WPC: Seems So Long Ago

classof2010

The year 2010, when I graduated from high school, seems so long ago now. So much has changed in the world since then: technology, music, fashion, cultural references. This picture, originally taken with a slider phone I had in 2010, takes me back to my senior year when my whole future was still in front of me, the book was still being written. I thought about putting up a picture of my yearbook from senior year but couldn’t get a suitable picture of it with my camera. The year that was all about “The End, But the Start of Something New” is gone, but not forgotten in my mind. The many students I got to know for four years have scattered, but I can still remember and keep in touch with them on Facebook.
