It's Reunion Time Again

I graduated in 1988 from Fairfax High School in Fairfax, Virginia.  I was Chris Ann Balulis (pronounced Ba-LOO-less) in those days. 

I wasn't even thinking about our twenty year high school reunion.  But there it was, in my mail....a solicitation-looking postcard advertising the 20th reunion.  I almsot through it out because I thought it was some lame direct mail piece to help you find old classmates.

If you are a member of the Fairfax High School Class of 1988, and didn't receive your postcard invitation, the information for the event is below.

Chris Ann, you're having your 20th reunion on my birthday. I hope it is a good one for you. You haven't aged hardly at all. I'm serious. You look just as wonderful as that high school picture. You must have those youthful genes.

Chris Ann - I was in the US briefly during the fall of your 10th grade and spent a day at your HS for Model UN representing Thailand.  The group I was in (Economic) couldn't get their act together so when we got to the General Assembly, we looked incompetent.  I got irked and led a walkout by my delegation

Tchaka:  Wish I could say that I remembered that.  I wasn't involved in many school activities.

Chris Ann High school reunions are very enlightening - the changes in the class favorites are sometimes scary - they are fun, though,  Art Kruschka

Art:  Nothing had really changed the last time I went for our 10 year.  I am debating as to whether or not to go to this one.

Chris Ann - One thing is for sure your classmates will recognize you!  I made it to my 5 year and 10 year but not my 20 year.  While people did change quite a bit I remember thinking many did not change enough....

Sandra:  I must admit, I didn't go.  But a few days before, I ran into someone I had gone through kindergarten on up through high school with.  She recognized me in a second.  Of course, once I realized it wasn't some strange lady in the parking lot yelling at me, I recognized her too.

Chris Ann-  I wrote a blog about this recently...not my reunion but my brother and sister-in-laws.  They had a great time at their 20 and I had a great time at mine. The difference between 10 and 20 is enormous--people have really started to 'dig in' to their lives. No one cares anymore about any of the old baggage. I found everyone to be truly interested in what was going on now and not then. I would say go and have a blast!

Oops! I just read your last comment that you didn't go...I guess I should finish reading the comments before hitting the post button.

Holly:  Don't worry about it.  As I was reading your comment I thought, "Darn it, I should have gone!"

I had one this summer.  Much longer ago from my HS graduation from yours.  Had a blast.  Who knew.

Pat:  I'll probably never go to another one.  Was a total misfit in high school.
