Reunions

So, as I mentioned yesterday, my 10-year high school reunion is coming up. What I didn’t mention is that I’ve been roped into the planning efforts. Scary.

Someone else on the “planning committee” (aka people we found first) posted a pretty interesting blog entry on her [hesitation in coming to the reunion](http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=27802207&blogID=219199230&Mytoken=BE5ED018-FF2F-467B-BC434B6371B5150445295258). (Good gracious, I just linked to a MySpace blog for the first time ever. I feel… dirty)

Basically, it comes down to the fact that during high school Amber was pretty shy and didn’t feel “in.” (Oddly, I never thought of Amber as shy, as I talked to her plenty) She had some feelings of bitterness as a result, but she’s going to give it a second chance and it sounds as though she’s decided to go to the reunion.

I had some similar thoughts as her originally (well, except the bits about religion, but whatever) and I’m going to go. One of the funniest things to me is that several people on the planning committee are so focused on decorations, locale, etc. I’m going there to see the people! I want to see what people have done with their lives! I want to see if people that I guess are doing the same old thing have done something different! I want to see if the “cool kids” are still going to be “cool”. I want to hang out with the other people that weren’t “in” that I hung out with back then.

I’ll be there. See all you [Conroe Class of 1997](http://www.marius.org/chs97/) folks in a few months. 🙂
