So I left off last week with Miguel and I going off to different colleges. I thought I'd never see him again. Life has a funny way of proving us wrong sometimes.
Fun Fact: Facebook used to be a lot creepier than it is now.
One day in January, at the beginning of my second semester at New York University, I got a text from Alpa, my best friend, that said something along the lines of, "OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! Have you checked Facebook today!?" I hadn't, so the first thing I did was log on. Right there, at the very top of my newsfeed, were the words "Miguel Mejias and K (Name Redacted) have ended their relationship. As if Facebook needs to broadcast everyone's personal life to the whole world. But hey, it is what it is.
Alpa pushed me to find out what had happened because she was curious (read: nosey) and figured I knew him a little better than she did. To be fair, Miguel and I had spoken a handful of times since high school. One time sticks out so clearly in my mind.
My college roommate at NYU, Laura, had also gone to high school with Miguel and I. One day, as I was on a Skype call with Miguel, Laura said, "If he and K ever break up, you give him my number." I laughed and said "ok," but inside I was thinking, "If he and K ever break up, he's mine." So, I did what any nosey 18 year old would do. I messaged him on Facebook.
A day has not passed since where we have not spoken to each other.
