I had such a good time time at my high school reunion! Most of the people I'd not seen in thirty years, so it was fun checking out what they looked like and then catching up a bit too. Everyone looked great - and the women hadn't gained weight at all like my friend had warned. And they were friendly and happy and Mike and I stayed four hours!
The picture above is my senior picture from the yearbook. I always hated that picture. The photographer was mean and nasty and I was not a happy camper when he took this picture. I wanted to slap him.
I hooked up with my best friend from back then and she looked just the same to me. We talked and talked and I showed her some pictures from back when we were in high school. I've always taken a lot of photos, so I had some great ones of her to laugh about. We're getting together with two other old friends in about two weeks. These are the girls I used to hang out with all through high school. Part of my old "gang" y'know.
But now to the important stuff: what I wore and how I did my hair! Ha! I decided I wanted my hair to be kind of wild, since it was always sleek in high school. I used to dry it upside down in front of our heat vent in the winter to get it super straight back then. I braided my hair in two braids and then took it down and never combed it. I picked out the ends a bit to fluff it up a little, but for the most part I wanted it to look ropey. I edited the photos to give my white skin (yes, it's just about that white) a bit of an ethereal look to kind of go with the hair. Mike did a great job catching me moving about. This is my favorite:
I don't know what the heck I was doing here, but I like how my hair was moving:
And here is one of me from the party itself, just of my face. I was sitting with my best friend from high school, Cathy, but she doesn't want her face online, so it's just me. We didn't take a lot of pictures at the reunion; there was just too much to do and people to talk to. I just wish I'd gotten someone to take some pictures of Mike and me together.
