I just got back from my friends' high school reunion. I say "friends'" because I was practically friends with the whole grade. I started hanging out with my circle of friends when I wasin 10th grade and tonight for the millionth time I was told I will always be an honorary whatever they are.

I walked in and one of the guys (Chudnow) didn't seem especially thrilled to see me but K'tanaw was ecstatic! She grabbed me and hugged me and we spent a good part of the evening together.

I ran into Emily (Kimmel) and we sat together. I gossipped to her about the graduates I didn't like and we kinda talked through the whole thing. I also got to see Ezra, my old teachers, Shirah, Fallon, Pammy and Rachel (>:P), Talya, AJ, Jeremy, Aaron, and...MR CALKINS!!! I got to see my all time favorite teacher :D (well...actually it's a tie between him and Rabbi Bergman).

I was soo happy for my friends but I felt a little weird. My friends are going their separate ways. I have no real reason to visit JAMD anymore (except for my sophomore and junior friends but after that I really won't have a reason). I'm going to miss them so much.

I walked in and AJ asked me where my cap and gown was (an old inside joke because everyone thought I was a junior last year when I was really a senior. When asked what I planned to do last year after graduation I replied that I was coming back to "really" graduate. I can't believe it's been a whole year since I've graduated. I feel like a completely different person than I was in high school. I felt like I still fit in but at the same time I felt...different. A weird mix of feeling older and wiser while at the same time being immature with my old friends, acting like I did in high school.

One of my friends who happens to be a junior asked me what year I graduated. When I told her I was now 19 and a college sophomore her jaw visibly dropped and she exclaimed "Jeez you're old!" Then she laughed and said I will always be a high school junior. I guess you could say the night was bittersweet and a tiny bit thought provoking.
