So like I mentioned, our class reunion is coming up. I volunteered to meet up with the organizer and go through some ideas and help find some people.
Well, because the anal project manager in me makes it so, I went through and put our class in a spreadsheet from our yearbook. As I'm looking through the pictures, very little came rushing back.
Honestly? who ARE these people? many i remember, i do. but i had to flip back through the sports and club pages to see if maybe a few jogged my memory. not so much. and i was pretty involved in high school. but it really is a blur. it's been a long 10 years.
stacey- who on earth was clifford hosaflook and how have we never picked on that name?! he looks big, however. and possibly footballesque. which might be why we left him alone. or maybe he picked on me? if so, i'm sorely disappointed in 1995 sj.
looking at other pictures, and reading quotes, i'm wondering what they turned out to be like. did the 'roids catch up with a few of these guys? were the pretty and popular girls still beautiful and living a glamorous life? did any of the unpopular and not so pretty turn into lovely swans with or without plastic surgery?
and of course, it makes you wonder what kind of impression you'll make. i mean, i haven't seen 95 percent of these people in 10 years. what do they expect me to look like? will I be easily recognized? will no one know who I am? will someone say -- ooh- the years were not so kind to her? (if so, i don't want to know about it)
i am sad to say that i recognized at least three divorces that i personally know of, which seems so ... well, sad. a lot can happen in 10 years. i'm looking forward to the event with mixed trepidatious feelings and excited feelings. i'm mostly looking at this as a chance to reconnect with people with the person i am now. maybe i'll come away with a whole batch of new friends, or maybe it will make me appreciate my friends that i have now all the more. and js and i have vowed that shopping and new outfits are definitely in order.
So many books...
