5 Year Grad Reunion

Well with nothing else to say I guess I better talk about my 5 year high school reunion. Boy that was an experience.

It took place on Saturday and I was pretty worried about going to it, because there are only about 3 people I actually wanted to see. Thankfully they were all there and I had some friends to talk to. Anyone I have an interest in hanging out with has moved out of town, but Barbra still lives in Kelowna with her boyfriend and we traded phone numbers. I hope to give her a call this week and maybe we can watch a movie or something. I'd be happy just to sit and talk about anything though, I'm pretty lonely when it comes to interacting with people my own age.

There were lots of people there that haven't changed at all from high school, and I mean that in the worst possible way. However a lot of people are doing pretty well. I was shocked at the number of people who have bought houses. Plus all the people I wouldn't have expected to be married are, or are engaged to be wed. My friend Chris Gross who got married 2 years ago is expecting a baby in mid September. That was pretty intense, but I'm really happy for him. It was tough to go to this thing and not put a positive spin on my life story. I'm sure many of the people there weren't doing that well, but they put their best foot forward. I would say it went as well as I could have hoped.

Aside from that I've just been working and surviving. I've been in pretty good spirits over the weekend. I'm starting to waver a bit today, and I'm really struggling to stay focused and positive.

I'm pretty excited to pick up Hot Fuzz and 300 tomorrow. I'm bummed that I won't be able to watch them with Syd, as we saw both of them in theaters and it's always fun to rewatch a movie with the people you first saw it with. Funny I never thought about this before, but since I moved to Ontario I only watched those 2 movies, plus Pan's Labyrinth in theater, and have bought or am planning to buy them all. I guess we pick good movies. I'm hoping maybe Barbra and Ian want to watch one of them together. I think that would be a fun thing to do and it would give me a chance to take my mind off things.

Well I guess that's a pretty good sized post. For not feeling like I had anything to say I managed to ramble on for a while. I guess if I do this a little more often I can have smaller but more frequent updates. Anyway if you know me, then you know how I feel about you, and I'm feeling that way right now ;)

I don't allow spam comments thank you very much. I don't like getting excited and thinking that someone left me a comment only to find some bogus person with a link to whatever they're selling.
