I'm glad I was a good student in high school. I had a 4.86 GPA, was involved in A.S.B. and actually liked school. Getting up in the morning, however, was a different story (why did I have cheerleading at 6:30am everyday?!?) I liked learning (thanks, Mr. Nath and Mrs. Olivas!), having a say in planning on-campus events and of course, socializing. And even though I concentrated on the grades/academic part of high school, I'm glad I also made it a point to meet new people. Because who knew that 20 years later, we'd all be grown-ups with jobs, kids and responsibilities?
I recently re-connected with a high school classmate who owns his own flower business. He has introduced me to some of his colleagues, one of which invited me to a Secret Garden-themed bridal shoot. I was more than happy to be a part of it.
