H.S. reunion

Somehow I have been graduated from high school for 10 years.

A whole frickin' decade.

At least we were creative with party themes, right?

In 10 years, I've conquered a few things.

College, landed a job, moved three times, moved in with the BF and even made a really adult decision bought a house, started a blog and met all kinds of cool people in Cleveland, watched friends get married and have babies and taken a few vacations in the process.

The reason I'm thinking about all of this because of three words: high school reunion.

My friend is in charge of planning the reunion and we had quite the texting conversation this past week. I know nothing about planning a reunion and quite frankly I'm not sure how many people will come back. Out of my friends, they live all from Chicago to LA to DC with only a handful still around Cleveland.

My first thought was have a low key party at a bar and keep it simple, right? She informed me that people have it all weekend long with a low key Friday night and then a dinner on Saturday at a hotel where people can stay. Who knew!

So, the bigger question is, would you or would you not go to your high school reunion? And if you do, what the hell is the event supposed to be like?
Can you spot me?

I went to mine last year. It seemed like the people who showed up were the people who no longer lived in town, and the people who still lived in Memphis didn't show up! So maybe that means you'll have a good turn out.

We did low-key bar on Friday and had an open bar at a venue on Beale Street on Saturday. Both were really fun, and I'm glad I went. It seems like HS reunions are something everyone kind of stresses about until they go and then they enjoy it.

I think I will go if our school actually had one. And I'm guessing your the one in front with the two tone hair! :)

Ha, I love that you posted pics from HS. You are much braver than me!

My 10-year is this year as well. But I don't think we are planning one. Usually, the Prez and VP of the class are in charge. The VP would be me (nerd alert), and I know that the Prez isn't doing anything. But I think it would be fun to see where everyone has landed and what they're doing!

I guess that's what Facebook is for these days.

I will absolutely attend my 10-year reunion. It's next year - and I can't wait. ;)

Girrrrrrllll, this May will be my 16th(!!!!) year since I graduated high school. How did that even happen!?

Regardless, I went to my 10-year reunion and have ZERO desire to go to another one. I never really stayed in touch with people from my high school (since I moved there my sophomore year) & after that, had no real desire to reconnect with anyone.

BTW, ours was really lame, with a DJ at a stupid party center. Maybe 40 people showed up (and most of whom still live in the area).

I think my friends would make me go because I'm one of the only chicas still living in Cleveland. They'd want a full report from me!

I went to my 10 year HS reunion. It was low-key, slightly tacky and really eye opening. But I'm so glad I went, helped me to move on from some lingering high school resentment
