10 Year High School Reunion!

This past weekend I received a "save the date" invite through Facebook for my 10 Year High School Reunion! HOLY COW! Its seriously been 10 years since I graduated from high school! SCARY!

I have to admit I experienced mixed feelings about the invite. There was that of excitement with the idea of seeing so many of the people I grew up with and also that of anxiety because I haven't seen so many of these people in sooooo long. I can't help but wonder... "What will they think of me now?"

In high school I was a cheerleader and about 20 lbs lighter than I am today...

I had dreams of being a FBI agent, but ended up working in the world of fundraising...

I was more outgoing back then... however, now I'm much more introverted...

I had planned to have kids by age 24, but now I'm 28 and don't even know if I want them period...

People that I was extremely close to back then... I hardly even talk to now...

It's funny how things change. How people come in and out of your life. How the dreams you had at age 18 are no longer the same dreams you have today. How personalities and lifestyles are different than what you imagined.


Even though there is that feeling of nervousness associated with seeing people I haven't seen in 10 years it doesn't overcome the feeling of excitement I feel about reconnecting with the past. Yes, I have changed... but I bet everyone else has as well and that isn't such a bad thing :)
