Did You Find Me?

I can't believe this but my friends from grade school found me on Facebook!

Oh my....I know... I'm so busted!

I still keep in touch with a few of my childhood friends but I haven't seen them in a long time. So, they planned a get-together; a reunion brunch last week. I wasn't able to attend but I said I'd go to the next one. Apparently at this brunch they discussed having a class reunion! A couple of days later, I started receiving friend requests from my old classmates - people I haven't seen, or heard from in twenty five years! With all the new changes on Facebook, and all my privacy settings - I'm amazed how many people can still find me! Oh, why did I use my maiden name?!

I like my privacy. I love my obscurity. I tell hubby about the growing list of classmates that have added me, and he just laughs and scoffs, "You're practically on every social media site that's out there! You even have a blog!"
  
Oh, shoot...I'm so screwed.

Honestly, it's great to hear from them but it's a little awkward. Weird.

But I have to confess my childhood was a happy one. I had a beautiful circle of friends; our friendship was so special. I don't think I'll ever meet a group of people like that again. Even my grade school, and the teachers were incredible; they were our mentors and inspired us all to be the best that we can be. Wow, did I just say that?

So, I guess I'm off to add them, and to rekindle the magic of my youth.

And by the way, if you should ever find me, anywhere, just go ahead and add me.

  2. How exciting! I recently reconnected with a favorite friend from high school through Facebook. When some people find you though, it IS a little weird and awkward. Have fun at the reunion!

  4. I so understand your heart. My schoolmates from, uh..years ago, are finding me. And they look better than I do. I think it's a plot by facebook so they can start charging us. LOL

  10. Lol. I can totally relate. That's why I don't use my maiden name on facebook, have a separate facebook for my blog b/c I blog undercover. Why, I don't know... I'll probably change that sometime and maybe even put my maiden name on facebook- who knows.
