Believe it or not but as of this past June, I have been out of high school for ten years! What does this mean? Time for the ten-year high school reunion! I’m extremely ambivalent about my attendance. On one hand, I have maintained a relatively large amount of my close friends from my high school (or elementary) years. I am in communication with a fair amount of people and don’t need an expensive social event to touch base with them. On the other hand, what ever happened to all those people of my youth that I have lost contact with? What really happened to my friends from 1st grade? If I really cared all these years, wouldn’t I have reconnected with them in some fashion? With the invention of social networking like Facebook, myspace and all the others, I have been pretty versed on who’s married, who does what and where they live. Has Facebook ruined high school reunions? What would we talk about if the basics have already been established from the comfort of our own homes? Then there are those people that I do not want to see. If I were to attend, would I just be subjecting myself to the insecurities and discomforts of high school that I thought I had overcome years ago? Or would I just be going to say “haha, I’m married and made something of my life…so there!” If that’s the case, than maybe I’m better off just scheduling an appointment with my nearby psychiatrist. I am looking to you; my friends, family and associates…did you go to your reunion and/or do you recommend I go to mine?
I so enjoy your blogs. I say go to your reunion. It will be a lot of fun.
I'll go if you go…hehehe! It's so expensive though!
