Educators all

It was a bit strange seeing so many of the MOE people in the same place again, for the first time in so very long.

Was it already a year ago that we'd gone for OBS together, that we'd collectively yawned our way through the pre-departure courses, that we'd worked together to produce that embarrassing excuse of an item for the pre-departure ceremony?

I suppose that yes, yes it has been that long already, and truth be told, I haven't really bothered keeping in touch with most of them, not even the ones I thought I'd got along with pretty well. Which is sad, really, but I suppose that's the way it works.

It was heartening, however, that we still do have things to talk about, and that it wasn't really all that awkward amongst the lot of us. I suppose that even though we might not really know a lot about each others' personal lives, at the end of the day, we are all (well, mostly anyway) similar in one way at least, and that there is something unifying in that one common aspect, somehow.
