    So, this past Saturday, a friend of mine got married back in the town I went to middle school and high school in, Orangeburg. First off, it's sort of surreal that I already have friends getting married.

    Anyway, it was sort of depressing to see that a lot of the people I went to high school with haven't amounted to crap. Furthermore, it's even more depressing to see that most of them haven't changed a bit since high school. In a sense, though, that sort of makes me feel pretty good because it makes me see how much I've changed since then.

    Anyway, the trip basically confirmed my suspicions that I never really want to hang around most of those people ever again, nor do I ever want to live in Orangeburg ever again.

    Well Dan..
    What you described is normal growth, in maturity and life experience...Congratulations to you!
    Some people never arrive at the point you have..Believe it or not.
    And hey, don't knock small towns too hard...They are special.

    I'm all for small towns, I basically still live in one, but Orangeburg sucks in a major way. You know those movies where the NYC socialite goes to the south and it looks like something from the damn early 1900's? That's Orangeburg. Sort of. It does have a Super Wal-Mart.

    I've been in Orangeburg and hundreds of small towns across the Counrty.
    Orangeburg is a metropolis compared to some...believe me. It ain't all that bad.

    No, you don't get it!!!!

    No, seriously, I was going to mention that O'burg isn't exactly a "small town", but it does have that small town feel to it. I definitely could've grown up in worse places. I think a lot of it was going from NJ to Orangeburg and having to adjust. Either way, I don't like it, so deal! :)

    It just means "deal with it". Sorry, I thought that was a common phrase!

    Maybe I was premature with my compliment on your maturity.

    Um, I'm not sure if you get that I'm joking around, but okay.
