I’m a sick glutton for punishment, so I’d want “She looks GREAT!”. It’s why I dropped 30 lbs for my reunion 5 years ago. Thank god I did, in some ways, because everyone else seemed to be the same size as high school too.

“She seems so happy, contented and peaceful.”

It may sound “surface,” but no matter what happens in my life, I want to be able to be in a space of gratitude and peace.

It’s interesting, I’ve never been too concerned about what people say about me. However, I would expect that some might say that her life didn’t turn out like she thought it would, which is true.

We are so naive while in high school with big dreams, that when life actually hits us, we deal with it, grow, and often times, take a different direction than we originally planned.

I would hope they would share fond memories of me in high school! My 20-yr is coming up next summer….

“She’s not here? Well, it must be hard for someone so rich and famous to have a normal life. I mean, she would be MOBBED if she showed up.”

Lol.

Hmmmm…I think they would be surprised by my weight (sadly I’ve gained a lot since high school). But, I think they would notice how much more relaxed and comfortable in my own skin I am and how happy and content I am with my life.

Similar to LJ, but more crude…

“Damn. I’d like to hit dat!”

I couldn’t make it to my 30th H.S. reunion a few months ago, but I connected w/alot of classmates w/Facebook. A couple folks emailed me that they thought I was genuine and kind and still appeared to be that way. That was wonderful but the most touching thing was when a not close classmate made point to acknowledge the death of my brother who also attended the high school and graduated the prior year before us. <3
A genuine connection is what counts, a kindness of heart.

I would love people to say that I seem so happy. That’s what I want most of all for people to feel about me. And yeah, part of that would be the whole, “I’m so jealous that she got everything she wanted!” or “I wish I could be as happy as her!” aspect, but mostly it would be that it’s so hard to fake true happiness that if people saw me and thought I was happy, then it would probably be true. And that would be great.

“Those are some damn nice thighs, girl!”

Why I’m showing up in hot pants to my reunion, I don’t know.

I like reunions, even though I’m not that keen to see anyone anymore from high school and my college/grad school was too large for a reunion.

Call me shallow, what I really want them to say is, “She looks better than ever!!!”

And oh yeah, it wouldn’t hurt if they thought, “And she’s really nice and seems really happy” too

Mmmm . . . I always felt like such a wallflower when I was in my teens/twenties. I think I would like people to notice I’ve grown some confidence and am more willing to let my personality show.

lol @ furrow

I’d have to go the shallow route: “Damn, how’d she stay so skinny?”

Of course, I’d have to lose 25 pounds first.
