Is 28 really that old?

August 12, 2006

All things considered, I think not.

But tonight is my 10 year high school reunion and I’m having a little trouble believing that it’s been that long! At this moment, dozens of my former classmates are getting dolled up and ready to party like it’s 1996 all over again. I cannot go because 1) it’s a bit of a drive back to Merrillville 2) I had a youth council overnight in Hopkinsville last night and Harrison, John and I just got back a little bit ago so there’s no way I could have made it and 3) tomorrow is Sunday and an official work (and worship) day! In a way, I wish I could go, but at the same time I don’t feel so left out. So much has happened since high school and I wonder if I would even know what to say! It’s a weird feeling.

Anyway, I hope all of my MHS classmates have an awesome time and I hope that the ones I’ve kept up with say nice things about me. 🙂

  1. Twenty-eight feels old to me. I mean, I don’t feel old, but I feel like my life is wasting away with nothing to show for it. I, like you, graduated ’96 and am having my reunion this year. Although I could go, I am definitely not. I would like to know how others are doing and what they are doing, but I just can’t see any reason why I should go and have to share of the nothingness that my life has come to. Hopefully that’s a “come to thus far”, but for all I know this is it! I don’t need to celebrate that by sharing it over and over and over again!

  2. For the record, I just want to mention that I don’t think that Jenny’s life thus far amounts to “nothingness.” I bet she’d tell the most interesting stories at her 10 year reunion!

  3. Except people don’t go to H.S. reunions to hear interesting stories! H.S. reunions are all about seeing who has succeeded, who has gotten fat, and who has failed altogether! (I’m really not bitter as it might sound. I’m just statting. If you could “hear” me that would be apparent.) I’m just saying….that’s all. 🙂 But, for the record, my H.S. reunion will be totally lame and I have no desire to go. My class wasn’t what you would call “bonded” in any way. There is no desire to attend!
