Class of Ninety Five

Call me young or call me old. I feel like both! Still a spring chicken but man, this next generation is making me feel OLD. Ha! I'm sure when I was 18 I was making mid-30 year old's feel the same way. Regardless, I cannot believe that it's pushing 20 years since I graduated. (Give or take 3 to 4 years!) ;)

As I think back to my high school years the regrets far outweigh the happy thoughts. The person I am now, the real me, wishes I could go back and tell my younger self to be brave and make wiser choices. But don't most of us feel that way? Or maybe some of us anyway? I wish that my high school years had happier memories. I wish that I could truly say I enjoyed school and made some of my closest friends there but I can't.

What I can say is that I learned a lot. All those lessons learned are what have shaped me today. And that's a good thing! So while those years aren't the happiest, they are certainly not the worse and there is plenty to giggle about. And, yes, there are some happy moments mingled in. I wasn't completely miserable. ;)
