Reaching out anyway – part 3

As some of you know, I went to school with a boy who became a famous, and internationally known musician, singer, guitar player.

Recap:

Since discovering him on social media and following him along, I have reminisced about an art class we both took in grade 11. I wanted to know if he, too, remembers that particular class. In part 1 of this story I wrote about how we met.

Later, I decided to reach out to him to ask him about that class. I wasn’t really expecting a response. I figured he was busy and famous and that he probably employs PR people to run his social media account. But I sent him a DM in Instagram anyway. Part 2 of this story tells you what happened next.

After I sent that DM in Instagram to a former classmate, I walked away from my phone.

The memory I had of an event in grade 11 art class had triggered something in me to want to reach out to this man, a boy I once knew for many years in school and who is now a famous musician, singer and guitarist.

I was really curious: did he remember that class as vividly as I did?

I hurt my back last week somehow and have been unable to run. I’m grumpy about that because it was sorta kinda finally coming together…but it can’t be helped. I’m hoping by next week all is back to normal. 😐

Sometimes you just gotta type out your frustrations…am I right?

In my defense, the PMS gods are striking so that’s my excuse. 😇

Anyway, this is what has got my panties in a knot last few days:
