10 years seemed so far off!

Back in May of 2002 when I walked across that stage to receive my high school diploma, 10 years seemed SO far off.

I still remember Vitamin C’s graduation song “Friends Forever” playing as we threw our caps up in the air.



10 years felt more like eternity.

Didn’t believe it when people said time flies after high school. But it is so so true.

It just kind of hit me today; NEXT year is my 10 year class reunion.

As I reflect on these past years I think about where I am versus where I thought I’d be. I think about where others will be in their life as we all gather to reconnect again.

Every time I think of my reunion, it takes me back to the movie Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.

I guess I could always say I invented the post-it notes?!?!? (If you’ve never seen the movie, you won’t get that, ha)

This is by far my favorite scene in the whole movie while they’re at the reunion.



Maybe my best friend Melissa and I could pull this dance off??

10 years did seem way far off, but guess not as far as I thought!

Girl! That dance cracked me up! I forgot how cheesy it was. But, could you imagine someone busting that out at your reunion?? lol. I'm class of '02 as well and don't want to think about the reunion really. Not just b/c I feel older, but b/c I've completely distanced myself from that town and am DEF. not the person I was when I graduated. I'd hate to revisit memories I'd rather just leave behind. u know?

Is it bad that I still cannot listen to that Friends Forever song without tearing up?!? My ten year reunion is this summer. I can't even believe it...

Isn't that crazy?!? I feel like I was in high school yesterday. Time goes so fast! I love Romie and Michelle-hilarious. : ) Can't believe that will be you next year!

When you posted that on Twitter, I had to count and think, but yup, I graduated in 2002 and that makes my 10 year reunion next year too! I couldn't even believe it. Granted, I've been married for 4 years this year so I guess it makes sense that we'd be approaching a big milestone. Are you planning on going to your reunion?

I love that song! And we won't discuss how long ago my 10 year reunion was... ;)

I can totally relate. I recently found a lot of grammar school and high school friends on facebook and they're pushing for a reunion, time just flew by! I graduated HS in '03 so I'm close to the 10year, too.

I love that movie! and that scene!

Isn't it CRAZY how fast time flies! I'm a new reader but I just had to comment because it really is crazy how time flies.
