We're heading back to Indy, my hometown, this weekend for a very special event.
My 10 year high school reunion.
Dun, dun, dun.
How the heck has it been 10 years? That seems like such a long time. I feel like I've been out of high school forever...but still, 10 years sounds like forever.
I'm not super jazzed up about this reunion...in fact I probably wouldn't be going if it weren't for the fact I had to help plan the event. Yep. You're reading the blog of a former class president here. Impressed? Yes? Want to learn a little bit more about "high school Jenny?"
I was a huge nerd. Surprising, I know! I wouldn't say I was dorky, but my grades were extremely important to me and undoubtedly my top priority. I was number one in my class from 7th grade on. Yeppers. Valedictorian. Woot, woot!
But although I was very much the academic type, I also played sports. I played volleyball, basketball, and ran track. Now when I say 'ran track,' that really means I threw shot put and discus and then hid with my friends in the bathroom whilst everyone else ran their laps. And I also lounged on the high jump pit. Oh track. Good times.
But I was a legit basketball player. In fact, I still hold almost all of the rebounding records at Speedway. If I could go back to high school to do anything again it would be to play basketball. Those were probably some of the most meaningful and memorable times of my life. I remember so many conversations my dad and I would have about my games. Such a bonding experience it was for us. I miss those. Very much.
My best friends from high school, the two I still talk to, weren't in my class. So although I think it will be a good time, I'm not dying to go back. But at least I'll get to show off my little cutie pies and have a little wine. Not a bad weekend in my book!
Hope y'all have a great weekend and I'll let you know how it goes when we get back.
