I didn't even have to lie.

Tonight I attended my college reunion. It was weird. Mostly because I realized that I graduated FIVE YEARS AGO. Holy shit.

When I finally got to the campus, I was hit with a flood of memories. I suddenly became VERY nervous. I was going to have to walk in there and tell my old profs what it is that I am doing with my life. OH SHIT.

But you know what? It was great. Talking to my old teachers wasn't how I imagined it to be. We did talk about what I am doing now, but what we really talked about wasn't about my job. It was more about me as a person. How I've learned about life and what I've learned about myself. How I plan to evolve and continue to develop.

Though it put me into debt and turned me into a crazy person, I don't regret it. Those were the most intense, exhausting, exciting and wonderful years of my life. I walked out of those doors a completely different person from the timid girl who first walked in. Leaving that reunion brought back some of the optimism I had when I first graduated. The world doesn't seem to be full of much promise these days, so I am glad to have felt it again, even if it was only for a moment.

Also, they had beer there. So that was alright.
