conclusion, catch-up drinks are never really what they claim to be.
Yeah sure you spend about 2 minutes filling each other in on each others lives over the past couple of months but most of it no-one really cares about, its the kinda stuff you had to be there for to really appreciate, now what does seem to make the best conversation is reliving shared memories and experiences. It's far more enjoyable to have a good laugh over past events which were experienced by all then to just listen to someone talk about something that happened with their uni friends.
We had a very good laugh discussing people from our old school (teachers included), how many of them we could remember and what they were / are like. It was really nice to be reminded of certain people and things that had happened, it would be really nice to organise a reunion, not so that we can all catch up to say "Yeah uni is going fine, how about you?" but so we can look back on our schooldays and celebrate the good times and laugh at the less fortunate events.
