Catching Up Is Fun #sol18

Social media has made the world smaller. Because of social media, I am able to keep up with people, no matter where they are. As we scatter around the world, we can continue to make connections with others.

I’m in Singapore for the IB Global Conference this weekend, and because of social media, I was able to connect with a high school friend I haven’t seen in nearly 20 years! She and her family now live in Singapore, so when I knew I was going to be in town, I looked her up and it just so happened that our schedules matched up.

Miranda and her son came down to my hotel, and we had dinner at Din Tai Fung before strolling down by the river to take in the city. It was so great to catch up with her. In high school, we were friends, but didn’t really hang out outside of school. Talking to her, we realized we are much more alike than we even knew. Our experiences in the past few years are very similar, and I found myself nodding along in agreement many times throughout the night. We are now looking forward to continuing our friendship, and hopefully she can come visit me in Jakarta!

    What a fun reunion with an old friend! I think that says so much. “Our experiences in the past few years are very similar, and I found myself nodding along in agreement many times throughout the night.” As I age I am drawn strongly to people with my same morals. It’s no longer about interests or hobbies per say, but rather what lies at the innermost of our souls.

      You are so right…I find that I no longer click with some people, but then you have a hard time letting go, and then there are others you click with right away.

    Social media does make the world smaller. How great to have a friend from high school on the other side of the world be able to meet up with you.

    Wow you have the best traveling experiences! This is definitely one of the positives to social media. Being able to stay in touch with people who you will rarely see face to face.
