I’ve been home this summer for the first time in a little bit. It’s the summer after you graduate college that you come to the realization that those friends you’ve had since high school or grade school or going to be the best friends you’ll have. You might make some incredible friends in college or the real world. But at the end of the day, you’ll laugh the hardest when you’re reminiscing on stories from your Freshman year of high school. There’s something about growing up alongside other people that builds the strongest connection.
Sorry to get sentimental with you on a Thursday morning, but I came across this music video (where Ben Rector reunites with his high school band in their parents’ basement) and it just hit all the strings.
