It’s weird how dates can stay with you.
Today is an old friend’s birthday. We were best friends growing up, but once we went to high school we oddly stopped talking. He moved to the Bronx right after freshman year, and I rarely saw him ever since. Through the seldom contact on Facebook, we both went towards different interests. Him with dj’ing and cars, and me with…well I don’t know still, but not that hahaa.
When I realized it was March 5th, I instantly clicked in my mind it was his birthday. We both still have the same numbers since we were friends so I decided to text him a happy birthday and hoping he was doing good. He replied back thanking me, and telling me what’s he’s up to. Since I’m back in New York he actually wants to meet up and see how I’m doing.
Our friendship didn’t really have a falling out, so it’s not like there’s any animosity between us. Even though we haven’t seen each other in forever and we seem like we don’t have much in common, I can’t wait to see how he’s doing.
I’m glad I remembered his birthday. Even though I’m not completely sure how he is now, I’m looking forward to reconnect again. It definitely should be nice catching up.
