rambling meandering

This weekend marks my 10 years high school reunion. I can hardly believe how quickly time has flown! I could wax lyrical about how 'it feels like only yesterday'...but the truth is, high school seems like a life time ago. Some times i look at pictures of myself at that time and wonder if i even know that girl any more.

I think college was the best thing i could have done for myself. It got me out of home, thinking for myself, and seeing the world. It brought me so much joy and happiness! I completely recommend it to everyone.

The girl i knew in high school was angry and powerless. The girl who graduated college was much calmer and so much more in control of herself and her destiny. Maybe that is how most people feel about their teenage years, angry and powerless. I was just wise enough to surround myself with wonderful people who helped me grow out of that.

and maybe high school me would be a little disappointed that i'm not massively famous or a serious force in theatre (or some thing)...but i think she'd be really glad to know peace was only a few short years away.
