|yea that's a castle in the background (where my senior prom was held....no big deal)|
I don't have particularly bad memories like I do of college, but I also don't have a million warm and fuzzy memories that I want to relive. With Facebook, Instagram, and all modern technology I pretty much feel like I'm keeping up with classmates without having to stay friends. Is that horrible? Well, it's true. I also have a tendency to hold on to grudges (oooh so Kristan you made out with my boyfriend my Junior year of high school-yup not letting it go) and I'm afraid that if we go I'll just be cold and competitive.
On the other hand these are people that shared a part of my childhood. They struggled with going to college in the states from Germany and being perceived as different. They understand deployments, military slang, and the issues we faced as Military brats that only WE get. It might be nice to go and catch up and see how people are now and what they're up to. It'd be nice to see who people ended up marrying and if they've started a family. It'd be fun to hear from the people that stayed in Europe and took a different route with their lives.
Whether I go or not, I stay in contact with those from high school that matter to me. My best friend Megan and I met in this high school and I'm so grateful for that. It's ten years later and we're still best friends and such a big part of each others lives, so really we win.
Not that it's a competition. :-)
Would you or did you go to your high school reunion?
