I received my invitation yesterday for my 6-year high school reunion. I don’t think I’m going. For one, I was never really friends with anyone except one person in my grade. All my other friends were from the grade below me or other schools. I hardly even dated anyone at my school. I dated one guy in my grade for a few weeks and he was a new student that year. The other guys were in different grades from me.
For another, I haven’t really accomplished anything. I know this is a common reason people don’t go. I wonder if anyone ever says “wow I accomplished so much! I can’t wait to go to my high school reunion and show off!”. I hope that for the 10-year reunion my life is much more settled (have a great career, great husband (halfway to that one), great kids). Will I go to that one? I don’t know. That first issue will still be there.
