I find that I feel that I am always missing the prom. I haven’t been invited to sit at the popular kids table. I am sandwiched between the graduating class who was cool and the upcoming freshman who have tons to prove. I am was never the stylish prom queen or the talented jock.
High school. Yep some aspects of it never change. The cool and popular kids. The jocks , the party animals and those who really had no aspiration to go anywhere. It was about who could date who and who could goof off the most to be popular. I was a band geek and an honor student. I worked hard and I was seriously minded. I wanted to get outta there.
I got invited to the cool cat party once but I didn’t go because I knew that I didn’t belong. I didn’t go to the prom either. Just a couple tinges of regret.
I would like to be at the popular kids table too, don’t get me wrong, but I would like to embrace everyone along the way. I want to just once feel like I was able to accomplish something that was worthwhile outside of my day job because it’s rewards are personal and not public.
I am working on it. I am working on improving myself for myself. I am a goal oriented person and I have achieved two of my three goals this year. I am now working on the last one… but that day job is demanding my time. LOL
There is a song my son played for me called “High School Never Ends” and it really made me laugh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OsjBYxrR0c just fyi there are a few swear words in the song. But worth a laugh and keeping it all in perspective!
