I could attend a high school reunion at the end of this month, but it feels like a bad idea, especially while I’m jobless. I’d have to miss out on some things I had planned to do here that weekend. I’m no longer in touch with the people attending, and they are all married (as far as I know) and most of them have kids.
Just thinking about the reunion sent me down a Facebook spiral. As I see photos of childhood friends hanging out with one another and with their kids, I am sad that my life has turned out to be one of such detachment.
