Thursday night I went to meet my ex-colleagues from Journalism. My ex-group has this good habit; they meet every Thursday in a small pub called Red Lion. Quiet, cozy, warm, friendly, everything you need for a meeting with old friends. I had been to one of these gatherings last summer and had no idea they kept going. Yet I am glad they did.
Seems I have been missing out on a lot of things: promotions, new jobs, new hair styles. A baby girl! Exactly, a baby girl I had no idea of! My colleague Vlad and his wife are guilty of it. I knew they got married a long time ago, but I had no idea about their daughter.
Conclusion was, I should try harder to be a part of these meetings. It really helped me relax a bit and forget about all my worries concerning work, school, my paper and everything else that’s on my mind.
