Lately a few people I knew in high school have run across my Facebook or Myspace profiles. I made my Myspace profile private, because I was feeling stalked - and now I have a public blog! ::shrug:: Anyway, it's made me troll my high school searches to see what some of these people are doing now.

Surprisingly, not a lot of them are married, although a lot of people have what looks like a significant other in their picture. Which, I think, is kind of lame, unless you both share a profile ... OK, that's still lame.

I could go on and on about how I was such a loser in high school, and an outcast, and hated the whole thing, but that's not necessarily true. I didn't like high school much, and definitely had issues, but I don't think I was that much of an outcast. In fact, I would venture to say that I'm almost the same person I was then (minus the issues and drama). I had friends, I was in color guard, and I'm sure things could have been better but they are what they are, and it's been long over.

On the other hand, there are plenty of people who just never seem to give it up. I'd be the first one to sign up for a 10 year reunion (which is only 3 short years away!), but for two reasons. First, I am morbidly curious what has happened to these people. Living 2,000 miles away and private profiles really make that tough. Second, I've done well for myself. Not like I need to show it off, but I'd have nothing to be ashamed of.

Oddly enough, I think I saw a girl I went to high school with the last time I was home. I have no idea who she was. A man was with her and she had a little boy in tow. We kind of looked at each other weird, and she kind of waved noncommittally in my direction.

Could I possibly be that old???
