So, today was my five year high school reunion and I didn't go. I didn't think it was going to be that big of a deal, but the four people who I still keep in touch with from high school seemed shocked that I wasn't interested in going. My reasons are pretty simple. First off, I went to a prep school, so there were a lot of snobs in my grade, and this thing is not only being organized by one of them, it's being held at the country club. I'm not the country club type at all. Second, it's $25, and I simply don't have the money. Third, the aforementioned four people are four out of about seven people who I would actually give a crap about seeing again. And, finally there are about four people who will probably be there that I absolutely hated then and only grew to hate more as I got older. So, all in all, I would be paying $25 to go to a town that I hate, to hang out in a place I hate with a handful of people I like, about twenty people I have no opinion on whatsoever, and about four who I downright hate. Am I just being a huge misanthrope here or what? I mean, first of all, a five-year reunion is ridiculous to begin with. But, I'm amazed at how all my friends think I'm insane for not going while I think they're insane for going. What do you think?
