When I go into the forums on different venues & social networking sites, it sometimes feel like I have stepped back in time. Like I just walked through the door, and into the hall of my old high school. It amazes me, that turning fifty is just around the corner, and on occassion, so is high school. Not that high school was bad, I don't mean that, it's just that as you get older, you can do with a lot less drama. And looking back, there was always some sort of drama. How could there not be? It was all part of growing, learning, and trying to figure out what it meant to be a grown up. But at this stage of my life, I am a grown up. I know what it means to be a grown up, I've been one for years. Or so it seems.
In high school, teen hormones & immaturity were to blame for a lot of the drama. And I guess at my age, alot of people would say, hormones are still to blame for the drama that pops up, every so often, in the forums. But the thing is, we are not teenagers. We are adults, with adult resposibilities. We take care of others, we have jobs, we do important things everyday. And yet, some of the post that go on in the forums, make us look like hormonal, petty, high schoolers, without a lick of sense. It blows my mind that women such as ourselves, can regress so quick. I am all for having fun and joking around, but not at the expense of others.
I will continue to pass through the forums and visit, but I will not go back to high school. I'm just too old!
