We all look forward to high school reunions-who got married, who has babies, who still looks 18, and who looks like they could’ve been one of our teachers! I had a great time this past weekend, and being with my classmates brought back so many memories. On Friday, a few of us took a tour of the new school (we were SO jealous!), went to the football game, and got a shout-out from the announcer. On Saturday, my mom and I hosted breakfast for some of my best friends from middle and high schools and the “big event” was that evening. I can honestly no one has aged in 10 years.
We were able to reminisce about the good ol’ days. It really felt like nothing had changed. We all meshed well and were able to talk and hang out just as we did 10 years ago. My friends are still crazy, and I must admit some of us huddled in our little corners and talked about people. (What can I say, we’re human!) The icing on the cake was my classmates spouses were really nice, too. I’m not sure if that’s an appropriate statement, but it’s truth. I’m glad to know my classmates married nice people. One regret I have is that I wish we had acknowledged our classmates who have passed. We had 2 die while we were in school and one died within the last year. Unfortunately, not everyone came; we probably had about 1/3 of graduates come back. Hopefully they will show up for the 20 year reunion…gosh, I don’t want to think that far ahead.
Being with classmates put me in a nostalgic mood. One memory that sticks out in my mind is when one of my BFFs, another classmate, and I decided to try to be grown right before graduation. I will not put what we did here on the blog, but let’s just say that somebody could have gotten in A LOT of trouble…Hey, we were in high school, thinking we were grown! What were some of your favorite memories from high school? Even if it’s been more than 10 years that you’ve been out, feel free to share. And I would love for my classmates to respond and share what they loved about the reunion…and high school! Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
