I just saw it on Facebook: the save the date for our 20th year reunion. There's no question that I'll be attending. I missed our last one, heavily pregnant with my youngest and unfit to be seen (I mean, I think she was literally born the next day).
It took some time to realize that even though my title and pay were the highest they had ever been, this situation was not sustainable. I was spending more time in my car than with my daughter every day, and I found that unnerving.
The "class reunion" is actually just an opportunity to gauge how far we've come in comparison to our old classmates. Who beat the expectations? Who flopped under pressure? Whose goals were achieved and whose went straight down the toilet? Why do we need this when we have Facebook?
