20 yrs- Really??

A few weeks ago, I found myself heading to my 20 yr high school reunion with a big sense of trepidation brewing in my belly.  To say high school wasn't exactly my time might be an understatement, but when I'd looked through my photo albums and yearbooks with my BFF on the phone prior to the reunion I remembered that there were some really good times.  Some good friends, many memories and although I have only really kept in touch with only said BFF since high school.  I was curious.  Yet, still when I didn't feel so good that day, I almost gave in figuring I had an excuse. Somehow or another I convinced myself to go.

I arrived at the San Gabriel Country Club and was greated by many familiar faces and many not so familiar. I found some old friends and found easy conversation, interesting people.  Yes, we have all grown up in the last 20 years.  The people who were friendly and interesting, still are!  For the most part, the people who were tools, still are!  Even with that said.  I had a really nice time. I am glad that I went. I was really glad to reconnect with many of the people whom I had known since I was 5 years old, when we all started kindergarten.  I have made plans to see some of them since.

Maybe you can't go back. I am sure that I don't want to go back to high school, yet still it was a really fun evening.

Best wishes SMHS class of '89 it was good to see you again.

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.

I would not go to a high school reunion. I just don't want to revisit that time; which is interesting when you consider that almost half of my Facebook friends are old school people. Go figure... It is enough for me that I've caught up with what they are doing now thru FB. And since we caught up, we've not been in touch again. Besides, most of us are now dispersed across several continents of the globe, so getting back together wouldn't be so easy!

I skipped my 20 year. I was told by one of the boys that it was fun. I am vaguely curious about some of the people, but overall I think I am ok with the mystery of not knowing what they are doing now.
