High School Memories — Laura’s 20th Reunion + Some Celebrity Superlatives [PICTURES]
Behold….about 1/5 of the Jamestown High School Class of 1993.
Our 20th high school reunion was this weekend, and despite all my own fears, insecurities and insatiable anxieties, it was about the best time I’ve had in my adult life. (In case you’re searching, I’m over at the far left with the blue/green striped dress.)
Reliving old memories was incredible…and making new ones was even more satisfying. Admittedly, the “pre-party” the night before was a bit anxiety-inducing because we all faced each other for the first time out at a pub, after 20 years, with no name tags. But I was pleasantly surprised to see most of us aged quite gracefully. (But on Saturday, the name tags certainly helped ease a bit more of that uncomfortable feeling.)
This is Amy…she and I met at age 4. The girl in the picture below on the left is Natalie…we all met at the same time, and went through every single phase of life together possible, from playing dolls and trading stickers, to our awkward tomboy stages, through boys and teenaged heartaches, cliques and wardrobe fits, and everything in between.

Overall, I’m kicking myself at the silly insecurities I had during the weeks approaching the reunion. After the first five minutes, we were all only concerned with catching up a bit, reliving some memories and creating a lot of new ones. I think it’s safe to say, most of us are looking forward to the 25th already.
Strangely enough, a new blurb on celebrity superlatives recently surfaced…can you guess which was voted “Most Likely To Be Arrested”?
We wanted to do negative superlatives (in good spirit, but things like “most likely to get arrested”, “most likely to skip class”, etc) but our yearbook adviser wouldn’t let us. They all had to be “inoffensive”. Apparently parents don’t want everyone to know their kids are skippin’ class left and right.
What were you voted “Most Likely To…”?
