I was very excited for reunion - but also a little nervous. Not because I was worried about where I am in life compared to others, not at all. It had to do with FB. Yes, Facebook. Like most people, I am friends with a lot of people that I am not really friends with. What I mean is, we were friends in college, but in the last 10 years I've seen them once - at our 5 year reunion. Yet, I know a lot about them. Who they're dating, where they're working, when they got married, and where they took their last vacation. I found the thought of having a conversation with someone who I haven't seen in years, but already knowing everything what's going on.

But, at least for me, this did lead to more awkwardness. For example, as those college years become distant memories, I start to forget how I knew people. Did I have a class with him? Did we live on the same floor? Same major? For example, I would be talking with someone and it was clear that we knew each other. But I couldn't for the life of me conjure up an actual memory from school. Admittedly, I don't have a great memory. But it felt so strange to be talking so familiarly with someone so...unfamiliar.
