Mood: they don't really care about us

I went to Busan with Megan and Nigel this weekend. It was pretty awesome. I'll write up a post about it later, but for now I want to talk about something completely unrelated: high school.

I was invited to a Facebook group, "Maine West High School-Class of 2005." Apparently a 5 year reunion is in the works. Um, what? First of all, I hadn't even realized it's been almost five years since I graduated from high school. That's a long time.

Second of all, I would never go to a 5 year reunion. What's the point? I don't associate with anyone from high school anymore, except on LJ, and I didn't particularly like high school while I was there. Plus, not enough has happened in my life since high school to warrant going.

This is what I've done since I graduated from high school: lost weight, came out, graduated from college, moved to another country, got a job. That's- well, actually, that's a lot, especially compared to some of the people I knew back then. But it doesn't seem like that much, you know?

Oh well, it doesn't matter anyways. I'm not going back home just to go to a reunion. Waste of time.

I have reservations about going to the 2005 5-year, but I feel I'd go anyway. Although it likely will be at the Beacon Tap, and nothing yells midlife Caucasian failure like the Beacon Tap.

The 10 year reunion is where it's at. You better be there, all rich and successful and shit, with some attractive life partner/squeeze.

"nothing yells midlife Caucasian failure like the Beacon Tap." That is one of the greatest things you've ever said. Kudos, Chua.

I could see myself possibly going to the 10 year reunion, although only if I continue being as thin as I am now. Gotta show off somehow, right?
