I am a daughter. I am a wife. I am a mother. But through it all, I have been and always will be, a woman.

Life is but a Dream

My 25th high school reunion was a couple of weeks ago.  I decided not to go and my husband asked me why.  I tried to tell him that I just didn’t fit in with those people anymore.

See, I transferred out of that school in the middle of my sophmore year.  I didn’t graduate from there.  I didn’t go to prom.  I didn’t date anyone from there.  I wasn’t in any of the clubs, or on any teams there.  I missed all of that bonding that happens in the last 2 years of high school.  I just don’t fit there.

Plus, high school feels like a dream.  I remember it.  I can feel what I felt, but it has no “reality” to it.  I lived it, but it doesn’t feel real.  It feels like a dream.

I’ve said that high school was “several lifetimes ago.”  How true that is!  I have changed SO much since then.  I went to college.  I dropped out.  I moved (several times).  I got married.  I got divorced.  I went back to college.  I graduated this time.  I remarried.  I had kids.  See?  I am SO very much NOT the person I was in high school.

High School was a dream.  A nice dream.  (That school anyway.)  But still a dream.  One that I like to revisit in my memory, but like most memories, the dream is probably much better than the reality.  So I will refrain from going to reunion.  I’ll only see those people on Facebook.  After all, FB has that same “unreal” feel to it, now doesn’t it.

Or am I the only one that feels that way?  Does that still feel real to you?

  1. I can honestly say high school was the worst time in my life, so I’ve never been back. Of course, now that I have become a panda, life is much better, and were it not for being picked on and being nerdy, I would never have found the courage to do my own thing, embrace the solitude that is the life of an artist (at least when you are getting started) and becomming a panda. Huzzah! Thank goodness I was not popular!

    • I agree! The school I transferred to was truly a nightmare. I view high school as Hell on Earth. I’m glad you’re a Panda and life is so much better. I, too, am use to the solitude of being a nerd as I was not even close to popular. Thank you very much for your wonderful words. They are much appreciated.
