Party Peeps

Now we know what those crazy chicks do in the off season...

On less crazy topics (or maybe more so), I just (seconds ago) received an invitation to my 15yr high school reunion. When did I get so old?? I want to go, but I'm not sure. When I went to the 10yr reunion, it was like I became that same insecure shy kid all over again. I've grown a lot since high school, but what is it about the same old people that makes me retreat back into myself?

I vowed after my 20-year, I would not go back again.

Finally, you did a little post. I went to my 10 year and this is my 20 year this year. I might go, depends on where and how much it costs and how tiny the meal is.

I'm the same way Tami. I went to my 10yr, back in '05, and totally retreated back to my old shy/quiet/reserved self, except for with the people I had become friends with after high school. I have totally come out of my shell, but with old classmates, I clam up and get as nervous to talk to them as I did back then (yeah, you wouldn't believe how shy I was...oh wait..you do). =)

I am thinking Meeko must've taken that photo. He hasn't been around here much. ;-)

I say, buy the hottest dress you can find, have your hair done, doll yourself up with makeup, dig yourself up a date, or a buddy to go with (male friend would be best) and go. I loved mine.

You look great, you have done well, and you should be proud. The best way to go is to be surrounded by good friends from the time period. As for the other people, the phrase "fake it 'til you make it" describes how I deal. I just pretend to be as hot and confident as I should be.

Don't you love those peeps photos? Too funny!

Dude, I'm with Joie. You look a million times better than your old classmates anyway! Go knock 'em dead and have a blast. Going to my reunion was the best thing I ever did for the little HS nerd inside me! KICK BUTT AND TAKE NAMES GIRLIE! Heck, I'll totally go be your support buddy... but I'm not male. :) Anyway, who cares what the HS turds think! JUST GO!

Awesome peep pics, btw!

I have six more years until my 10th HS reunion, and I will admit I do wonder if I will go or not. The part of me that wants to go is the part that remembers all the fun times and great memories, but the part of me that doesnt want to go is the insecure part that makes me wonder if my "light" is still burning or if it burnt out after graduation... So, if you dont go, dont worry...I totally understand.

Tami!!! Are you OK?

Hey, where have you gone? We've all be waiting for your latest musings. Hope all is well.
