Me! Me! Me!

I feel like I could have written this post. I feel like such a loser when I meet up with people I use to know. Hi, my name is Stephanie and I did nothing that relates to my degree in the same town that I went to school in and then I moved to PA with my husband because he is awesome and smart and getting his PhD. And he is doing this and this and this.

There is my five minutes up?

But I am glad to hear that it went well and that you actually saw people you like. My only question to myself is - are there people that I actually liked?

And in regards to Max. Oh, sweet baby. I would be a mess if there was anything serious wrong with my pets. I would probably take off work. Not that I wouldn't take off work for an ingrown toenail but...

I am SO glad the weekend was un-painful. Makes me ALMOST want to go to my reunion. Almost.

I am so sorry to hear about Max. What terrible and devastating news. Hugs.

I can definitely relate to the part about feeling inadequate because I worry I am not ambitious enough. Is it okay if I just have an okay job? Major struggle with that right now.

and yeah...the max thing...so sad! I actually got you something at the thrift shop this weekend for a nickel (big spender) because it has to do with your cats. Read that sentence again and tell me I'm not insane. But I'll mail it to you if you send me your address?

I have only stayed in touch with one person from college, so you have me beat. I think that if I went to a college reunion, I wouldn't know anyone there.

Good job being brave, and I'm glad it was fun.

I'm sorry about Max.

Um, hi, the whole middle of this post could have been written by me about high school. Let's just say my school's name actually had the words "mathematics" and "science" in it.

So now all my friends are in law or med school or already have MBAs or have saved AIDS orphans in Africa or taught English in China. And I'm here with my 9-5 job, condo, and fiance, still living in the Midwest.

I wish I still had the drive and perfectionism I had in high school and college, but really? Meh. Can't be bothered to be that stressed anymore. So why do we feel so guilty about it? I am sure I am happier than many of them.

Also, sorry about Max! :(

Um, I relate to this post so much. Partiularly about the super-ambitious high school/college days and no settled into a comfortable medium without all the glitzy shiny components... and happy with it.

When my 5-year reunion rolls around I will be soliciting you for coping exercises. ;o)

xox

Max!!! Nooooo! I am so sorry about Max.

But for the rest of the weekend, I A) completely identify and B) think it went just awesomely. I think I have super social anxiety and then normally, when I just go, things are pretty fun. It's the making myself go thing that causes ALL the problems. SO glad you had fun!

P.S. What does it make you think when you imagine all those people doing all that social stuff EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND FOR EVER AND EVER AMEN? Because that totally stresses me out.

I'm just as crazy as you. Except maybe crazier because I simply wouldn't have gone. I'm so glad that you went, had fun, and were able to get out of there before the fun stopped.

I'm so sorry about Max!

I'm so relieved that it went well! Your title made me brace myself for the worst. Did you end up bringing your business cards? :)

Just kidding, of course. And I'm sorry to hear about Max. No fun.

Okay, I think it's a consensus that your thinking is sane, and those who are (still) so competitive are the insane ones. Glad to have THAT settled.

Your experience makes me think that maybe, just maybe this years might not be so bad (#10, yikes!).

Poor Max. I hate it when fur kids have health issues you can't do much for except give them lots of love.
