Thanks to social media, I have been able to stay in touch with many of my friends from childhood and high school. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to reconnect with these people in person at my 20-year high school reunion. Let's just say that it was an eye-opening experience.
Though I knew and interacted with lots of people in high school, regardless as to their clique, I was not popular by any stretch of the imagination. I went to high school with many people that I have known since early childhood, years of league soccer, the Al Davies Boys and Girls Club and just from my neighborhood. I was a Gleek! Choir was my life so most of my closest friendships were with my choir mates.

Friday night, my main choir crew got together for karaoke and it was like…coming home. Family. It was like the first day of school after a 20-yr summer vacation.

Saturday night was the official reception. I don’t know what I expected but it was like high school with drink tickets. Everyone came in and worked the room; speaking to those they recognized and then fell into cliques; jocks, cheerleaders, student government, choir and then a hodgepodge of everyone else. I had a great time catching up with everyone but the whole experience helped me realize how non-social I am.

Ultimately, I went to a beautiful school and had some amazing experiences there. I was thankful for the chance to go back and reflect on that time in my life. Would I want to relive it? Absolutely not! I am thankful for the lessons that my high school years taught me and for the person they helped shape me into.
