Awesome High School Reunion!

"People say high school is about getting an education and getting into a good college to succeed in life. Well, to me, high school is about making memories and good times that will last forever."

The alumnus from 1986-2012

I was first contacted in 2012 by my high school mate, Yanti, about the reunion. I was still in Ireland that time. I prayed that I could come to the reunion in April 2013, and I was very glad when moving to Singapore in June 2012. Even happier when my dream came true.

I haven't met my school mates since graduated in 1995. Fifteen years is a long time, so I miss them yearly.

A bit nervous to meet old friends from High School, I was questioning myself: How are they now? Are they excited to meet me and the others? Do they still recognize me? Will someone I want to say sorry be there?

My mind battled with old memory and questions.

Alumnus and next alumnus


My high school was located in North Jakarta, the very north of Jakarta. I chose accounting class as my mom suggested. I myself was graduated in 1995. I wasn't the smartest student in my class (and did not realize about that!) but I had many good friends who had brilliant brains in the subject. Never got good marks in accounting, and that time I had realized that I hate accounting and didn't want to be accountant. 

Although accounting was not my favorite subject I finished my high school, in three years for sure. 

All fabulous teachers  


However, I did make it to the reunion. Most of my class mates were delighted to see each others. Someone who I wanted to see was actually busy with the event, I hesitated to approach him and did not talk to him till the event finished. 

Some people change and that's up to them. I just want to enjoy the reunion with my old good friends.

Nice saying shows your character but that doesn't mean you can criticize. You can still do both in nice and polite way.
