Ten Years Later.

Where to even begin....first of all, I was severely sleep deprived yesterday. From Thursday night through Monday morning, the hours I had slept were minimal. I know they say you can't catch up on sleep, but I'm certainly going to give it a try this week. Apparently I've been having TOO much fun lately.

Even though I've been running on fumes, it has been totally worth it. All of it. Every single second of it. And since I can't really talk about my weekend without divulging some personal information, I'm just going to suck it up and do it. I can't hide my age forever, at least not in this day and age. So, here it goes...on Saturday, I went to my ten-year high school reunion. Yes, that's right. TEN YEARS. It seems like only a few years have gone by, but then you see everyone and realize that indeed time has been ticking away. Some people changed, some people looked exactly the same. But the great part about the evening was how people who maybe weren't that close in high school were actually talking to each other and seemingly having a great time. The venue was a small local winery, but since the turn out wasn't very high, it was appropriate. Not to mention the outdoor space was pretty beautiful.
I wasn't about to go to this thing by myself (to be honest, I probably would've backed out), so I asked my friends Tyler and Cheyne if I could ride with them. I had the BEST time. I wasn't sure what to expect from the whole thing because of how shy I can be, but it was easy. People were friendly, there wasn't a whole lot of awkward conversations and the three hour mingling flew by. Before I knew it, we were taking a group photo and the staff was trying to kick us out. Luckily, we continued the party and stayed out well into the night. There was some drama after the official reunion, but I'd say it was pretty minimal. Same old B.S. girl drama. I wouldn't expect anything different though! When it was time to call it a night,  Cheyne drove me back home while Tyler slept in the backseat. They're crazy and drove in from Nevada the same day and drove back home the same night. Needless to say I was super thankful he brought me home since I live in the opposite direction of where they needed to go.
Cheyne and me...the matching part was unintentional. Best part was, his shoes had a bit of orange on them which went with my purse. Love it.

Now that it's over, I'm actually a little sad. Over the years I've had a hard time because being in school was so easy. Keeping friends close wasn't hard because you spent all of your time with them. Now, you have to make an effort to see them after working all day or making time on the weekends, which shouldn't be difficult, but sometimes that's hard for me to do. I am hopeful that I'll be able to keep in touch with some of the people I reconnected with because it would be such a shame not to. Now if only we could have a 15 year reunion to look forward to instead of just a 20 year.
