Goodbyes are always difficult. I recently had a college friend who passed away. This was a very young man who had only graduated a few years ago and went on to recently earn his Masters. And while we weren’t the closest of friends, the moments, times, and projects we collaborated in and shared were all awesome. This gentleman exuberated happiness, love and care everywhere he went and regardless of if you were a girl or a guy, you’d pretty much get the biggest bear hug in your life everytime you see him.
My tip to the Class of 2011: Stay close to your friends, make that effort to keep in touch and do schedule those annual reunions.
