My high school reunion is next year, in fact the date has already been set for August 1, 2015. Part of me has always thought that I would love my reunion, seeing all my HS friends, dancing and enjoying the opportunity to dress up... But now I don't know.
First of all, that part of me that thought I would enjoy it wasn't planning on popping out a baby 10 months prior to that reunion. Second of all, most of my friends in high high school weren't actually in my class.
So now I have to decide, do I want to reunion-ize with those people who graduated with me? Will I be confident enough in my post-second-baby body to be in front of them, knowing the last time some of them saw me I weighed just shy of 120 lbs?
And also, do I want to I see them? In this day and age with social media I feel like I have pretty much stayed in some kind of touch with the people I wanted to stay in touch with. We might not talk or hang out, but I can I tell you the names of their kids, where they work, who they married, etc.
There are a few exceptions and some people I'd really like to see. While the majority of my classmates actually stayed in Edgecombe County, there are a few that moved away who I haven't seen in years that I'd actually like to reconnect with. But most of them are right around the corner. There are a few that are just around the corner that I'd also rather not see.
There's also the fact that it might would just be fun. It's been awhile since we've had somewhere to go where we could dance without feeling old and where I felt the need to dress up. Not to mention it would be great motivation to lose that baby weight.
While I was out with my gallbladder I watched a few movies about high school reunions such as 10 Years and American Reunion and I thought yeah, maybe I will go but then realized that the reason those people had such a good time is because they were all in the same class, including their spouses.
So, I'm torn.
Did you, or will you, go to your class reunion?
