Last Friday I went to my 10 year highschool reunion. I wasn't sure what to think going into the night. I was initially hesitant, then nonchalant and finally really excited about it (split personality much?).
Upon arriving I was greeted by many familiar faces, most of whom look/act/dress exactly the same as I remember from 10 years ago. If anything I feel like I've changed the most since highschool ended. And it got me thinking about exactly HOW I've changed...
Gone are the days of rainbow coloured hair (yes RAINBOW), colour-coding my notebooks and folders (each subject had its own assigned colour), blatant disregard for authority, listening to heavy rock (what I refer to these days as "screaming music"), an unhealthy obsession with piercings and getting a drunk a lot (the last few can be linked).
My fashion sense has now become more refined - tailored, classic and fitted pieces instead of rainbow jeans with cut-off waistbands (I had a rainbow obsession ok?!!). I've lost a bit of weight since highschool (you mean a strict diet of chocolate and buttered popcorn is NOT good for the waistline????). I have the occasional alcoholic beverage but certainly no more than 2 drinks/night. I'd like to say I'm less OCD than I used to be but I'm pretty sure I would be lying if I did.
Have you changed a lot since highschool? How so?
