5-year reunion  
so last night was our high school 5-year reunion.

what can i say? people stay the same no matter what's happened to them, and that in itself is a strange concept. imagine being with this group of people, and feeling like we're still back in year 12 together; yet at the same time, many are married, some are pregnant, countless others been overseas, and other experiences. we all look the same, only older. we all act the same even. and even though in 5 years plenty has happened, it feels like only a heartbeat ago we were sharing classes and camp adventures at good ol' southern vales.

it's a surreal feeling, that everything and nothing has changed.


being there has almost made me excited to return back to queensland after all. i guess i want to prove that i can make something of my life, as well. i want to have an experience too.

that's neat yet depressing...since so many of us want to escape from ourselves but it looks like we just gotta make the most of what we have.

i know. but i think change IS possible, it's just a matter of perspective...

i wish my class had a 5 year reunion last year. the guys that were trying to plan it were too busy being druken fools to follow through on it. :P

my friend who planned it - we said 5 years ago that we would NOT plan this reunion, that it was someone else's turn (as we did other things back then, 1-week reunion, yearbook, etc)... but then we realised that no-one else would do it if we didn't. eep :P

Apparently my high school is organising a reunion... I can't imagine going back there. A friend of mine made me come to a party with her because there was going to be alot of people there she went to school with, and she doesn't like it because many of them make her feel as though nothing has changed, that she's still the same person. She wasn't comfortable with that. I'm not comfortable with that attitude either, and I suspect there'll be quite a few people I went to school with who will be like that (damn catholics *g*). A daunting thought, venturing into the past. I'm not sure I will go, unless my friends I'm still in touch with want some moral support or something. I'm not sure I'm that brave.

i so want to go to a high school reunion, but it'd be hard, considering that i am not living on the same continent as the others anymore. {{hugs}}
