I can barely remember my high school graduation. There are only a few things that stick out in my mind. One was the fact that I couldn't hear the speeches because the stupid chick next to me was running her mouth the whole time. I also remember the only part of the salutatorian's speech that I do remember was the fact that he used the word 'time' about a million, well, times. Although the actual event wasn't all that memorable, I can still remember how exciting that time was. To feel free, poised on the edge of something great, not knowing what's going to happen in the future, but being incredibly excited about it. I miss that feeling.
Most people hated high school, but I absolutely loved it. I made friends that I still talk to on a daily basis, I was on the top of my game academically, and I had a lot of good, clean fun and I'm happy about that. As much as I enjoy the alcoholic, promiscuous lifestyle that I indulge in currently, I really liked being wholesome and good and still having an amazing time with my friends. I think in a lot of ways it made my friendships with them stronger. I was a total wild-child in middle school and the good Lord knows that didn't get me anywhere. Nor did I form any lasting connections from that period in my life.
All in all, it was kind of nice to revisit high school. You all know I'm a sucker for nostalgia and I definitely got a good dose of it this weekend.
