My 30th high school reunion is this fall. Whoa. I went on to the class reunion website today to fill out my profile. I also signed up to receive emails when certain classmates updated their info.
As I read through the list of 524 students, the memories came flooding back. I saw names that I remembered hearing, but could not put a face with. I thought of folks I had forgotten for 30 years. I felt like I was in high school again: Does that person want me to stay in touch? Do they care about me? What would they think? Do they remember me?
I was never part of the "in" crowd. It always seemed like I was trying to fit in. I guess that made me a normal teenager, but it was not very comfortable. Should be interesting to see these people again. I'm going to get out my old annuals and begin remembering names and faces.
I would much rather just remember the old times than go back and live them again. I'm glad that I'm not who I was.
