I'm horrible at keeping in contact with people... As most of you know. Unless I have an easy way of contacting you (blog, email, text, etc) I'm bad at picking up the phone and calling people. I always have been. I think that's why I never kept in contact with all my high school friends. I'd get a card from them, or a phone call, but I'd never return them. How sad.
I've been making the extra effort in returning calls and emails though. Really, I have. I guess it's really more that I'm "forced" to now. lol Since accepting to be on the reunion committee I've had to return a lot of emails and calls. Unfortunately since we dragged our feet entirely too long with the reunion process we had to go with just a get together instead of a full-blown reunion. We'll have a company ran reunion for our 25 year anniversary. For our 20 yr, we're just having a party. At a bar. At a small dive. Yep. A bar. lol I guess it could be worse. Oh well. It should be fun seeing all my old friends. Friends that I'll promise to keep in touch with but soon will fade again.
Let me leave you with a few more high school photos. Please keep the laughter to a minimum. I'm the one in the red cap and gown. I went to my senior prom with my friend David. He was such a sweet guy. I always wondered what became of him. Well I just found out. He's very local, as in Seal Beach! He works for Merrill Lynch as their Resident Director and Wealth Management Advisor. *edited: Right after I submitted this post, my office phone rang. Guess who it is?! Yep. He got my number from one of the other committee members and decided to give me a call. He's stressed, but doing well. He's been married for 9 years, and has two little girls. The best part of this committee is catching up with long lost friends. Life is good.
Awe. I love my old high school friends. :) Good times. Good times.
