Prove it

So, today I got contacted by an ex girlfriend from high school. I am a part of LinkedIn, which is a business version of FaceBook. I never check it but today I got an email message from a girl I dated in high school for about a month. The title of this blog tells you who it is if you know me.

It was funny because when I read the name I had absolutely no idea who it was. I am sure you think that is because with as many ladies as I went through in high school it is just too hard to keep track but that isn't the case. I just forgot her last name. It took me about 10 minutes but I realized who it was and when I did I felt like an idiot.

The point of that story is to tell you that tonight I got out my Senior yearbook and looked through it. If you haven't done this in a while, here is a challenge. Go thorough your yearbook and try to name as many people as you can without looking at the names. It is really difficult but I spent four years with these people and some even longer. I had a fun time flipping through the pages of people and reminiscing about this guy or that girl.

It was funny because it made me realize not only was I a doofus in High School but thinking back there were so many opportunities and chances that I didn't take. If I only knew then what I know now. Sure, I am the person I am today because of the life I have lived but it is always fun to think, "If I could just go back and tell myself..." That question is never ending but I am happy with where I ended up so I can't complain.

I did make a realization that aside from Thomas, I have zero friends from high school; even he doesn't count because we didn't go to the same school. It's somewhat tempting to try to reconnect with a few people but I don't think I could do it. It would be forced and I don't want that. Anyway, after you read this, go grab your yearbook and peruse it. You will be surprised at what you find.

That is all,
