"...you're always going to be the same, oh no, you'll never change..."

I realized today that May 27, 2010 marks 10 years since the day that I graduated high school. I don't know about most people but it feels like an eternity and yesterday all at the same time. I remember when Ms. Stewart called my name at graduation and she goes, "Edward Christopher McCombs". I thought, "what the F*#$, woman! She got my name wrong!"

It's funny if you try to forget all of the events that have molded you since and go back to that mindset. To think about what dreams and goals you had. Did you want to go to college? Did you feel devastated that it was all over or were you finally free? The one thing that was so amazingly important to me was to realize that I didn't want to peak to soon. I never wanted to be the cool kid and thank God for bucktooth teeth, acne, and arms that belong attached to a 4 year old girl or else I could have been a football star.

I remember one person in particular, who was a "football star". He blurted out, during a presentation in English class, something about my nose and its' size. Well, for starters, and to quote a good friend, "big nose, big hose" and secondly, I Facebook-stalked this person and he looks like a 58 year old convict from his profile photo. So, put a fork in it, it's done! I win, mofo!

Anyways, I felt awkward, shy, panicked, lame and that was just yesterday! Imagine how bad it was 10 years ago? In high school, I always remember that I talked about Australia and how I wanted to visit. Well, here I am. So, I guess that makes me a success. I may not have invented the Post-It or been cast for the next season of "Jersey Shore" but I'd say I have turned out alright.

I'm glad you have reached your Australian goal. I can't even remember my goals from 10 years ago. I've alway been an underachiever anyway. So, I guess I've reached that goal. Thanks for the post, Edward.
