My 10 year high school reunion is next weekend.
I cannot believe it's been 10 years since high school. Everyone says this, but I mean it...where did the time go?!
Hard to believe that in the last 10 years...
...I went to and graduated from college;
...I rediscovered and married my first love;
...My friends got engaged and married!
...My friends started having children and buying homes!?
...I started working like a real adult;
...I moved away from my childhood home; and so much more...
So many things have happened even though that list seems pretty small on paper.
I was on the fence about going to the reunion. The ticket price was a little steep in my opinion, it meant driving home for 2-3 hours one way, I don't feel like I have accomplished enough for 10 years out of high school, and I am out of shape. In general, I just wasn't sure if it was worth it.
In high school I was pretty quiet, academically focused, reserved, and absorbed in band (nerd alert). I didn't want to bring too much attention to myself and just wanted to be friendly and get along with everyone. High school was fun, I enjoyed it, I made friends, I think I got a good education, but high school is kind of awkward. I was uncertain if I wanted to revisit those years.
What really tipped the scales for me was not wanting to regret not going. So tickets were purchased!
I have low expectations for this reunion only because I don't want to be disappointed. This is what I want out of this event:
-Dinner & drinks with my honey
-Catching up with old friends
-Perhaps make some new friends
That's it. That seems reasonable to me.
Did anyone else go to their 10 year reunion? I would love to hear how it was and if you have any tips or suggestions. I'm all ears.
Love & Hugs.
