St. Cloud High School Class of 1995

Last weekend I went to my high school reunion. I didn't really want to go because I hated St. Cloud High. When I was growing up, I attended three different high schools. By the time I went to St.Cloud, I was tired of moving and changing lives. I did well there and I wasn't miserable, but I just didn't feel connected to people the way I did in Connecticut. I decided to go to the reunion purely out of curiosity.

We got there a little late (on purpose) and I got nervous. I knew ahead of time that all the people I hung out with weren't going to be there. I was worried that Phil and I would be sitting alone the entire evening just people watching, and no one would remember me. We walked up to the registration table and received a packet. Inside the packet was our class picture. I looked the same then as I do now!

We ended up sitting with someone I sang with in chorus and was in FCA with. He remembered me and we chatted for a bit. Phil actually got the conversation started because he kept checking his cell phone for football scores. This guy from high school overheard Phil talking at me (yes, talking at me because I tend to tune out all the football talk) about the games, and started to talk to Phil about them.

Then they showed the famous slide show. I wasn't in any of the pictures and neither were any of the band and chorus people. Figures!

I caught up to one of the girls I hung out with a lot. As it turns out, so works for the government as a special agent. She carries a gun everyday! Craziness! Later in the evening, I caught up with a girl I played flute next to in band. She was my biggest competition (even though she probably had no idea). She was one of those natural talents. She was so good that even when she was high, she still played better than me! It always pissed me off. As it turns out, she is now a high school English teacher. We ended up talking for a long time. It was interesting, to say the least. I then caught up with another girl I sang with in chorus. She's doing real well.

The night was so exciting that Phil and I decided to end the evening early. After doing the Electric Slide, finishing my Corona, and saying goodbye to two people, we left. I was asleep on my couch before 11 o'clock that night!

My two favorite quotes of the evening:
1) "Wow! I paid all that money and drove a long way just to see people I never spoke to in high school."
2) "Yeah, we weren't part of the popular crowd. We didn't think it was cool to get drunk in a pasture with the cows."

Go Bulldogs!

"At the moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world.

Some are running scared...
Some are coming home...
Some tell lies to make it through the day...
Others are just now facing the truth...
Some are evil men at war with good...
And some are good struggling with evil...

Six billion people in the world...
Six billion souls...
And sometimes...all you need is one."
--Peyton on One Tree Hill

I love you, Phil

If you read this, even if we do not speak often, comment with one memory of me.
It can be anything you want, good or bad.
Just as long as it happened.
Then post this on your blog/livejournal to see what other people remember about you.
