Every once in awhile I get a little nostalgic. It happens mostly when I’m bored and online. I’ve exhausted my blogroll, done all that I can with my facebook and myspace pages. So, what else is there to do? I tend to try some googling of former residences and schools. For me that’s West Allis, Wisconsin and Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. I attempt to figure out where former classmates went to high school and search. But no luck.
How does one look for peeps far removed? My family moved to Melbourne, Florida when I was eight. That’s a big stretch of time with no contact to be looking for folks on the intertubes. Heck, I don’t even remember the names of those I went to school with so how can I expect to try to find alumni and actually recognize names? I have already made connections with former schoolmates from my childhood in Melbourne through myspace. It’s just every now and then I like to look a little farther back. I’m currently at work so I’m not doing any drunk googling. That might get a little dangerous.
At least I found the house that I grew up (until eight) in. 1040 South 88th Street. That’s one thing I can remember!
