last weekend i attended my 10 year college reunion. it was a shit show to say the least. i had a great time. originally, i wasn't going to go for the simple fact that Jan wasn't going to be in attendance due to the fact that she had recently given birth to her beautiful little lady. in addition to that, i didn't want to make the drive in fear of hitting/sitting in major traffic (my fears became my reality). after talking to another friend that i don't often get the opportunity to see, we decided that we would attend reunion in hopes of a good time. i suppose that since we don't see each other often we would have a great time visiting with some "old friends". clearly, we were disillusioned. this isn't to say that we didn't have fun- we made it fun, we had no choice, it was either mock ourselves and mock the entire idea of the weekend or go home shaking our heads in disappointment. next time we know we don't have to go to a reunion to have a good time with each other. (we really should have known this prior to making the trip, but hindsight is 20/20).
we toured campus, slept in the dorms on the shitty mattresses, ate dining hall food, drank, took tons of photos, almost got into a fight with a 24 year old alum, drank, accosted a few people, taught some youngin's a much needed lesson, drank, met a really cool alum '53 and had a few laughs in the process. all in all, we had a good time. made me really miss my other lady friends, wish i saw them more often, wish it was easier to see them more often.
i haven't had a weekend to do "nothing"- by nothing i mean what i want to do- since i can't remember. every weekend has been something, birthdays, reunions, parties, holidays, plays etc. i feel like i haven't slept, or worked out, or simply sat like a lump on a log for a day watching tv. it's only getting worse from here. with summer rapidly approaching, i've got to get in some beach time, outside exercise, more birthdays, outdoor drinking and of course our impending move. oh plus, i am registering for summer classes so that i can hit top pay at work. fuck! i almost forgot, renovating our new apt- whenever that will actually happen, only the bank knows.
i guess it's better that i am busy than not, lets me know that i'm alive and moving... always find that silver lining, but man, i'm
