Odd Topic - Facebook and Ex-Boyfriends

Okay, this has nothing to do with parenting or the Navy, just random musings on a Friday when J has duty.  So, I am facing down my 10 year high school reunion.  I have been hemming and hawing over going since I found out about it.  There are just a few people that I want to see, which is fine, but there's another problem.  So, I was a nerd and I was in JROTC.  I thought it was so important.  Now that I am in the real Navy, I am painfully aware of how nerdy this was.  So here's the issue, I have ABSOLUTELY no desire to go back and talk to people about how cool JROTC was, cause it wasn't, not at all, we were nerds.

Here's another thing.  An ex-boyfriend found me on facebook and started emailing me.  I really have no desire to think about him again.  So I have been ignoring him, which I feel kind of bad about, but not really.  I don't have anything to say, it was over 10 years ago.  I am married, I have a kid, and I live a completely different life.  There is no longer anything for us to even remotely connect on.

I like facebook, I really do.  I love finding old friends that I never would have otherwise.  I like being able to keep up with people that we have to move away from.  However, there are some people that I wanted to leave in my past.  I don't want to relieve those memories, I don't want to think about who I was back then.  I feel like I have grown so much as person that I can't really relate who I was back then.  Ah well, technology isn't perfect.

  1. Haha, I won't be able to make it to the reunion, but I soooo agree with you on the NJROTC nerd thing. I feel a little bad when I see people that still think it was so cool. I did learn a lot (honestly), but, sheesh, how dorky! - Carolyn
