Write about something you’re excited about.
20 years ago I graduated from high school. My second high school.
I haven’t been back to my first high school (in Texas) in 20 years. The last time I visited the campus was summer after graduation, when my mom, sister, and I went on a massive road trip around the country. We visited as many of our old houses/schools/friends/family as we could, and even a few new places too.
I was able to go to my second high school’s 10 year reunion… but haven’t made it back to my first high school for anything official. (It was such a small school, ‘they’ usually just say “all classes are welcome” during homecoming weekend. Someone in the class of 2000 tried to get something organized for last fall… but Covid.)
All of that to say, I’m excited for a trip my sister and I are planning for this fall!! Our Texas high school may or may not do an official reunion… but we aren’t waiting for someone to coordinate that. So, in October, we are going to visit our old high school to see a non-homecoming football game, eat some Frito pie, watch the marching band perform at halftime, and maybe get lucky enough to walk around the grounds of the totally transformed campus. (They tore the old high school building down in 2016/2017.) Not only will it be wonderful to visit the school, wear the old school colors, and maybe even dig out the old class ring… it will be really wonderful to do those things with my sister, who I haven’t seen in far too long! #thankscovid
It’s exciting to be planning travel adventures again!
