Wow, that was a long time ago, yet at moments seems like just yesterday. It’s funny, cuz when I look back at who I was then, seems like I’m someone completely different today. But, the truth is, I’m not.
People tell me all the time, how much I’ve changed since high school…. but it’s not necessarily me who has changed so drastically, its my actions. I’m still the same opinionated, strong-willed (sometimes crazy) girl that I was….the difference is I’m just not DOING what I used to do all the time back then. I think I’ve learned to channel my inner qualities to a better use, and thats the difference.
So, what does that have to do with now??? This weekend back home there is a huge school-wide shindig for anyone who graduated from my High School. They are tearing down the old building to make room for the new, upgraded model. It’s a time for everyone to come say goodbye to the old and re-live their high school memories, and a bunch of my high school friends are going back for the occasion.
I’m just bummed that I can’t be there. No re-living memories for me.
Whether its the “old” me or the “new” me or a combination of both, there’s one thing I know for sure. It’s the first time I’ve actually been homesick for my high school…..
