52720-high-school-reunionOn Saturday night I went to my High School Reunion at Gypsy Blu in Ambler. There were about 40 of so past class members that showed up and everyone had an excellent time. It struck me as odd that not that many people want to go to their High School Reunion due to social anxiety. My take is, “who really gives a shit?” People seem to be scared of who they are and what people may think of them. Like re-living high school all over again. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience catching up with people who I haven’t seen in 15 years.

It’s cool to have conversations with people who are the same age and lived during the same period of time you did. We all have the same types of life problems now and it was fun catching up. I noticed it was even easier talking to people who you never used to talk to before. Plus you get to re-visit memories that you would have never thought about if that person wasn’t there. Another main reason was because I know there were people who spent time planning it and it didn’t feel right not to show up.
