I have a huge high school reunion coming up next month. I must say I’m still shocked it has been that many years since I graduated high school. :-/ Where has the time gone?

Originally, I’d planned to attend, but then National happened and my mom decided to go out of town almost at the exact same time as the reunion. So it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. I’m really not sure how I feel about missing it. I suppose it would be worse if I kept in touch with a lot of people from my class, but I don’t. I was one of those people who moved away from my hometown fairly early, so the connection was severed.

As the reunion draws nearer, I find myself recalling my high school years. I’m not one of those people who had a miserable time in high school. It certainly had its moments, but over all I enjoyed those years.

With that said, I wouldn’t want to go back and relive them. I’m nostalgic by nature, but I don’t believe high school was the best years of my life. God, I hope not. I know there are a lot of people who believe those were their Glory Days. I personally think that’s sad considering how short those years are in respect to the rest of your life.

What do you think? Does life stop or start after high school?

  1. I loved high school, it was a blast! But that’s because of my awesome friends. I’m still friends with most of them and last October we all got together for a weekend in Vegas. Oh, that was such fun and much better as adults with plenty of money and no curfews. Much better than being a teenager. (Although we acted like teenagers for a couple of days!)

  2. I enjoyed high school, definitely! High school in the early to mid-eighties was awesome!

    But not the best years of my life. No way. I wouldn’t trade them for anything, and I wish I’d known then what I know now because a few things would have changed, but overall, life for me began after high school!

  3. Sylvia,

    I think it’s great that you’ve kept in touch with your friends. I think moving away so early after high school changed a lot for me. Well, I changed a lot. (Living in L.A. for eight years will do that to you.) We just lost all our commonality.


    It sounds like we went to high school about the same time. I’d definitely change a few things too if I knew then what I know now. High school would have been a lot more fun. LOL! 😉 I agree with you about life beginning after school ends.
