Saturday night - Scott and I ordered a pizza and watched "Drillbit Taylor". The movie is pretty much about some high school bullys and I was telling Scott I would not want to go back to high school for anything. College, yes - in a minute, but high school no.
I had a great high school experience. I grew up in a tiny town and graduated with 50 people (and that was one of the biggest classes). I got to be apart of anything I wanted to do - cheerleading, FBLA, national honor society. The kids in our town go to a high school that is bigger than my college was. It's HUGE. I can't imagine going to a school that big.
Lately - I've had a lot of fun by scanning in old, old pictures and posting them on facebook so I can tag all my old friends. It's fun to laugh at how much we've changed. I can't believe I've been out of high school for SEVENTEEN years. (Geez I'm old!)
This is part of my class at a graduation brunch at my house. We were the class with all the fun - we were the class of 91. ha!
This is my sophomore year of cheering. If we spent half as much time on our cheers as we did on fluffing our bangs and spraying them stiff - we could have been a championship squad. This was the best part of high school to me - cheering. I loved it so much!
This is a bunch of us at our 10 year reunion. Since our class was so small - we had a joint reunion with the class in front of us and behind us. It was so much fun. I put it together and I will never do that again. But I do hope someone organizes a 20 year for us because it's fun to see how people have changed or not changed and what their families look like. I truly liked all the people I graduated with and I love running into them. At our 2o year reunion - there will be a lot of my classmates who have 19 or 20 year old children and could even be grandparents and then there will be a few like me who have 2 year olds and everything in between. I don't know if anyone's life turned out exactly like they thought it would on graduation day.
The day I graduated - I planned to go to OBU, meet my husband, become a doctor (ha ha ha ha! yes I was pre-med for 2 years), have children as soon as I got out of med school - by 26 or so and live happily ever after. God knows the plans He has for us. My life didn't turn out anything like I thought but I would dare say it's much better. I certainly never dreamed I would be having my first child at 35. But I'm thankful and blessed for the road God has taken me on. I can't wait to see what lies ahead.
What about you? Did you life turn out like you thought it would be on graduation day?
