When I was in the last semester in the college, our class together with a couple of professors decided to tour one the tourist destination in the country to mark our journey since we were almost finishing school. When the day to go, the trip came, we all packed and left the school ready to spend every moment and creates some fond memories to remember.
My classmate carried with them some good cameras ready to take all manner of photos to remind them of this remarkable day. On my side, I didn’t find the need to take some pictures or share some light moments with my classmates. I remember I only appeared in one group photo which the prof requested all of us.
Years later, after graduating my classmates started sharing the photos and also reckoning some moments which they shared while on the trip. In my case, I had no single photo to share, and I could see how my friends were happy with the pictures and the part of the history which they were remembering, and it made me realize how important the trip was. It is good to appreciate what you have at the moment.
