The look on my face in just about every picture is one of out of control excitement. You'd think I had just won a Nobel Prize. It was just high school...like I wasn't going to graduate.
Plus I'm not sure if I've ever posted pictures from this brief period of life that I decided a perm on short hair was a good idea. Big mistake, as you can imagine. I had just seen City of Angels with Meg Ryan. And I've mentioned before how I idolized her hair for quite sometime. I couldn't pull it off. Not even close. My hair looked exceptionally hideous that night. I'll blame it on the graduation cap. Yeah, that's it.
Graduation was held on a week night on our football field. Then the whole graduating class hopped on some buses and we spent the entire night at Disneyland...open through the night only to graduating seniors. We got back on the bus at like seven the following morning. Oh man... good times.
I was such an Aquabat fan and they were playing in Tomorrow Land that night. I still have some old cd's that my kids love.
I seriously LOVED high school. Really and truly loved it. Make fun of me all you wish. I can't remember ever being quite as uninhibited as I was then. I really enjoyed life and savored every part of the whole high school experience.
My reunion is coming up in October and it KILLS me that I won't be going. Seriously almost to the point of tears. Every time I get more info on it in the mail I have to check plane tickets like I'm somehow going to find a miraculous $70 flight or something. No luck...so far. I hear ten year reunions are a big disappointment, but I want the experience. Maybe I'm hoping to relive high school for a night. It was, after all, the last time I was popular. I'd love to see old friends that I've lost touch with. All I know is that I'm going to be disappointing a lot of people by not showing up. (joke.)
I want to know who's going? Anybody? Please tell me you're not...it'll be easier for me not to go if my closest friends aren't.
