I was talking with etoileeyes the other day, and she mentioned some Thespian drama that occurred during our senior year of high school. I was surprised to discover that I could not remember a single bit of it, no matter how hard I tried. To be sure, I was not entirely functional at that point in my life, but I have a tendency to hold grudges, so it is amazing to realize that I have forgotten so many things that must have once been very bitter.

Now, I am finally ready to give my show choir dresses away. I held on to them for over eight years as some sort of testament or reminder, but despite their presence in my closet, I forgot, I forgot, and I don't care that I did. The garments no longer hold the breath that they used to. I do not need them. I've forgotten how to sing for competition and remembered how to speak for myself. Someone else can wear them now, as something else or for something else.

Now I'm staring in my closet, right where all my band uniforms are still hanging after 7 years. I'm moving out in the next month or two, and I think your post may have helped me to finally let them go.

Thank you :).

Ah yes. lol (sorry, I must laugh). I can’t tell you my multiplication tables, but I can give you recollections of events since I was a toddler. I’m sure it’s not healthy, actually, I know it’s not healthy. I hold things against my mother that she no longer has any memory of. Anyway, that said, hahaha, high school drama drama … I can recall it all with just that little prompt.

I remember up to the Farrens (sp?) and the Jesusmobile, and have vague recollections of reforming into a "board" system, but beyond that ... if it weren't for pictures that I know exist, I wouldn't even know what roles I played. I think I must have slept through it.

I really don't remember many specifics, but I remember a lot of anger, hatefulness and then a lack of interest in the whole Drama thing towards the end. Thank god for Anime and Comics LOL... Anyhow, I'm glad I've let go of some of it, some of the two faced moments I've learned from... I'm just really glad to be out of there though. I wouldn't wish high school on my worst enemy... :)
