POWAY -- Although the anniversary has come and passed, I'll be celebrating my 10-year high school reunion tonight.
My early enthusiasm to see everyone again is slowly giving way to trepidation. It may surprise some of my loyal readers, but I wasn't the most popular kid at Poway High School.
Without a circle of close friends, I'm largely going to the reunion to see how everyone has changed. I'm an observer so I know I'll have a good time on that score alone.
One of my regrets is that I won't be able to be in two places at the same time. Roswell High School choose this night to have their reunion as well. Having transferred to Poway in 1994, I don't know if I would be welcome there, but it would be great to see some familiar faces if only for a night.
It's a big reunion weekend. In addition to the Poway and Roswell events, my parents are attending their 20th reunion in SLC.
All these events hearken back to an earlier time. I recall some of the things that I was when I was 10 years younger. Obviously life doesn't always live up to expectations, but I wonder about all those days that went past.
One of the things that our organizer is providing is an e-book of photos and people's updates. I had to condense 10 years of my life down into a few paragraphs. It was tough but this is what I came up with:
It's pretty concise of the bright highlights of the past 10 years. I'm off to check some old yearbooks and to get ready. Here's hoping they have karaoke. :-D
