1997 High School Reunion


It has been 10 years!!! I always thought I was going to mirror the the Romy and Michelle movie not be married and make up a career like "inventing post-it notes" to impress people. (just kidding, really) You know, I was not really in the "in" crowd (maybe it was that I was band president) and there were always those popular kids that you wanted to show up ten years later. But 10 years later, I never thought that I would be in this season of my life and those years are really a blur now. I love where I am at in my life and success is defined differently.

My high school reunion is coming up on September 15th. I have been debating whether or not if I was going to go. I really was not friends with a lot of people in my grade but the one ahead of me. That is the reunion that I would have loved to gone to.

Last night, however, my mind changed. I found the website on my reunion and you can log-in put a picture of yourself, how many kids that you have, and where you are now. I found two of my best friends growing up on it, and they are going to the reunion. One I totally lost contact with in the 10 years, and the other it has been 7 years or so since we have had lunch. You can actually message them on this site, and we have been chatting back and forth.

The sad thing is, Jonathan might not be able to come because of a trip to Chicago. We are trying to work it out, but please pray he can come.

So, I might not have a Romy or a Jonathan, but it should be an adventure.

I hope Jonathan gets to go with you! I will have to do some major bribing to get Curt to go with me next year. You will have so much fun with your old friends!

You should go! It's just interesting to see what happened with people - some will surprise you and then others will be exactly what you thought!

I'm glad you changed your mind and feel good about going. I was totally dreading mine, but it ended up being way less ackward than I thought.

I wish I would have gone to my reunion! I never got anything on it - it would have been this year also! Anyway, good luck on J going. Hope you have a great time!

I thought that was Lauren Ganjavi in that picture! I thought to myself, Um I didnt know that Michelle and Lauren went to high school together?!?!? Then reality hit...I went to high school with Lauren. Anywho, just something I thought you would laugh at...

I have been debating about whether or not to go to mine as well, just because it is going to cost a ton!!! They are charging $70 per person, so if Lee and I both go...well, you can see! Is yours supposed to be that expensive? I'm still thinking about it though...

I am the same way. My 10 year is also in September, and if wasn't for my 5 year old starting school, I might have thought about going!
