10 year high school reunion!

     Back at the end of August I had my 10 year high school reunion!
     I was so happy to have this experience and did my best to communicate with some of my colleagues before actually getting there. It didn't turn out exactly like I thought it would, I expected more of my former colleagues to participate, but the ones who took part, myself included, were thrilled about it!

     Making my way to our old school, made me feel a bit nervous, kind of like it used to feel in the beginning of each school year, getting back through those gates and excitedly waiting to see all of my piers.  But seeing a couple of familiar faces right away, made me feel so comfortable!

     Our class teacher was there as well and soon after, all of the 11 attendees were present and we went to find a class. Unfortunately, we could not meet in our former classroom as it  was in renovations, but we went to the adjacent building and found it quite comfortable as well. I quickly shared flower crowns to all of my girl classmates. I had this idea a long time ago and I think it was a good icebreaker, plus it made it all feel a bit more ceremonious!

     Each of our turns came, alphabetically, to share some information about the last 10 years of our lives. I couldn't help but feel really impressed with all of my colleagues. I felt that we were all really grown up and each and every single one of us, though coming from completely different backgrounds and having had such different experiences, we were all mature, strong and accomplished. It made me feel proud to be in the same room with them.

     On top of that, listening to our teacher share little bits of his wisdom and remind us all of the important aspects of life was such a great experience. The way he was addressing us with such kindness and pride, like only a parent would address his children, made being there so worth it!

     After we wrapped up our conversations at school, we headed to the restaurant, had some good food,  pictures, cake, even more conversations and ended it a few hours later.  All in all, it was a very satisfying experience and it meant a lot more than I imagined it would!

     Looking forward to the next reunion, 20 years since high school! I am also wishing all of my former classmates all the best, may the next years be full of happy events, health, success and fulfillment!
