I recently joined my former school's Acquaintance Party. I planned to just miss it since I was all drained from office work but I decided to attend for my boss-friend. I simply owed something to her.
I kinda missed my students, I was all touched when some of them came to me and said their hello's and got some photo shoots.
There were new faces, who I believed are freshmen and transferees. I shall miss school functions but I have to give this new job a try.
Social events in school or somewhere are always avenues for meeting old and new friends, learn new insights and sharpen one's personal relation skills.
