10 Year Reunion: Royal Highlanders Class of 2002

The last Saturday in June was my 10 year class reunion. I almost didn't go. I am so happy that I did, and am so happy that Robert was okay with me going with out him. Instead I went with my HS buddy, James Guidi, who now is living his dream as a rock star in his band The Terns. James and I had every art class together. The memories are certainly unforgettable, not to mention the terrible inside jokes we had. We lost touch a couple years after graduation, and just a year ago we came in contact with each other. I am so happy we did. I realized how much I missed my friend.

1999? Art class. L to R: James Guidi doing his infamous lip curl, Me wearing my hood as usual, Seth Hall looking his normal ADHD space cadet.
2012 James Guidi and I. Friends once more. Reunited and it feels so good.

James picked me up and we drove off into the sunset to Sagebrush Cantina, where we proceeded to wait for other class mates to show up. Some people were east to recognize and others, we couldn't remember their names and what not. it was fun playing the guessing game. We socialized with those we hadn't seen/ talked to in for reals 10 years, ate from the taco bar, told our old crushes we had crushes on them (okay, that was only me...) took tons of pics in the photo booth, wishing I took more pics with friends. We ended the night at Cisco's Bar and Club where Robert met up with us and we danced and chatted until 1:30 AM. Needless to say, I had a blast (from the past) and needed to do this for myself. I needed to forget for one night how old I was and my responsibilities. I needed to be 18 again with my cherished high school memories with the people I care about.

Amber and I. Back in HS, we hung out a lot. Our other 1/3 of the group didn't make it to the reunion that eveing, so I am sad I don't have pics with her. Love you Cathy! ABC!

Alana and me. A fellow friend, fashion designer, and classmate. I love her! 

Class Reunion Picnic the next morning.
L to R: Danny, Jacci, me, Robert, & Jessica

The next day, we woke up groggy, but ready to take M.E. to the reunion picnic and park so all the little spawns of ourselves could play. Jacci and Jessica I have known since Jr. High. I love those girls!

This is great, Bethany. Such a fun night! I am forever grateful for our friendship. As we grow older, truth, trust, and honesty in a friend is harder to find, yet more and more important.
