10 Years

Last night was my 10 year high school reunion. How did 10 years go so fast? I was actually pretty excited because I loved high school. I had a great group of close friends and we did a lot of fun things, even though we weren't into drinking and partying. I also think I had a pretty unique class, because although there were definite cliques or groups of friends, we also got along really well as a whole. We won Winter Carnival as freshman! I knew every person in my class and would have felt comfortable talking to any of them. Other than stalking checking in on people on Facebook, I really have only kept in touch with a few people.

I started the night at Gritty's McDuff's Brew Pub because I knew I'd need some liquid courage. I met my 2 close friends that I still see, but our friend Jason also came. I don't think I'd seen him since high school. It was so fun to catch up and get to know his wife as we plowed through nachos, fried mushrooms, and chicken tenders. Before we left we did a round of tequila shots.

 We were a fashionably half an hour late for reunion, so quite a few people were already there. We got about 85 out of the 150 people in our graduating class, which is pretty good. I seriously had a blast. Everyone was pretty tipsy, and it was strange seeing people that were so straight laced in high school drunk and crazy. I think I talked to almost every person there. It was especially nice to catch up with the people I was really friendly with in high school but haven't stayed in touch with at all.

As the night went on, we started grooving out to some awesome old school music- Coolio's Gangster's Paradise, TLC's Waterfalls, and Spice Girls Tell Me What You Want.

The reunion technically ended at 10, but we didn't leave until 11, and then we just went across the street to a bar. I didn't get home until close to 2. I am feeling my age today. It was so worth it though, it was a blast!

Have you been to any of your reunions?

  1. That is so awesome that you went and had a good time! My 10 year would have been last spring and I have no idea if they did anything.
