joker card

Back from the dead . . . sort of

Well . . . I finally heard a couple of weeks ago that my high school graduating class (Howard High School in Ellicott City, MD) will be having a 10 year reunion.

I will openly admit that my high school experience was a mixed bag. On one hand, I got along well with a lot of people, enjoyed my classes etc; yet I did not fit in with any group. I wasn't athletic/artistic/really smart, I never went to parties, never really hung out with people outside of school, didn't go to dances or prom, was really quiet. I also was going through a time where I was really sensitive to what other people thought of me (how I acted/dressed, etc). If I could go back in time and change my high school experience, would I? I'd say not really, for better or worse, the decisions I've made in my past (good/bad) have made me what I am.

But as I've gotten older, I've learned to not give a shit what other people think (the only exception to this rule is my parents). As long as I don't harm anyone, I'll always walk down my own path in life. I do know that a few people in my graduating class are married and/or have kids now. Would that be something for me? That I do not know . . I know I'd be a good dad/husband, and yet I cannot decide if it is right for me. But I'm going into this reunion open minded and hoping for the best and see how people have (or have not) changed in 10 years.

Have fun at your reunion Jason. High school is awkward for anyone I'd reckon. That time is just an odd spot to be in, as a teenager. Let's just be glad we all made it through lol
