Not Because I Don't Want ToI will never go to a high school reunion, not because I don't want to but because I wouldn't know where to go. I lived in a midwestern state growing up and attended two high schools in my hometown. Due to an ex-boyfriend harrasing me I had to switch mid sophomore year.
My junior year my dad decided to move to California and I went with him. I started my 3rd high school mid junior year.
I made friends in all three schools, and enjoyed all three schools but never felt connected with anyone there to make it worth my time to go to a high school reunion at any of them. Not to mention that my senior year I was so behind in credits due to differences in graduation requirements between states that even if I didn't end up pregnant at 17 I doubt if I would have graduated on time anyway.
It seemed much easier to just get my GED. I wish that my high school experiences would have been different, I wish that I could look back at those experiences both good and bad and know that regardless of how it went I actually belonged even if the only way that I belonged is that I didn't belong.
