I'm happy to report I survived my high school class reunion. Not only did I survive -- I had a great time! It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and to catch up with so many people. And everyone was so down-to-earth and friendly. The lesson I'm taking away from this experience is that when you put yourself out there and try to connect with someone, it usually works out and people usually respond. Now why didn't I know this when I was actually in high school?
