I thought it would be fun to discuss what has changed in 10 years, since I have told you what will happen in the next 10 years. I didn’t even think about this when I wrote my last blog 10 Years From Now. So, it’s kind of funny how things happen.
10 years ago I was getting ready for my high school graduation. Or had already had it. I can’t remember what day it was. All I know is that tonight I will be going to my 10 high school reunion.
First of all, where the heck did all that time go?? Seriously, I feel like it was just a few years ago that I finished high school. Which of course had me thinking of all the things I have done since I left the crummy halls of hell…I mean high school.
I have become more confident, that’s for sure. And while I am still working on my confidence, it’s loads better than it was 10 years ago. I can walk through a store with my head held high. I can laugh out loud. I can go to clubs and dance when a good song comes on. I can even look at a cute guy! Though, looking is as far as I get.
In 2006 I graduated from college with an associates degree in Computer Science. I then moved on to try and find other things to do. I studied vet assistance, radiology, and paralegal, until I decided to go back to get my bachelors degree in Computer Science.
I have written two books. Though, if I had been a little harder on myself I could have written more. I know how to bake and cook…but so do all the other girls because most of them have families.
I am actually afraid of my high school reunion. I feel like I have not done enough to take up those 10 years that I have been out of high school. Most of these people I went to school with have great jobs, kids, spouses, a mortgage. I still live at home with my parents, broke as a joke, and still stumbling through life. I feel like I have nothing to show for my 10 years out of high school.
I didn’t even lose weight like I wanted to. I’m only 5 pounds lighter than I was in high school. Also, my skin decided to flare up this week and my acne looks just as bad. Maybe instead of going I will just hide out in my bedroom. Although, I did buy some really cute shoes for the party. I wish I had been a little more diligent in my life.
