In a bit of a last minute decision I decided to go to my 25th college reunion. Let me just say I graduated at the age of 8...there is no other explanation for 25 years since graduation.
I have never been to a reunion (either high school or college). I have always felt like I have kept in touch friends from college and I didn't really need homecoming to catch up with them. However, a good friend talked me into going .
Okay, the truth is I have wanted to go to some of the reunions, but I have skipped them because I never felt like I was thin enough, successful enough or whatever stupid lies we tell ourselves when it comes time to see people from our past. Maybe I secretly want to be that person who comes in and heads turn - wow, look at her! Cue Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. No, I didn't tell everyone I invented Post-Its :)
I went to school in Millkin University in the heart of central Illinois (about 2 hours from home.) We took the same route I traveled many times in college. Every little town had its own giant grain elevator.
