I was talking to someone the other day about attending my high school reunion and they made a side comment such as “why bother, you can see everything/everyone on Facebook nowadays anyway…”. Perhaps, but I cannot HUG anyone on Facebook. At least not yet.
I love people. I always have.
I also love to see people that I have known for a long time.
Maybe the connections are different for me because I am an extrovert, because I enjoyed high school and because I have known some of the people I hugged last Saturday since I was five.
Maybe it’s because I am nostalgic for the stories about how I tripped in front of everyone in the student commons on the first day of my Sophomore year or how I hardly knew anyone next to me at graduation, because there were so many of us and how one of the guy cheerleaders got escorted out of the ceremony for doing a
n AWESOME back flip across the stage when he got his diploma.
Maybe, just maybe I think it is extremely fun to go back in time a little bit and remember the “good old days” of my times as a teenager and spend some time again with those I grew up with – the people who helped make me who I am today.
Maybe all of these things are true.
And, much more than a “maybe”, I had a fabulous time at my 20th high school reunion last Saturday night.
After all, this extrovert likes to talk, reconnect and take photographs so how could I not?
Here’s to the WARRIORS, Class of ’93!!
It was a great night! There’s talk of another one in five years… I can’t wait!
