My high school 10 year reunion is coming up. My best friend, and our Senior Class President, has been totally busting her butt to pull together a weekend of fun stuff to do...almost single handedly...and she doesn't even live in the city where we graduated! Talk about a trooper.
I consider myself to be one of those lil miss high school types. No, I don't mean that I was a popular girl...not by a long shot...but I LOVED high school. When I think about my time there I think about everything all at once - our varsity soccer games, running cross country, our crazy demanding AP English teacher (but he was wonderful), choir (no surprise I love Glee!), my chums, my teachers, my class projects (is that goofy? I remember so many of the projects I worked on for school! ha!), student council, homecoming parade floats, playing powderpuff, my first love, traveling around Europe, planning prom, singing at Carnegie Hall, all those car wash fundraisers, learning to drive, Friday nigh football games, oh my list could just go on and on!! I rarely think of the drama...or the mean girls...or the a-holes...or the bullies that were obviously intertwined in my experience. (Funny...Facebook actually puts the mean girls and the a-holes back into my life...why is that?!)
I was uber involved in high school, over involved to be honest, I didn't want to miss out on anything. It kindof ruined me a little bit - now I rarely sign up to do "extra" stuff because in high school I signed up to do allllll the extra stuff!! It's possible I'm still recovering.
So...all that being said, I can't attend the reunion. AND I'M SO BUMMED! I don't have any vacation days to do it. NOTHING will keep me away from my 20 year reunion!
Did you go to your reunion? Or are you planning on going?
