I opened a facbook account a few months ago, but I just let it sit there. I couldn't figure out who to add as "friends" and what to even post on there. Just this past week or so, I was contacted via facebook regarding my 25th high school reunion. Then I began adding the names to my "friends" list. It feels sort of strange. These people aren't really my "friends". In high school we knew each other's names, but I wasn't exactly Miss Cool. I was in band, swimming and the Spanish club. I didn't date. That was not necessarily by choice! I didn't go to school dances -- what by myself! Don't worry I had fun in high school. I had my own group of friends and activities and even a pretty cool looking car. If you were my passenger you had to hold the door in tight when I turned a corner -- it could fly open. I didn't say it was a good car -- it just looked nice!
Facebook feels sort of strange -- like "faux" friends. I am homeschooling 6 kids maybe "faux" is as much time as I have right now. I did find my brother. Not that he was lost - I just found him in my new "faux" neighborhood over at Facebook. If you want to come over and be my friend - look me up.
All the talk of 25th high school reunion made me nostalgic. I decided to post a little timeline:
