Reunion Re-Cap

Well, I guess I should mention the reunion. I only went to the mixer for my graduating class on Fri. night and the "Homecoming Celebration" on Sat. night.

Friday night LOML* accompanied me. We met one of my college friends and her husband for dinner before the mixer.

I'll start by saying that even after ten years, everyone looked EXACTLY the same. They had the mixer in the new coffee house on campus. The drinks were expensive, the location was over-lit, and there was no music or anything. It was odd. Besides my friend and her husband, I only spoke to two other classmates. I forgot that I wasn't really friends with most of the people who went to school with me. [That was the downside of going to college in my hometown. During college, I still hung out with my friends from high school.] I had a really great time with my friend and her husband. We even went to their house after the mixer and played some Wii Bowling. I drank WAY too much and was completely hung over on Saturday.
The 'Celebration' on Saturday was fairly nice. They held it outside. I almost didn't go because I felt so crappy and knew I wouldn't talk to those people again. However, it was the only event one of my other good friends from college was attending and I really wanted to see him. I haven't seen him in a few years. It was great to catch up with him and his wife, and we had a good time. My hangover reached its max and I left a little early to go home and hang out with LOML*.

I'm glad I went to the reunion all in all, but I don't know what I expected. I knew that the majority of the people I hung out with in college would not be there. It was great to see some of the people I did hang out with and to gawk at the people I didn't.
If you can't tell, I'm trying to be nice about the whole experience because I love Spring Hill and the I love the connections I did make there.
Okay, that's all I have to say about that.

*LOML=Love of My Life

  1. I think that was very well said, and does capture the essence of Saturday evening. Bottom line, it was great to see you, Heather, and Gabe. What else matters?!?
