What To Do...

I have a bit of a dilemma.... My 10 year high school reunion is coming up rather quickly - like in June or something and I don't know if I want to go or not.

Granted there are people that I would like to catch up with - but really I blog stalk them or just check out their facebook pages - don't judge me - I know you do it too! But really, there are maybe a dozen or so people that I do that with. Everyone else??? I don't really care.

The thing is - I moved into that area the day before 7th grade started and didn't expect to be there for too long - we moved a lot and I figured it would be the same. Well, it was, except that we stayed in the same school district and I stayed at the same High School. I changed groups of friends several times and to be quite honest, haven't really kept in touch with anyone from High School.

Not only that - but I am an entirely different person now, as compared to High School. I just wasn't an extremely "good" person. I am not proud of some of the things I said or did in High School - and I don't want to be remembered by people for those things... I don't think I really found myself until I got to College and then I rediscovered myself when I served a mission, and even then have changed into a different person again after being home and in graduate school and married now... But people don't care - I've already had plenty of opportunities to recognize that - They don't care who I am now - they just care that I hurt their feelings or whatever in high school....

I don't think I want to go - is that so bad?

No, not at all. I say High School Reunions are OVERRATED! (Even though I haven't even had one yet!) haha I guess I'm no help!
