High School Memories
My 30th high school reunion was this past weekend and living 10 hours away I had toyed with the idea of going to it, but decided it would just be too expensive and hard to work out. I had lots of mixed feelings being that I didn't have the best experience in high school. I think others out there can relate. I was bullied at times by other girls, and actually couldn't wait for high school to be done so I could graduate and move on with my life. I have wondered sometimes what my high school friends were doing. When I decided to join Facebook I hooked up with some of my old "peeps" and compared notes on our lives. My daughter is going into 10th grade and to her high school of course is the biggest thing in her life right now. She is building much better memories than I had. I have told her more than once that high school is just part of your life. More things are waiting in the future - graduating high school, graduating college, getting married, having children. Looking back and reflecting on the 30 years since high school I realized that high school was part of my life, but that my life really began when I met my husband and started my family. My hubby brought a son to our marriage and he and I have always got along even from the first time we met. My relationship with my stepson is one I feel very lucky to have!
