My 10 year high school reunion is coming up in July. 10 years! I can’t believe how long it’s been. Am I interested in going? Oh hell yes! Why? I have no idea, but I know I’m going to make it fun for myself. That’s for sure. I never really understood the point of reunions before this week. I mean why would you ever want to see those people again? It was probably the time in your life where you were most ignorant to how the “real world” worked so chances are you probably didn’t come off being very smart. I know I didn’t. So I’m doing this to prove to other people I’ve grown up a little? I’m happy with just myself, my family, and my friends knowing that. Is it to reconnect yourself with people you haven’t seen or talked to in a while? Why? There’s obviously a reason these people leave your life. If I wanted to stay in contact with them, I would have.
So I did say I felt this way up until this week. Well, I kind of understand it now. You simply do somehow lose track of people that you do want to keep in touch with and the reunion does help you find them. I’ve had a couple people either call me or e-mail me this week that I haven’t talked to for forever now and it actually has been great to hear from them.
So yeah. I feel old. Questions just get brought up that you don’t want to hear and have trouble answering. How did I get to be 27 so damn quickly? Am I happy where I am in life? What do I want to accomplish before the 20 year reunion? I guess my general feeling is I’m happy. Why wouldn’t I be? Got good family and friends. My job doesn’t suck and I make good money at it. I also know I’m capable of more so that leads me to believe it will just get better.
Where was I going with this? I’m not so sure. Alright, back to work.
