Class of 2001 Baby!

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 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.

So random because I have a reference to my 10 year high school reunion on my post today, too.

My 10 year reunion is next month. I can't believe 10 years has past by. I need time to start slowing back down a little. But have a great time!
