I have debated, weighed the pros and cons, pondered, basically changed my mind at whim…why? Yep. It’s 10-year-reunion time. I’m going (I think?)…but not without fear(s).
1. My husband. Although I have a very handsome and (in my eyes) successful hubby, he will not be able to attend my high school reunion. I’m sure he is glad to get out of it…lol…but I feel like my security blankie has just been flushed down the toilet! PLUS…hubby is a soldier and I absolutely do not want my reunion to turn into a political debate. Might kinda put a damper on the “fun”. I plan to take lots of pics of him and my cute doggies for people to see. He exists! I swear! lol
2. I’m no longer 110 lbs. I know I still look alright, but seriously, in high school I was super thin. Kinda hard to not look fatter than 110, ya know? So far I am on track to be at my goal weight by September (no…not 110), but I still feel very self-conscious about going.
3. People are judgemental. So I’m a waitress. Yes, I make much more than people might think…but like I am gonna go around telling everyone how much I make! It is just silly that those who do not work at all might look down on my profession. *sigh* I imagine running into a former bimbo telling me she is now a rocket scientist for NASA and then smiling with perfect veneers and asking, “So what do you do?” I’m just gonna have to suck it up and deal with it I guess.
Despite all these fears, I want to go to the reunion. I had lots of friends in different circles. So even though my best friends might not attend, there are plenty of others that I would like to catch up with. Many I have only contacted through myspace and not seen since ’98, so that is the fun part.
So did you go to your 10 year reunion? And if not, why? If so, how did it go?
