10.

My 10 year high school reunion is tonight.  It's actually in less than two hours.  I keep going back and forth on whether or not I should/will go, but I finally just bought the ticket so I think I'm pretty much locked in.

I reflect on the last ten years and can create a list of all the things I've been able to experience, all the heartbreaks and successes.  Some people can't believe its been ten years.  But to me, it feels just right.  It feels like its been enough time for me to grow up a little bit (not a lot) but also it feels like there is so much more life to go.  I like this feeling.


When I reflect, I also feel like not much has changed in regards to me as a person. So now I will provide a list of things that are different but also the same:


Different
Don't live at home
Have my own car
Well-loved passport
Queen size bed (this recent upgrade from a twin has changed my life)
Go to the movies alone more than with other people
I wear makeup now (ya welcome)

Same
Still do my laundry at home
Love the Backstreet Boys
Hang out with 21 year olds 
Temporary tattoos 
Dress-up box
Lack of interest in the World Cup
Hate showers and dogs
Have a hard time saying no to a dare
Fan of no pants

In conclusion, I am mostly the same...but hopefully a little bit better.
