Yep, it's been ten lovely years since I graced the halls of Cleveland High.
I told a friend recently that she was crazy for going back to attend her high school reunion... I guess I am crazy as well. The day I graduated was the day I said, "I won't be back."
About a month ago, I got a small packet of papers in the mail listing the weekends events, times and locations. I was to fill it out and return it to the 'reunion organizers.' I put it aside and didn't think twice about it; I wasn't going. There was one person that could get me to go. I didn't think she was going, I thought the 'organizers' weren't going to find her.
Then a few weeks ago, the phone rang...
"Megan? It's Alicia! How are you?" (She is my best bud from high school.)
"I'm doing good, how are you?"
"I'm doing good. Hey, are you planning on going to the reunion?" she asks already knowing my answer.
"I hadn't planned on in, why are you going?"
"Weellll, I thought I might, if you're going." (She's trying to talk me into it.)
We chit-chat for a little bit, she tells me the pros to going and...
"OK, I guess I'll go if you plan on being there." I say knowing Matt isn't going to be excited.
So because she's going and I haven't seen her and others in a long time, I will be attending my ten year reunion. I've been thinking and reflecting and wondering why it is I am so against my reunion; I can't come up with a reason. I think I just love my life now and high school was 'soooo high school.' It will be nice to see people though, most all of them I haven't seen since I graduated or soon there after. When I left Cleveland I rarely went back. There were a few people I kept in touch with, but most of them I haven't really spoken with in a few years. It will be nice to see every one's little family's; I'm excited to show off mine! I've got 2 months to get 'Cooper weight' off... As of last week I had 15lbs!!! (arg) Seems like a ton, but I gained almost 30, so I'm half way there!
Anyone else plan on going to their high school reunion?
