HOLY SH!!!!T !!

I never really quite understood the purpose of the "Panic" button on the car's remote key thingy, but I sure feel like pressing it now because I'm in panic mode.

I just received an email that they're starting to organize our 2007 High School reunion! *hyperventilates*. OMG! Ten years ? Already ?

I can't see myself going really. But how can I not go and miss out on seing all the people I haven't seen in 10 years ? But how can I go there, fatter than ever, admitting to everyone that I'm a freakin' secretary? I'm so ashamed to admit that, moreso to people that 'knew' me. I'm bound to have to answer the "So what do you do?" question a million times if I go. Is it worth making myself sick for a year thinking about this stinking reunion ? Yes there are things that I'm proud of, like my home, my dog, the other things about me besides the job I hold... but people will be passing around pictures of their kids, I can't possibly pass around pictures of my house and a resume of my interresting hobbies....

Did you go to your reunion ? Are you planning to go ? Were/Are you nervous ?

Mine was last year and I didn't go. And for some of the same reasons as you.

I not going to bother to go to my reunion either, mostly because I still talk to and see whoever I care about anyway.
And, come to think of it, I'm not sure we're even HAVING a reunion, but it would be this year sometime and I haven't heard anything. I guess that's one of the perks of living so far away.
Anyhow, if its going to stress you out so much, I don't think it is worth it. Besides...didn't we all spend 4 years DYING to get OUT of high school anyway? LOL!

Come on Nancy, I know you can come up with a more creative title for your position. I'm basically..ok, I am a secretary in a doctors office...I use the title Health Care Assistant..Medical Assistant...you could be a Government Assistant..make it up ;)

Love Lisa's idea! Make up your own title :-)

I'm already looking forward to my reunion, and it's not until 2009 (our highschool goes a bit longer, I didn't graduate until I was 20). And then again, it'll only be about 20some people there, since that's our entire class (not the entire year, but our entire class).
So, if you're not comfortable going, then don't go. Why don't you do one of those Pro/Con lists, and then figure out if it's "worth" going or not? And how about that reunion being your goal for losing weight? Just some ideas :-)

Dear, forgive me if I laugh a smidge. LOL. I had my 10 year *last* year. Meaning, 2 years before yours. I can guarantee you that neither I nor you are ancient. Some people really are against reunions. To be honest, I did go to mine, and I had a great time - aside from dealing with the nasty guy my high school best friend is now marrying. He followed J around all night, and J finally gave up and left early so he could hide. Really, this guy is THAT BAD. LOL.
I wasn't nervous at all. I was just curious about everyone. Some people changed a lot, but most looked the same, but better. Less awkward teenager, ya know? And it doesn't hurt that I look way better now than then, either. Couldn't wait for the "HA! I'm cool NOW!" thing.

Mine was in 03. I didn't attend. I wasn't friends with many of the people I went to high school with, and really had little to no interest in seeing them. And then - as fate would have it - I ended up having surgery the Thursday before the reunion - so going, even if I had wanted to, simply wasn't an option!

OY! she was planning next summer and I told her it was perfect! knowing perfectly well that 1. I would be pregnant or just post pardon and not wanting to go 3k miles 2. summer is most expensive to travel..

Then she found out I was pregnant! SO she scheduled it for 2-3 months after I have baby to make sure I would come.. EVEN ON MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND!

OY I know there are people in my class who have done less then me, but I am not super looking forward to seeing everyone..

"hi everyone you all remember me. I am a SAHM to a 3 year old and a 3 month old. my life revolves around lack of housework and diapers.. I have a twice college drop out.. On a plus note I have done alot of traveling.. and that sums up my 10 years.. thank bye.."
